    Turned Down at an Astros Game

    Not sure if this was posted yet, I didn't see it anywhere.

    Can you imagine getting turned down in front of a few thousand people? Wonder what he had to pay to get it up on the board?

    Re: Turned Down at an Astros Game

    I assume it was fake. I think someone staged a fake engagment refusal at an NBA game that got a lot of press. I believe it's on youtube but haven't checked.

    Re: Turned Down at an Astros Game

    This is why you don't do proposals at the ballpark.

    I quote the recent Bud Light radio commercial:

    "We salute you, Mr. Stadium Proposal Guy. You combine the three things you love most in this world: Your girlfriend; your team; AND YOUR NEED FOR LOTS AND LOTS OF ATTENTION..."

    The sad thing is, the first time I heard that commercial, I predicted what that line was going to be


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    I listened to Out of Bounds while driving for work yesterday and they had the Astros' manager on and they talked about it. He said it costs $1,000 to do something like that.

    It could be real but as someone else mentioned, it's probably a publicity stunt.

    Didn't even think of the fake thing, I hadn't heard about the deal with the NBA team. In this day and age, it probably was fake and it is the start of a new reality show.
