Woman rejects ballpark marriage proposal

You know things are wrong in Astro-land when even a wedding proposal can’t go off smoothly.

During Monday night’s 7-0 loss to the Nationals at Minute Maid Park, a fan failed in his public attempt at asking his girlfriend to marry him, the Houston Chronicle reported on its Web site.

Ouch. You knew it was going to happen eventually.

From the comments, gotta love the optimistic outlook

He never had to hire a divorce attorney AND he got half of her popcorn...sounds like a win win

The woman, wearing a replica Astros jersey, appeared to dump a bag of popcorn on the man before hastily making her way up the stairs amid a chorus of boos, the newspaper reported.


How fast did she get up the stairs? The Astros might be able to use her at second base.

I always root for the woman to say no.

I witnessed this at a Sharks hockey game a couple years ago. They played some game on the ice in the intermission with the chick blindfolded and looking for some item, with the crowd telling her if she was getting warmer or colder. So she found the "item", which turns out to be her boyfriend there to pop the question. I could see her well and she was mortified and couldn't speak. The arena announcer dude just blurted out "She said YES!" and they start walking off the ice. She was so not into it.

With the couple on display on the stadium's jumbotron, the male fan got down on one knee to present the ring. The woman, wearing a replica Astros jersey, appeared to dump a bag of popcorn on the man before hastily making her way up the stairs
Am I the only one to read this as "a performance?"

If she were really opposed to the marriage offer, she'd more likely say "no, I can't" and skedaddle. But tossing a bag of popcorn on her beau's head? Just screams "bogus" to me. I think these yutes just wanted to get some attention.

Are we sure that they were even dating?
   7. John DiFool2 Posted: August 22, 2007 at 04:02 AM (#2494656)
I was at last week's Tuesday's Cubs game, and just such a proposal (via a banner held up in the bleachers) most certainly did work.
   8. base ball chick Posted: August 22, 2007 at 04:11 AM (#2494666)
well there are a lot of marriage proposals at the Box - they do this during kisskam

i've never seen a grrl say no. and i've see a few who looked shocked or uncomfortable but i NEVER saw one that freaking RUDE.

that guy got real lucky he surely did. what a bytch
   9. Toolsy McClutch Posted: August 22, 2007 at 04:39 AM (#2494714)
You have to assume she was trying to play it off like a joke. Imo, you only pull a stunt like that if you're sure of the answer. Of course, imo, you only ask that type of question when you're sure of the answer... anywhere.

Not to be a traitor to my gender....but are guys really that stupid? There's about 1/1,000 girls who would want to be proposed to at a sporting event. Why not go to a nice restaurant? Or to the place of your first date? Or to the top of the Empire State Building? That is...unless you score a game winning TD in the Fiesta Bowl and your gf is a cheerleader on the field...that one gets a pass.

Some lame guys are attention whores, who probably don't have much experience with women.
   13. McCoy Posted: August 22, 2007 at 04:46 AM (#2494726)
Ah yes I remember my first proposal. I did it to win a bet, looking back it wasn't the smartest reason to do it.
   14. MSI Posted: August 22, 2007 at 04:46 AM (#2494728)
There are some girls that really like baseball and would want to be proposed like that. Maybe all the proposals you see at a park are those ones...

Well she was wearing an Astro's jersey so she might be one of those women who actually like baseball. I'm sure it is thousands of Packer-girls dreams to get proposed to at Lambeau field.

Except one...at least.
   17. base ball chick Posted: August 22, 2007 at 05:04 AM (#2494735)
well, the female she WAS in an astros jersey so i would think she has probably seen a game before and like i said i would bet that some guy proposes every 3 or 4 games. so i mean a guy might could see how she reacts to that. some grrrls want an entire stadium cheering for you cuz you finally hooked the suckah.

but you know she STILL didn't have to be rude like that. you could smile and stuff then hand him back the ring afterward. but the guy got a bigger hand than any of the players so that's saying SOMEthing

damm it is hard to believe that just 2 years ago my stros were a hot team and went to the WS.

This happened at an Expos game I attended. The lede for the next day's recap began something like "The Braves beat Montreal 6-2, but at least the Expos weren't the biggest losers at Olympic Stadium..."
   19. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: August 22, 2007 at 05:17 AM (#2494739)
I think that even if a woman were to reject a marriage proposal, she'd at least nod and smile for the 40,000 people and then explain to the guy afterward that she isn't going to marry him after all. At least most women would do that. Not this one, apparently.
   20. SuperGrover Posted: August 22, 2007 at 05:22 AM (#2494740)
Clearly a hoax unless the guy is deranged.
   21. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: August 22, 2007 at 05:24 AM (#2494741)
When I ask a girl on a date, I generally try to do it privately. But there was one time when I was dumb enough to tell a friend that I thought I could get a date with this one girl in our dorm. So of course the next day when he sees said girl he calls me down basically forcing me to ask her out in front of about half a dozen other guys. At the time she said sure but told me later that she didn't want to after all but that she was too intimidated by the crowd to say no.
   22. Lassus Posted: August 22, 2007 at 05:39 AM (#2494746)
Yeah, I'm gonna side with the girl on this one. And if this couple seems too stupid to be real, well, er, maybe you haven't been paying attention to, um, humans too long.
   23. Zach Posted: August 22, 2007 at 05:42 AM (#2494748)
I'm still waiting for Option J.
   24. base ball chick Posted: August 22, 2007 at 05:43 AM (#2494750)
they talked about it again on the post game show tonight and i guess all the ushers and beer guys thought she was for real. she ran up the aisles and out of the stadium. kind of a lot for a hoax.

so lassus,
you gonna side with the girl WHY?
you into rudeness like MHS
   25. Lassus Posted: August 22, 2007 at 05:56 AM (#2494754)
Because asking a woman - asking anyone - to make a personal decision like that in public in front of a screaming crowd is far more rude than tossing popcorn.

So the answer to your question is a definite no. I just don't think you have a good understanding of what's actually rude.

And I'll thank you not to compare me to MNS.
   26. Walt Davis Posted: August 22, 2007 at 05:59 AM (#2494755)
Barring more info, I'll side with the woman.

It's not a question you ask without knowing the answer.
It's not a question you ask in front of 20,000 strangers unless (a) you know the answer and (b) you know she'll like being asked that way.
It's not a question you ask in an atmosphere that makes it extra difficult for the woman to say no cuz, well, that's creepy.
For all we know, he asked her last week and she said no ... and now here the jackass is doing it again ... in front of 20,000 strangers in an atmosphere that makes it extra difficult for her to say no.

Anyway, if real, the popcorn toss says to me that this guy was not a loveable, lovesick sap. Especially if it was buttered or cheesy or caramel pop corn!

It would be a nice save to this thread if we segwayed :) into recollections of primate proposals:

My wife and I had been dating for 4 1/2 years. We'd done long-distance of various lengths for just over three of those years. I was always sure that I was the kind of guy to get asked, and under normal conditions she was the one to ask, so I figured it would just go that way.

But at the time, she was finishing a really tough year of med school prep, her mom was deathly ill and we had decided that whereever she got in, I would go with her and teach there. So it was a logical time, but I think she was too taxed to ask.

So her sister starts dropping hints that my wife thought it was time. I thought it was tacky, but I felt she was right. I didn't get a ring because she thinks stereotypical rings are stupid.

So I found this great jeweler downstate in Champaign, talked to him about us designing rings together with him, got his card, wrote a long love letter/proposal, and then when we went out on a snowy, windy day took the Recreation area stop on LSD (that's LSD, not acid).

We walked along the lake--it was an angry sea day and the waves and wind were deafening. Wearing my jacket, I enveloped her in it, and got her to put her hands in the pockets, and she drew out the card.

She mouthed the word, "No!" and threw me in the lake, and I lost three of my toes to frostbite/hypothermia.

Ok, the last part is a lie, but I realized that these stories are probably a lot less interesting to people not related to the storyteller.

In the end, I told her about her sister's urging, and she was like, "No, we never talked about it and I wasn't really thinking about marriage right now because things are so crazy right now...but I'm really thankful that it happened now, even though I guess my sister is a manipulative little brat."

I think the trouble started when Candyce looked up at the Jumbotron and read the question WILL YOU MARRY ME KAYLEE?
   30. bob gee Posted: August 22, 2007 at 11:35 AM (#2494798)
my wife and i discussed this once, why people would do it, etc.. #26 is what we came up with...if you care about the other person's feelings, you damn well KNOW what the answer is.

AND...that they'd not be creeped out in front of zillions of people. AND that they'd find the setting (concert, ballgame, etc.) incredibly romantic for the pair of them.

my whole setup was relatively simple...we were living together (heaven forbid!) and i knew i'd ask eventually. she had given an idea of what she'd want for a ring (realistic) in terms of shape, color, etc. on a paper. i worked in midtown nyc, a friend knew someone in the diamond district, we went over lunch, then went back a few days later with a wad of cash. got the 'appraisal' next door with their security guard in tow, made the purchase.

some point in the next week or two, we were in hoboken in a park overlooking the hudson river, i pretended to stumble, she sat down on a bench, and i asked. she was more surprised i had called up her folks and asked her dad (earlier in the day) than anything.

Maybe she dumped the popcorn on him because he took it out.

If it was a put-on, it was all for naught--they didn't even get their names in the papers.
   36. Pops Freshenmeyer Posted: August 22, 2007 at 12:37 PM (#2494818)
Back in high school, a friend of mine 'proposed' to a girl we knew while she was at work. He used his keyring as a prop. The customers started cheering and she sprinted out of the room crying.

BTW, the pressure people put on the public proposee to say yes is bizzarly selfish.
   37. TerpNats Posted: August 22, 2007 at 12:44 PM (#2494823)
Bob Carpenter of the visiting Nationals' broadcast crew commented on it when it happened, and Don Sutton wasn't sure whether or not it was a put-on.

In the late eighties, when Carpenter was doing Texas Rangers games on HSE, someone made a proposal at old Arlington Stadium one Sunday night. Such was the state of the Rangers in those days that HSE asked its viewers to phone in and press 1 for "yes, she should accept," or 2 for "no, she shouldn't." I recall that "yes" won...but not by much.

I wonder if something like this has been used in a movie. I can imagine that if jumbotrons/kisscams and the like had been around 70 years ago, you might have seen a film scene where Carole Lombard stormed out of the Polo Grounds, spurning Robert Montgomery or Fred MacMurray's proposal.
   38. Win one for Agrippa (haplo53) Posted: August 22, 2007 at 12:46 PM (#2494825)
My wife told me many times when we were dating not to propose at a sporting event.
   39. Paul D(uda) Posted: August 22, 2007 at 01:33 PM (#2494846)
There's a good clip on Youtube of NBA proposal, where the guy pops out of a box to propose, and his gf runs off crying.
   40. Never Give an Inge (Dave) Posted: August 22, 2007 at 01:44 PM (#2494852)
My wife told me many times when we were dating not to propose at a sporting event.

My girlfriend is a baseball fan and loves going to games (she taught me how to keep score)...but she's also made it very clear that if I propose at a game, I'll be lucky if the worst thing that happens is having popcorn dumped on me.
   41. Cowboy Popup Posted: August 22, 2007 at 01:57 PM (#2494865)
I think Walt nails it in 26, especially that last part about him asking her before.

This exact scene happened in Kansas City, except it was April 1 and they later revealed it was an April Fool's stunt. I would guess this was a stunt too.

My wife was absolutely convinced I was going to propose at Kauffman Stadium. Fortunately for her, I didn't.

Note to self: When planning ballpark marriage proposal, be sure to bring a spare girl, in case the primary target declines.
   44. Guapo Posted: August 22, 2007 at 02:23 PM (#2494887)
Clearly a stunt set up by the team.
   45. simpleton & childlike gef the talking mongoose Posted: August 22, 2007 at 02:25 PM (#2494888)
would bet that some guy proposes every 3 or 4 games.


You'd think he'd get the message by now, wouldn't you? I assume he's at least proposing to different women ...
   46. Loren F. Posted: August 22, 2007 at 02:58 PM (#2494936)
Never understood why you'd want the proposal to be a surprise. Most regular couples discuss and plan together before buying a car, and this is a much bigger decision... I suppose making it a bit of a surprise can be romantic, if you know your intended very well and the proposal is customized, but the generic 'surprise' can come off as trying to be a TV show. In my relationship, we consider gifts and experiences that reflect genuine knowledge of the other person as the most romantic, not generic displays that have been scripted by Hallmark. YMMV.
   47. bob gee Posted: August 22, 2007 at 03:01 PM (#2494940)
heh heh skipper...

actually, a few blocks away from elysian, down on 4th street.

repoz could probably link up some type of cool outro for that (with the feelies or someone), but i'm nowhere near as witty.

retro-shiette is 100% convinced the couple staged it to get a rise out of people.
   49. Craig in MN Posted: August 22, 2007 at 03:11 PM (#2494953)
This is how to stage a proper public proposal. Lots of creativity and planning, and no popcorn.
   50. JRVJ (formerly Delta Socrates) Posted: August 22, 2007 at 03:16 PM (#2494962)
You know, I never actually proposed to my wife.

It's weird, because even though I was very happy and definitely had my eye set on marrying her (we'd even talked about it), we'd only being going out for about 6 months at the time.

So what happened is that she let it slip to a close relative of hers that we were planning on getting married at a social event. Well, that was it, there's nothing you can control less in this world than a Latin American woman with juicy gossip, so I took the reins of the situation and "asked for her hand" to her parents the next day (i.e., I did damage control ASAP).

5 1/2 years and 2 kids later, I'm reasonably happy (except for the nagging that I guess comes from most wives, but what can you do, eh?).
   51. Boots Day Posted: August 22, 2007 at 03:17 PM (#2494963)
I proposed to my wife about two hours before the first game of the 1987 World Series. Fortunately, we got all of the business taken care of in plenty of time.

> Most regular couples discuss and plan together before buying a car, and this is a much bigger

Not very romantic but my marriage "discussion" resembled a discussion about buying a house. Been married 9 years now though we've been through 4 houses...
   53. Toolsy McClutch Posted: August 22, 2007 at 05:41 PM (#2495151)
I proposed to my wife naked in our basement appartment, just moments after she/we had decided to keep the unborn child she was carrying. Romantic it was not, but I still got down on one knee. Six years down the road, we've just decided to have another child (I figure we can't get the second one as wrong as the first).

My wife and son are the best things going, imo. Except for the occiasional nag, which I think is mandated by law.
   54. base ball chick Posted: August 22, 2007 at 06:23 PM (#2495240)
so boys it's like this -

if you got NO idea how your woman would deal with being proposed to at a ballpark then you do NOT know her enough to get married.

although i do gotta admit us grrrls WILL surprise yall
hehhehheh

and delta darling boy,

if your wife stops nagging you it mean she don't love you no more. you do NOT wanna hear FINE or WHATEVER from your woman. in ANY language

"there's nothing you can control less in this world than a Latin American woman any woman with juicy gossip" unless it's a MAN with juicy gossip

there
fixed that for you
   55. Slinger Francisco Barrios (Dr. Memory) Posted: August 22, 2007 at 08:28 PM (#2495354)
if your wife stops nagging you it mean she don't love you no more.

Whether that is in fact true would depend on the woman. (Mine knows me well enough not to nag, and I know her well enough to know whether it would be important enough to be nagged about.)
   56. Biscuit_pants Posted: August 22, 2007 at 09:40 PM (#2495409)
It's not a question you ask in front of 20,000 strangers
Just to clarify, you’re saying it IS ok to ask her at a Pirates game?
Most regular couples discuss and plan together before buying a car, and this is a much bigger decision
I don't know a car lasts on average almost 10 years.

You know, I never actually proposed to my wife.

It's weird, because even though I was very happy and definitely had my eye set on marrying her (we'd even talked about it), we'd only being going out for about 6 months at the time.
This is actually very close to how mine would start off. It was not romantic really but hey we were on our way to Niagara Falls, but going with a couple of friends this was going to be the most private moment we had. We were only dating for 4 months but I knew after like two weeks. We have been together for 11 years and have 3 kids.

And if any of my kids pull a stunt like this I'll kill them :)

Like others in this thread, ours was more similar to buying a house than asking at the top of Eiffel tower. But, it is important to ask formally, and I did it by waking her up at 3 am and asking her. She said yes, and then we went back to sleep.
   60. McCoy Posted: August 22, 2007 at 11:09 PM (#2495465)
My fiance and I had discussed it back in June or so that we should get married, it was June 12th to be exact. But it was a private thing between us and we never announced it to anybody. Then in early December I made a bet with her that she couldn't stop drinking for a week (life in the biz I guess). While the week of dryness was going on I was out on the town looking for Christmas presents and I decided what the hell and bought an engagement ring. On the very last night of supposed dryness I put a bottle of her favorite sparkler on the coffee table, brachetto d'acqui, opened it and poured her a glass and offered her some. She declined, now while all this was going on I was down on one knee, so when she declined the drink I said "well will you have a glass if I give you this?". Then I presented the ring, she started crying and all and she got to make it public. Needless to say I won the bet but lost the war on that one.

I think I'll see how much it costs to do something like this at Kauffman Stadium. I've got a first date for Saturday's game, and its probably good to see how the girl can handle pressure early.
