While the Sox are losing, I'm winning.
I popped the question last night to my girlfriend of two-plus years, Alisha. And when I do things, I go big or go home. That's why I asked her in front of 5,000 people.
I staged it at the Big & Rich concert last night in Gilford, NH. Her seat number was "randomly" called to take part in the Cash Vault, which was basically a phone booth that flew money in the air.
While she answered questions from Vito (the man who helped set this whole thing up), I snuck up next to her, was given the mic and put it out there. She immedietly turned red and began to cry.
I did my job and she, of course, accepted.
Twenty-five hours later, I'm still in shock. I had so many emotions that were and still are rushing through my body that I still can't explain them. All I know is that I'm a very happy man.
I'm an engaged man now. And even though this engagement will be a long one (we're waiting until we're done with college), it was the greatest moment in my life.
Thanks for listening -- I just had to let everybody know that. Oh! Go Sox!
