I'm just saying it looks more for social media than romantic. But, maybe they were out with friends who were in on the proposal.  Great picture

 

That said, not everything has to be shared

true. It seemed kinda like an advertisement for Kay Jewelers with the Kay Jewelers tag at the top of the pictures. I hope it wasn’t but you never know.

That's awesome!  Where are they?  Is that the canal?

 

I'm happy for them.  She seems great.

 

I hope he's a Colt for a long time, and I hope their marriage lasts many times longer!  :cheers:

Yeah, I think it's the canal.  I see Patty Mac in the background.

A lot of people hire photographers or get friends to take videos or pictures of this moment. But who cares? It’s none of our business how they took said picture. 


 

congrats to the both of them.

I definitely get that. I don't share much of anything on social media, but I had my brother and his girlfriend with us when I proposed. It was nice to have a picture of the moment and honestly, having them there made it more casual, so she didn't suspect a thing. I don't think it was any less romantic and since my brother's g/f made the picture into an xmas ornament (I proposed in early Dec), we get to be reminded of that moment year after year when we put up the tree. :)

 

I'd imagine for a couple that puts a lot of their personal lives out in the open via social media and kind of chronicles their lives on YT, it's just normal. I'm not a very public person, but I'm also not a pro athlete. lol

I feel like that's different.

 

My son in law proposed on xmas at our house.  He had talked to everyone in the family first.  So, we all knew.

He cut out the inside of a book and put the ring in it and wrapped it as an xmas gift.

 

His son knew and video taped it.

 

Neither of them were looking their best.  When she first opened the book, the ring popped out and a lot of the video is of them looking for the ring in the mess of wrapping paper on the floor.

 

It was an imperfect moment shared with family but not social media.

 

I feel like too many people are focused too much on projecting a perfect persona on social media.  Feels shallow to me.

Yeah, I can understand that. I proposed to my wife in the Indianapolis Art Museum Gardens. I was peaceful, intimate and just the two of us. While there are no pictures of the event, we both can vividly remember everything. 

 

We had been dating for over 5 years at that point, so she knew it was coming. Instead of trying to surprise her, I decided to make it the best possible moment. 

 

Your thoughts on social media align with my own. It's honestly not real life. It's just a snapshot of things looking perfect, but it doesn't capture what is truly going on.

It was. YouTubers  get what is called sponsorships. He was most likely given the ring at no cost for the post on instagram  and most likely youtube.

The more I think about this, I'm guessing the actual proposal must have happened elsewhere and this is just more of an engagement photo shoot. I think they're recreating a 'perfect proposal'

 

I mean, nobody goes to the park dressed to the 9s with a professional photographer for a surprise proposal

I think this instagram thing causes a lot of people to have anxiety......thinking everyone else's lives are perfect.

 

I've also seen people getting hurt trying to get the perfect shot.

 

I saw a proposal at winter lights last year.  We were watching the lights at the Lilly house and a guy takes his girl friend by the hand and leads her out onto the lawn with the light show, gets down on one knee and proposes

 

The whole crowd cheered.  It was V Romantic

That's very much what I did. We went to the botanical gardens in Richmond, VA (about an hour from us) for their holiday lights. Their theme was scenes from different fables and stories. The Giving Tree is one of her favorites and I proposed under the lit up "Giving Tree". I waited until there were minimal people around, because she's not a huge "spectacle" person, and it definitely made her suspicious that we were just kind of hanging out around the tree...lol. We got to it way sooner than I realized and because I waiting so long, we moved on. Luckily, my brother's g/f sneakily navigated us back to it later to give me another chance. :D

It’s also possible he just got a lump sum and paid for the ring himself. YouTubers and popular Instagram people can make a ton of money doing this. Some popular YouTubers can make like 10k just from mentioning a product in their videos and on IG. I will bet this was just a picture to use for the ad on instagram and that wasn’t actually the moment.

Yeah. I guess I wouldn't have went that route for an engagement but it seems like they care very much so about their youtube reputation. That wouldn't be me but not knocking what they do.

You wouldn't take advantage of getting a little reward for the work you put in? 

 

I think it's tacky to come up with a plan to monetize your engagement through advertising. It doesn't really seem 100% genuine and more of a commercial/watermark slap on it all. That's my opinion though.

    • I get they're from one of the biggest TV markets in the country, but you knew that game was going to be a non-competitive snoozefest before it even started. I generally watch every Sunday Night game available, but I can tell you that both Sunday Night games that I largely tuned out of involved Packers-Bears contests (I wanna say there was a game in 2013 or 2014 where the Packers dropped 50+ on the Bears on Sunday Night and you could feel it was going to happen before the game even started).
    • I apologize for today guys. At least you whipped them the first time you played them in Tennessee but lost at home. I have a feeling the Titans are going to whip us when we see them just after Christmas.
    • Question for you and those who LOL with your post. How long have you been following football to ask a juvenile question? Is that even a question to ponder?   I'f I go through the list of South Florida talent, we would need to start a separate website, yes website never mind thread.   Coaches along: Jimmy Johnson, Dave Wanstedt, Pagano, just to name a few. Lets not start with players. On this current team, players not named Marlon Mack or TY Hilton, Anthony Walker, Jacoby Brissett, Al Qudin Muhammad, Xavier Rhodes (Norland High School is less than 20 mins away).   I actually take offense to your question. But to no avail, here is your answer: The Hurricanes hold the record for most players selected in the first round in a single draft (6, in 2004), most first-round draft picks in a two-year period (10, from 2003 to 2004), most first-round draft picks in a three-year period (15, from 2002 through 2004), and most first-round picks in a four-year period (19, from 2001 through 2004). As of the 2015 NFL season, UM has 45 players on NFL rosters, including players on NFL Practice Squads and Injured Reserves and not including current Free Agents, which is the most out of any NCAA program in the nation. As of the 2016 NFL Draft, Miami now has had at least one NFL draft pick in every draft since 1975, each of the last 42 NFL drafts, one of the longest streaks among FBS programs. The Hurricanes once had a streak of 149 consecutive regular season weeks where a former Hurricane scored a touchdown in an NFL game; the streak started in Week 15 of the 2002 NFL regular season and ended in Week 11 of the 2011 season.During the streak, 33 different former Hurricanes scored touchdowns and a total of 661 touchdowns were scored. From the 2001 Miami Hurricanes football team alone, 42 players went on to be drafted into the NFL from (2002-2006), including 17 1st round picks. The Hurricanes have had at least one former player make the Pro Bowl every season since 1985, 31 years in a row.
    • The game wasn't exactly a shock due to the missing players, but some of the themes were not what I expected, how about you guys?    Reason's the game was lost and what's next:  --------------------------------- 1. Rock Ya Sin.  I think Rock is starting to look more like a Draft miss than hit.  They often refer to his wrestling career, and that is never good because it usually comes after a Defensive Hold or Interference.  He really put us in a bind with his first penalty, and drove a stake in our heart when we had them stopped but they got the ball back for a later TD, and arguments could be made it costs us 14 points because it so deflated our team we went into a tailspin and gave up that ridiculous 4th down play setting up the 5th TD.     2. Loss of poise.  I saw several things, but that horrendous punching and disqualification was so deflating to the teams loss of poise in performance that I wouldn't be disappointed to learn they cut him from the team, though I doubt they have the b*lls.  There should be a near zero tolerance for a role player special teamer to lose his cool that egregiously and cost the team at such a critical time.     3. Loss of AC/Poor O-Line Depth may be a fatal blow to any post season success.  We have a long long history of failure without our most important lineman.  Even though he isn't what he once was (and it has been clear to me he's playing hurt as much as simple decline has kicked in) the drop off is so dire after him that I think only with significant shuffling can we keep Rivers upright and healthy and have any chance to run an offense not always in crises.  With a poor LT, Rivers one glaring weakness, immobility is amplified 10X.  I will say his quick release saved as many sacks as Mahommes could have scrambled out of, but the difference is he can't possibly complete meaningful attacks with so little time or free space to launch it to an open receiver.  Frankly his performance under that pressure was the most impressive performance I have seen from him all year.  But heroic sack saving isn't effective offense.  This lack o-line  depth has been something MANY here have been pointing not only all season and pre season, but literally going back to last season as well.  And we had MUCH better depth last year than this.  It was my #1 concern entering the season.  It was obvious.  A brilliant GM keeps making this same error.  He admitted his failure to secure a quality O-Line his first year (after many had begged the previous GM to do the same, and I believe that is truly what cost him his job, or at least deserved to).     Things that were hopeful: ------------------------------ 1.   Hines has proven to be a warrior.  He's our most important and reliable offensive weapon, much like the pass catching RBs of River's SD teams.  We should never see another game without him being a key contributor, no different than TN using their RB to do the same.   Everyone knew Hines was the only thing working, but he kept working nonetheless.  Reich needs to stop abandoning our key offensive weapon.  I even loved when they sent him deep.  I think HE could be used much like TY used to be, leading to...   2. TY Hilton FINALLY utilized by Reich and Rivers.  TY still has tremendous value.  We were reminded of that finally.  He still has moves, he can still contribute.  Sure, he's not 24 years old anymore, but he is likely our second best weapon after Hines still.  But Rivers simply has no chemistry with him.  All game he was forcing throws to Pascal, who I like, but they had Pascal 100% locked down.  The few catches he made were 50-50 balls.     3.  We saw evidence that our TE's are capable.  Why don't we use them, and use them often?  A three headed monster that should be dominating.  I think for us to have success down the stretch, in addition to using Hilton and Hines, our 3 capable TE's need to be all over the place on short to medium routes using their size and capable hands.  We saw late (too late sadly) that they were playing.  It was almost like they weren't through 3 quarters.  Sure, TN had backed up coverage, but dang, those guys have skills and can be hit quickly.     4. Brissett has been used well in short yardage.  I am glad they are building on this.  Even his relative slowness, he looks like a lightning bolt compared to Rivers.  I do think they need to show some short yardage passing so they keep defenses honest helping his future sneaks.     5. Pinter was serviceable compared to LT options.  I hope our center comes back and finishes the season, but Pinter at least showed a little depth at G/C.     What to do in the future now that winning the division is reasonably out of reach; ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 1. The line woes will continue to be a problem.  Depth is simply unacceptable.  I think if AC is lost for the season that we need to rethink positions, such as whether Smith could move to LT and perhaps use Pinter at RT?  I know he has "short arms" for Pro T play, but he has to be better than the other options.  I think they should strongly alter our game plans to account for lesser line e play.  Rivers didn't have time to let route develop, and with no mobility, they are going to have to improve our tepid screen play and conduct more short routes for multiple TE's in 2 TE sets.  Rivers has to be able to get the ball out quick.  I do think the play calling the past 4 weeks had improved, but something happened this game and we were just too limited until late in the game when they were hitting TEs and TY.   More please.     2. Our D should get back in line with the return of the Covid players.  I like the second half adjustments the D is making but why aren't we making these adjustments in the first half.  35 points is too much and the penalties are devastating.  Is it time to play Carrie instead of Ya Sin?  I think they should seriously consider demoting him for back ups.  He's just too much of a liability.  Perhaps if he came in off the bench we could get off the field more often in the first half.     What did you all think? 
    • I don’t mean to offend, but.....   The population of Buffalo is roughly 255,000.   The population of Chicago is roughly 2.66 million.   Our nation’s third largest city.  Plus, they were playing Green Bay, a team that historically gets good TV ratings even though it is much smaller than Buffalo.  It’s the smallest city to have a major sports franchise.  TV ratings are, in part,  why Indianapolis doesn’t get many National games unless they have someone like Peyton Manning or Andrew Luck.    It’s not just about the win-loss records.
