A lesbian woman proposed on St. Patrick's Day to her girlfriend during a break in the game between the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs at the National Hockey League contest. The venue was the Scotiabank Place in Ottawa.
The video, according to SDGLN.com, was posted on NHL.com.
Jezebel reports Alicia in blue Toronto Maple Leafs hockey shirt was blindfolded and led into the rink by the Senators team mascot. When the blindfold was removed she looked up at the big screen and saw the message from her girlfriend: “My love for you is a journey, starting at forever and ending at never. You’re my world. Zing XOX.”
Alicia's lover Christina, rooting for the Ottawa Senators in red Senators hockey shirt, walked up and embraced her. The crowd went wild as Christina got on her knees, pulled out an engagement ring and slipped it on Alicia's finger. Christina proposed with the full backing of the Senators mascot who carried a sign that told everyone "Alicia said yes," after the couple had kissed.
Sports game proposals are becoming popular with couples, straight and gay alike, and it seems the crowds are enjoying it.
