First, a big-picture thought. The world can be a cold and difficult place. Any love should be celebrated and embraced as a port in life’s stormy sea.
Now, a smaller thought. There are many possible venues for a marriage proposal. A sporting event is one of them. Sneering at an adult’s choice to pop the question in public during a game is small and reeks of snobbishness.
Having said all that, it’s a risky proposition. A Boston Red Sox fan found this out the hard way Sunday night when his proposal did not go as planned at Fenway Park.
The two then allegedly went to the Budweiser Bickering Box to hash out their issues and give away free advertising.
It’s going to be a rough morning for the primaries involved but they can take some small comfort knowing that couples — and the Red Sox themselves — have overcome bigger issues to have a storybook ending at Fenway Park.
