The Kansas City Chiefs weren’t the only ones to win at Frankfurt Stadium on Sunday, as a fan successfully proposed to his girlfriend during the game.
A Kansas City fan decided the Chiefs-Dolphins in Germany was the ideal setting to propose to his girlfriend. The moment was captured and posted by the NFL on X (formerly Twitter).
The fan had one knee on the turf and both hands on the ring in front of the crowd of more than 42,000. Moved to tears, his girlfriend nodded enthusiastically and said ‘yes’.
But in a hilarious turn of events, the fan stood up and celebrated by hugging the Chiefs’ wolf mascot instead of putting the ring on his fiancée. The bride-to-be cried with joy as the crowd cheered and Bruno Mars’ “Marry You” played over the sound system.
‘We have a proposal from Frankfurt!’ the NFL caption.
