There are few things more romantic than proposing to your future wife at Alabama's spring game.
At least that's what the 85% of Alabama fans think.
It's become an annual tradition, Alabama hosts a free spring football game and 85%'ers fall all over themselves to remember this moment forever, via a spring game proposal. Today we already have at least two such proposals. The first arrives via @mcbradtrey, who snapped this heartwarming photo of a bald man dropping down to one knee on the Bryant-Denny field and proposing to his wife as a crowd of idle onlookers looked on thinking, "Roll Tide!" and "I wish Nick Saban was here shirtless!"
Proving that women want to get married so badly they can make anything seem romantic, the woman here seems to be inclined to say yes.
Which is unfortunate.
Because I think if you get proposed to at a spring game every woman should say no out of principle.

Every online writer starts somewhere.
For me, I started writing online in 2004 when I moved to the U.S. Virgin Islands and discovered that DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket was not available in my new home.
I was upset.
So I did what every reasonable person would do -- I embarked upon a fifty day pudding strike to demand that the Virgin Islands receive the NFL Sunday Ticket. During that time I ate only pudding. My pudding strike became a viral sensation before anyone knew what being viral meant. It was everywhere. You can probably track down your own articles via a Google search, but here's a Pulitzer worthy interview and column on my pudding strike from the Orlando Sentinel.
After the pudding strike ended -- we succeeded in snagging a pirated feed of the NFL Sunday Ticket from Puerto Rico -- I decided I'd enjoyed writing humorous pieces online and wanted to do more of it.
But, go figure, there wasn't much of a market for pudding strikers. (Although I do submit that my daily pudding diary was some of the finest pudding related literature to ever be created. Online, anyway).
So I decided to start a humor website with several buddies, the funniest guys I knew from high school, college, and law school. We were an interesting lot of characters, a lawyer in the Virgin Islands, a Subaru salesman who used to play basketball at Colorado, Josh Townsend, a pro basketball player overseas, my buddy D.J. Harrison, the 27, a Florida lawyer who already hated big firm life, and the man who built our website and made everything click, a PhD student from Maryland named Chris Shaw who I met in freshman year of college.
Our idea was pretty simple -- be funny every day for people like us who sat in offices looking for entertaining things on the Internet.
Ever since the Aaron Hernandez story broke, Outkick has been arguing that there's no way Odin Lloyd was Hernandez's first shooting victim.
It just didn't make sense.
No one goes from smoking pot to an execution style murder a half-mile from his home.
No, our theory was that Hernandez was comfortable shooting people and that he'd gotten cocky because of getting away with prior shootings. Within a few hours of that column being published news broke that Boston police were looking into Hernandez for an unsolved double murder in 2012.
Texas A&M has proven to be a good fit for the SEC already.
But so far we hadn't had any Aggie fans doing anything that might be described as crazy. Yeah, we had the student who got the A&M-Bama score tattooed on his butt, and we have Johnny Manziel's continued shenanigans.
But what about some good old fashioned dyed in the wool crazy fan antics?
I mean, we know Alabama and Texas A&M are playing college football's biggest regular season game this September.
And we know Alabama fans are crazy as hell.
But can A&M really give Bama a run in the crazy fan department?
We really haven't seen much to suggest that the answer is yes.
Yes, this Texas A&M wedding really happened.
Congrats to Harv and Heather!
