From this AP News story:
There was a lot riding on Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals for Mighty Ducks fan Christina SerVoss, and not all of it was on the ice.
Her longtime boyfriend Steve De Sena said he would ask for her hand in marriage if the Ducks won the Stanley Cup. After the team lost 3-0 to the New Jersey Devils on Monday night, it looked like another fairy tale might not have a happy ending.
But with a national television audience watching the post-game festivities, De Sena got on one knee and proposed to a tearful SerVoss. She said yes. The couple have known each other for seven years and dated for five. De Sena was a chronic procrastinator but he told SerVoss before the playoffs that if the Ducks should win the Stanley Cup, he would marry her.
With the Ducks trailing the Devils on Monday, it appeared that SerVoss, 30, might not get what she wanted. What she didn’t know was that De Sena had already made up his mind.
“I think I decided this in Game 3,” De Sena said. “I just knew it was the time; I knew it was right.”
If you don’t know if it is right after 5 years, what does a stupid hockey game have to do with one of the most important decisions of your life? Maybe there is a reason this guy had to invent this whole stupid charade just to get up the guts to propose: He doesn’t really want to marry this woman. It would probably be more thoughtful of him to just fess up to this fact and part ways.
It is nice to be reminded occasionally of the crap women put up with. What could be so special about this guy that this lady would allow this kind of media circus into her life? Maybe they’re both just media whores…
This is unfortunately a union doomed by the dimwitery of the groom to be. $10 bucks says they will call it off or be divorced within a year.
