Trust me, your girlfriend is thinking about a different kind of ring this Super Bowl Season! So in honor of all of the women (or men) hoping to get engaged this year, we put together a list of a few of our all time favorite sports proposals to help inspire you to get moving and start proposing!
The Mascot and the Cheerleader
No one can forget the proposal above. The Chicago Bulls mascot was actually an impostor at a game in 2013. The cheerleader’s boyfriend dressed up in the costume to surprise her during a dance routine. The cutest couple on the court put on quite the show, with the mascot proposing in front of the entire crowd, all pre-planned with the Bulls and cheerleading team. Super thoughtful and so very creative!
Two Big Wins
The Fiesta Bowl of 2007 turned out to be an extremely close game, with it going into overtime. Shortly after winning that game, Bronco’s player Ian Johnson proposed to his cheerleader girlfriend on the field while celebrating with the team and reporters. After such a high-adrenaline game, he took the best night of their lives to whole new level. Read all about it here.
The Coney Island Competition
A slightly different type of sport, but a sport nonetheless, Joey Chestnut, the long-time champion of Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, proposed to his girlfriend right before 2014’s competition. While she was on stage, he walked up behind her, grabbed the microphone, and proposed. The sheer surprise and happiness on her face mixed with the loud cheers from the crowd make this a true success. Read about it here.
