Cam Newton helps Air Force serviceman propose to girlfriend over phone

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was kind enough to join Kiss 95.1 in Charlotte on Wednesday morning to help one of our country’s servicemen take the next step in his life.

A caller named Brian, who serves in the US Air Force and is currently stationed in New Mexico, proposed to his girlfriend over the phone. Typically the over-the-phone proposal is frowned upon, but when you’re serving in the military and get an NFL quarterback to help you pop the question it’s completely acceptable. Newton joined Brian on the line while hosts Drex and Maney got his girlfriend Kim on the phone.

Kim was told that Newton was on the line, which seemed to completely overwhelm her as she’s obviously a huge fan. The Panthers quarterback then informed her that Brian has something he would like to ask her, and the conversation went something like this.

“From the moment I met you, I knew that I loved you, and I knew that I wanted to love you for the rest of my life,” Brian told Kim. “I know when you say something over and over again, it can lose meaning, but every time I say I love you, I mean it, and I want you to be my wife. I want you to marry me.”

Kim eventually said “yes,” but her immediate response after Brian’s proposal was priceless.

“I can’t believe Cam Newton is on the phone,” she said.

Talk about having a lot to take in at once. I recommend listening to the entire audio clip, which can be heard here. This is not the first time an NFL player has helped a fan propose to his girlfriend, but it just may be the most entertaining reaction we have seen.

Landry Fields engaged to model girlfriend Elaine Alden, proposed in unique way

Landry-Fields-Elaine-Alden-proposal

Landry Fields has one of the better-looking girlfriends in all of professional sports, so it makes perfect sense that he has decided to ask Elaine Alden to be his wife. We first caught wind that the Toronto Raptors forward and stunning model were dating last summer, and it appears that Fields popped the question earlier this week.

As you can see from the photo above that Alden shared on Instagram, Fields got creative. He put together a four-photo slideshow with him holding up signs that spelled out “Will you marry me?” Obviously, Alden said yes.

Definitely one of the more unique ideas we have seen. We’re not going to say it beats either of these proposals, but it certainly kicks the crap out of Chad Ochocinco’s infamous video game debacle.

PS: Decent-sized rock.

Couple got engaged in street during Ravens fans Super Bowl celebration (Video)

Ravens-fan-Super-Bowl-proposalSunday night was a special night for Baltimore Ravens fans, many of who filled the streets of Baltimore to celebrate their team’s Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers. As if winning a championship isn’t thrilling enough, one fan was captured on camera making the celebration an even more memorable experience.

As you can see at the 38-second mark of the video above that was posted on Reddit, a fan was recording some of the festivities when he came across a man who was down on one knee proposing to his girlfriend. Judging by her reaction, it’s safe to say the answer was yes.

My question is this: was this dude proposing after the game win or lose? I’m guessing he had some sort of alternate proposal plan in place. If his girlfriend is a big Ravens fan and he asked her to marry him after a Super Bowl loss, there’s a good chance he would have ended up like this guy.

Iowa State C Anna Prins’ boyfriend proposes to her on court after game (Video)

Anna-Prins-proposalThe Iowa State women’s basketball team came away with a comfortable 86-47 win over Alabama State on Sunday, but center Anna Prins was left celebrating more than just a blowout victory. After the game, Iowa State head coach Bill Fennelly led a young man named Ryan De Hamer out onto the court. Considering De Hamer is Prins’ boyfriend, she probably had a hunch about what was going to happen next.

With a microphone in-hand, De Hamer got down on one knee at center court and proposed to the 6-foot-7 senior. She said yes.

“I was crying,” Prins told the Ames Gazette. “I couldn’t have asked for a better place, just with all the people that were involved: Coach (Bill Fennelly), my team, the fans in Hilton, my family was there. Pretty special.”

Redskins cheerleader gets engaged before kickoff against Cowboys (Picture)

Redskins-cheerleader-proposal

Sunday night ended up being a tremendous night for Washington Redskins fans, as their team defeated the division rival Dallas Cowboys to clinch the NFC East title and a playoff berth. For one Redskins cheerleader, the victory may not have been the highlight of the evening.

As you can see from the photo above that ABC 2 in Annapolis’ Don Harrison passed along, a Washington cheerleader’s boyfriend proposed to her on the sidelines before kickoff. She said yes. It was obviously a bold move from her boyfriend. Depending on her viewpoint, he either gave her a welcome distraction from the ongoing buzz at FedEx Field or one more thing to think about before the most important home game of the season.

In any event, we’ll give the gentleman somewhere between a B+ and an A- for the effort. It may not beat a proposal on a medal stand, but it certainly tops being rejected in from of an arena full of people.

Steve Weatherford helps Giants fan propose to his girlfriend

Thanks in part to punter Steve Weatherford, a couple of New York Giants fans have a wedding to plan. After the G-Men concluded their practice on Sunday, Weatherford walked off the field and handed a man named Bryan Wheeler what appeared to be a souvenir. As you can see above, the souvenir had an important message on it and Wheeler handed it off to his girlfriend, Jacklene Murt.

“I thought it went great, she said yes,” Weatherford explained on Monday according to the Giants website. “I don’t know if I’ll get invited to the wedding or not. It was fun. It was very flattering to be requested to do that. It was a lot of fun.

“I think he contacted our community relations people and requested that the craziest guy on the team help him out. I don’t think he had to look too far down the roster…Obviously whenever you get to do something like that, it’s flattering because it makes you realize how important you are to a lot of people. The guy hopefully, cross your fingers, is only going to get married once, and I was the one to help him get engaged.”

We here at LBS are glad the lovely lady said yes. As we’ve shown you in the past, there’s nothing worse than a rejected proposal in public.

Chad Ochocinco proposed to Evelyn Lozada while playing a video game

So Chad Johnson Ochocinco is getting married to model Evelyn Lozada next week and some details were spilled by the fiancee about how the proposal went down. Said the bride to be on V-103 with Egypt:

“I wish I had a really romantic story to tell you, but it’s not so romantic. A jeweler came to the house, had a few rings, he had my ring in a separate box. I, of course, chose that one. [Chad] had a headset on and he was like, ‘You like it?’ and I was like, ‘Yep’ and I put it on and he goes, ‘Okay cool,’ and he started playing Call of Duty.”

Cassanova Cinco! Not sure what’s worse than being rejected after one of the most important moments in your life for a video game. Maybe being ignored for another woman? No, because that would at least make Ochocinco look human. Ignoring her for a video game makes him seem more soulless than a Dracula that eats puppies for fun.
