To all my guys out there, let me give a word of advice:
Never fake propose to your longtime girlfriend… it’s one of the Seven Deadly Sins in the book of Woman, and could possibly result in a breakup.
I’ll never forget when my buddy had the great idea to tell his girlfriend of three years and her family that he had some “big news” to share with them, and they were gonna all meet up at her place so he could share the news.
Except, it was all a joke, as he got a fake tattoo with her name on it, and thought it would be “hilarious” to show it off to her family.
Needless to say, the joke completely backfired, and he nearly got banished from the family (don’t worry, she forgave him and they’re married now).
That’s the first thing that comes to mind when I watch this video.
At a recent Toronto Blue Jays game, video footage shows a guy and his girl walking down to their seats. He gives her a kiss, and proceeds to get on one knee, and you see her face light up like a Christmas tree.
He pulls out a ring box, and it looks like things are getting real…
Except, it wasn’t an actual ring. It was a Ring Pop…
Boy, you could see the smoke coming out of her ears.
She slaps him, and tosses her drink all over him as she storms off in fury.
Is it real? With the internet these days, you never know what’s real and what’s a ploy for internet clout, but either way, looks like he took a real slap.
Tim McGraw Says He Proposed To Faith Hill In A Trailer At A Country Festival
I mean, I feel like this beats the hell out of a sporting event proposal…
Tim McGraw stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon recently, and told the story of the time he proposed to his wife, the one and only Faith Hill.
Though, it wasn’t nearly as elaborate or over-the-top as one might expect for two of biggest superstars in country music.
Apparently, it happened in a trailer in the middle of nowhere:
“We were playing, I wanna say it was Montana, it was somewhere in the middle of nowhere. We had this big festival and we had been touring together for a little while.
Apropos for a country music concert, we had trailer houses for our dressing rooms.”
They had been dating and out on the road together for a while, and Tim had already asked Faith a few times to marry him, but she never took it that seriously.
Tim said this time was different, though:
“We were doing this big festival, and we were in this trailer house, and I had like my mirror and my road case and everything set up, and I asked Faith, I said, this was right before I went on stage, I said ‘You know, I want you to be my wife.’
She goes, ‘Well you’ve asked me that several times.’ This time I’m serious.
We’re in a trailer, she goes, ‘You’re asking me to marry you at a country music festival in a trailer park?'”
Of course, that’s a very fair response in Faith’s defense, because I don’t know many girls who grow up dreaming about getting proposed to in a trailer…
But regardless of the simplicity of the moment (which actually sounds like a relief compared to the wild productions proposals have become in the age of Instagram and social media), Faith, of course, said yes:
“And I said, ‘Yes ma’am, I am. You’re from Mississippi, I’m from Louisiana, it seems pretty appropriate.’
And then when I came back off stage, she had written in lipstick, ‘Yes, I’m gonna be your wife.’ And I still have the mirror. I still have that mirror.”
There might not have been a more electric time in youth sports that coach pitch baseball.
A few of the players are out there because their parents wanted them to in an effort to keep them from playing video games and Pokémon all day, others are out there trying to become the next MLB superstar, and the rest are stuck somewhere in the middle…
All while still trying to perfect the “alligator catch” (the real ones know what I’m talking about).
With that being said, Austin Bramley and Chad Hunt, who appear to be parents of a couple kids on the Sioux Falls, South Dakota eight and under coach pitch team, decided to hot mic a couple of kids to help us relive the glory days and simpler times.
Needless to say, it exceeded expectations by a million.
We hear all of the roasts, from:
“Pitchers gotta big butt!” (I’m impressed with the Rookie of the Year quote here)
Some sick one liners:
“It’s raining tacos from the sky! Nom, nom, nom. So yummy, in my belly.”
One kid was absolutely ruthless to another by saying:
“Haha your mom left you.”
And then, the most wholesome part of all, when of the players asks another:
“Are you playing at the playground today?”
Trust me, this is not something you’re gonna wanna miss. I mean, why are kids across the country not mic’d up in every league? This is quality entertainment.
