A Fenway Park proposal is probably a dream scenario for many young men and women in Boston. A nice afternoon at the ballpark watching the Red Sox, eating a few Fenway Franks … and then you get down on one knee and bust out that shiny ring.
Or, well, you could propose like this guy. Check out the ultimate caricature of a bad ballpark proposal, courtsey of MLB.com:
I, uh, think she said yes? She looked happy, right?
Whatever gets the job done applies here, but there are a couple of things this guy could have done to make this moment a little less … bizarre.
For starters, he definitely should have said something to his potential fiancé instead of just pointing at the big screen and slowly fumbling the ring out of his pocket. Getting down on one knee is a pretty common courtesy, too.
But when going down the path of a ridiculously awkward and public proposal, I guess he had to go all-out.
