Did your winter break not go exactly as planned?
Well imagine being this UCLA fan that proposed to his girlfriend on Dec. 23 while the Bruins were taking on Richmond at the L.A. Sports Arena (Pauley Pavilion is under renovation this season) only to get rejected.
When it was time for “Mistletoe Cam” at the game, the fan took the microphone, said “I knew I was going to do this the first day I met you” and got on one knee to pop the question. Apparently the feeling wasn’t mutual, as the girl headed for the exits and left the fan and rest of the arena in stunned silence.
For the conspiracy theorists out there, UCLA denied that this was a staged event although the couple may have pulled the prank themselves.
If not, fortunately the attendance was abysmal for the forgettable game that UCLA won, 71-63. The bad news? It’s now on the internet.
