A Warning To Anyone Who Is Thinking About Publicly Proposing Marriage At A Damn Baseball Game

By Kelly Conaboy / August 6, 2013 - 12:30 pm

Does your significant other love baseball? Is baseball a mutual hobby or interest or otherwise something that you and your significant other share? Is it a mutual hobby or interest or otherwise something that you and your significant other share that has reached a significantly high level of meaning in your relationship? That is, it’s not just something you both kind of like, rather it is something you both grew up loving, something that has brought each of you comfort in times of sadness, and something that has subsequently brought you closer together as a couple? Have you been together long enough that you are reasonably sure that your significant other will say “yes” when you propose to him or her? Have you talked to your significant other about the idea of proposing to him or her at a baseball game? Have you at least talked to your significant other about the idea of other people proposing to their significant others at baseball games? Did your significant other react well to this idea, saying something along the lines of, “Yes, I love it when people get publicly engaged at baseball games. Being put on the spot in front of a stadium full of people, plus the people who are possibly watching at home if this is a game that is on TV, plus the people who might later watch it on the Internet, about one of the biggest decisions I will make in my life, a decision that you have thought about, planned, and prepared for, has always been a dream of mine. I would love to get publicly engaged at a baseball game.” Has your significant other been reasonably honest about their ability to handle pressure in the past, and are you sure you know when they are and are not being sarcastic? Are you sure you want to marry this person?! If you answered “no” or “I don’t know” to any of the above questions: DO NOT PROPOSE TO YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER ON THE FIELD OF A BASEBALL GAME, YOU DUMMY.

There is of course a possibility that this is fake, but it would still serve as a good warning. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. DO NOT. (Via NYDaily.)
