    Asking girl to marry me on Opening Day

    I know it's played out, and some might say cheesey. But she loves going to GABP and she loves the Reds and knows how much I love baseball. There's NO WHERE I'd rather be when I do it. We've already gone the romantic route one time, and it didn't quite end up working out how we planned. The second time around, the final and for good time, I'm gonna do it at my favorite place in the world.

    Now do I do it at the 7th inning stretch of as the Reds high five to celebrate being 1-0

    I would opt for the 7th inning stretch....just in case. Proposing after losing on Opening Day strikes me as a baaaaad sign. Now if you can arrange for Jay Bruce to hit a walk-off salami I'd go for after the game.

    Good Luck.

    Be confident that she's going to say, "yes".

    You don't want to be "that" guy.

    Yea she's said she'd never want this either.... and I'm not going that route. Like I said, I've already went the romantic route once, and she said yes, and then we didn't end up getting married and got back together (long story).

    But now I'm just going to be me haha

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    You can't just throw that out there and then nothing.

    How about a Cliff Note's version?

    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009

    Haha sure just don't be sorry you asked

    we met in college. I graduated in 2005 and during her 2007 year when she was a junior, I bought a condo that she really liked and soon after asked her to marry me. Then I got really sick out of nowhere an almost died. I had Lyme disease. I was so sick It was probably hard to be in a relationship with me and watch me fall apart. This was march 2008. She got homesick and moved back to New Jersey where she was from and while I should have broke up with her then, I did not. We broke up, and she realized she messed up and moved back to Ohio for me and treats me really great now. She's the person I always wanted now. So, we went to Reds games whether I was sick or well so many times. There's no better place to make it right

    I think I followed that, but I need to read the whole book...

    Sounds like a happy ending regardless!

    Isn't she the gal who bought you an autographed Jay Bruce baseball for your birthday? Must be a keeper.

    Congrats!
