Guy uses Nick Saban’s office for marriage proposal (Video)

When Nick Saban was not in the office on May 2, he probably had no idea that his private room would be used for a marriage proposal. But that’s exactly what happened.

A young man named Drew Clayton pulled some strings and set up a marriage proposal from inside the Alabama coach’s office for his current fiancee, Kayla Posey, who worked for the football program during her time at Bama.

According to AL.com, Clayton arranged the proposal through some of Posey’s friends in the football office. They helped him hide in the private bathroom inside the coach’s office while Posey was out to lunch. They also replaced Saban’s 2012 BCS National Championship Ring with the engagement ring.

When Posey returned from lunch, she was instructed to clean some of Saban’s rings in preparation for a visit from a very important guest. She was scheduled to give four tours that day and was told another one had been added to the schedule.

Drew Clayton Nick Saban proposal

As you can see in the hidden camera video set up by Posey’s pals, the young lady was cleaning off the rings when she came across her engagement ring … and she was shocked and confused. That’s when Clayton emerged from the bathroom and got down on a knee to propose.

And how’s this for a detail that should not be overlooked: Clayton says he found Saban’s stash of snacks and snagged one of the coach’s famous Oatmeal Creme Pies. That was easily the best part of the story.

John Harbaugh stumbles upon marriage proposal (Video)

John-Harbaugh-proposalDavid Rudich and his girlfriend Amy Segall are huge Baltimore Ravens fans. Because of that, Rudich decided the Ravens’ practice facility — also known as The Castle — would be a great place to ask Segall to be his wife. He had no idea how perfect of a place it would turn out to be.

After she was so taken aback that she spit out a bad four-letter word, Segall accepted the proposal. She then looked up like she had seen a ghost, which probably made Rudich a bit nervous. Not to worry, Dave — your proposal had just become one of the greatest proposals of all-time courtesy of Ravens coach John Harbaugh.

By pure coincidence, Harbaugh happened to be walking out of the building as the proposal was being recorded on camera. He asked the couple if they had just gotten engaged and came over to congratulate them. Harbaugh was a class act about the whole thing and even threw in a group hug.

If the type of luck Rudich and Segall had during their proposal is any indication of what their marriage will be like, I think these kids are going to make it.

UCLA LB Stan McKay proposes to girlfriend after win over Washington (Video)

Stan-McKay-proposalUCLA came away with another big win on Friday night, defeating a very good Washington team by a score of 41-31 in Pasadena. The win itself worth celebrating, but linebacker Stan McKay stole the show after the game by proposing to his girlfriend on the field.

McKay’s Bruins teammates and coaches — Jim Mora included — gathered around the senior to watch him get down on one knee and pop the question. Unfortunately, we could not hear what he said to his lady friend. The important thing is we clearly heard her say “yes” in response, which sent the team into a frenzy.

We have seen players propose to their girlfriends after games in the past and it never seems to get old. Plus, UCLA needed this. Remember that guy who got rejected on the jumbotron at a UCLA basketball game? Yeah, the one who later created a documentary about how he was rejected and dumped because of the size of his, well, you know. At least McKay didn’t end up like him.

Man rejected on UCLA jumbotron marriage proposal dumped for penis size, created film ‘Unhung Hero’

UCLA proposalRemember the video that went viral last year of a man proposing to his girlfriend on the jumbotron at a UCLA basketball game and getting rejected? Many had questions about the authenticity of the video and wondered if it was all staged.

While we still don’t know the answer to that question, what we can tell you is that the video did lead to the development of a documentary.

Comedian Patrick Moote found out the reason for the rejection was his penis size and goes on a “fact-finding journey as he consults porn stars, doctors and anthropologists to learn whether the size of one’s manhood matters” for the documentary, according to a synopsis on IMDB.

The documentary began playing on Showtime recently and is available for viewing on demand. Our buddy Sam who told us about the story says the documentary was only OK. Maybe you’ll enjoy it more. Below is the trailer:

Notre Dame F Jack Cooley proposes to girlfriend during senior banquet

Jack-Cooley-proposalNotre Dame forward Jack Cooley took what was sure to be a memorable night on Wednesday and brought it to another level. During his team’s senior banquet, Cooley concluded his speech by calling his girlfriend Jackie Oberlander to the stage. His teammates, who knew what was coming, had their cell phone cameras rolling.

We all know what he did next. Cooley dropped down on one knee and proposed to Oberlander. She said yes. Junior guard Eric Atkins posted a quick clip of the proposal on Twitter.

Cooley, who was one of four seniors saying goodbye to the Irish, said Oberlander had previously told him that she wanted the engagement to be public and recorded.

“She told me that she wanted it public and recorded,” Cooley told The South Bend Tribune on Wednesday night. “She wanted me to do it around Senior Night (the March 5 game against St. John’s) but I had to focus on the game. I was running out of opportunities to do it in front of crowds like this so I just thought I would do it now.”

He also admitted that he didn’t purchase the engagement ring until last Thursday, but it appears everything went off pretty smoothly. It wasn’t quite as memorable as the most recent proposal we shared with you here on LBS, but anything beats ending up like this guy.

Packers fan stumbles upon Mike McCarthy when he’s about to pop the question, has McCarthy take engagement photo

Packers-fan-proposalA man from Milwaukee named named Tim Schlosser recently planned a very romantic and memorable proposal for his now-fiancee Abigail Kobriger. However, Schlosser’s plan was not executed exactly the way he had envisioned it. Thank goodness for that, because he could have never imagined it going as well as it did.

The couple was strolling down the beach while on their Caribbean vacation when Tim was just about ready to make his move. The only thing he needed was a person that he could ask to take a picture of the couple, as he planned to get down on one knee and ask Abigail to marry him as soon as he could find a kind stranger to play the role of photographer. The next thing he knew, Schlosser spotted Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy from about 100 yards away.

“I know that guy!” Schlosser told TMJ 4 he was thinking when he spotted McCarthy. “I could just tell from the build, from about a 100 yards away and it’s Mike McCarthy.”

Schlosser says he and his girlfriend were both star struck and asked McCarthy to take a couple photos with them. He then asked the coach if he would mind taking a picture of the couple, which Kobriger found to be very bold considering he’s an NFL coach and a celebrity in their home state. That’s when Schlosser made his move.

“Coach hang on, I’ve got one thing to do,” Schlosser recalled asking McCarthy. “I pull out the ring and get down on one knee.”

Schlosser said McCarthy thought the moment was “very cool” and he ended up snapping 30 more photos of the couple to help them capture their special moment. We’ve seen NFL quarterbacks and punters help guys propose to their girlfriends before, but a coincidence like the one Schlosser and Kobriger came across seems too good to be true. Talk about being in the right place at the right time.

Fan proposes to girlfriend using half-court shot attempt at Magic game (Video)

Orlando Magic fan proposalA fan proposed to his girlfriend at Monday’s Orlando Magic-Miami Heat game by using a half-court shot attempt to set her up for the surprise.

The young woman, Elena, prepared to take a half-court shot with $1,000 on the line. As she was setting up to attempt her shot — which went about halfway to the basket — her boyfriend was behind her getting ready to propose. The in-game host told Elena to turn around after her miss, and that’s when she saw her boyfriend down on one knee with a ring in a box extended.

Elena began crying in disbelief, said yes, and the two hugged and kissed.
