I will be the first to admit that this is not the typical sports post, but I’m noticing a disturbing trend recently in football players, managers, coaches etc., are asking their spouse to marry them at the match. Personally, I think something personal such as this should be kept out of a football game. I mean – why do people feel the need for public displays of emotion and affection?
I’m not trying to be a miserable old fart, I’m just trying to be reasonable. Football, for many people, is a way of life, and the last thing they need is nonsensical personal emotional issues being dragged into what is at heart – a very serious game. And before you get all upset – I’m joking! – Football is a family game, and proposing to your fiancé is all about the family. If you can’t propose a football match – where can you propose?
This photo but the head of the post, is of Mississippi State snapper Aaron Feld with his soon-to-be bride Blakeslee Bailey, author he proposed after their NCAA college football game. All power to – I wish them a long and happy life together.
But – when you buy an engagement ring? I don’t know about Aaron, but one of my teammates recently proposed to his fiancée, and he bought his diamond engagement ring here, which saves you a small fortune compared to buying it from a retail store. I don’t know why these things are so expensive in certain stores, at the end of the day is just a piece of metal in a diamond ring, and it’s nice to see an online store such as the one he purchased his from selling these things at a more reasonable price.
Why not switch to pay $6000, for something you can buy for $1500 online? And we are talking about that sort of savings – these things sell for anything from 25 to 60% off of retail prices. You’d be crazy not to take exhaustion – wouldn’t you?
