Upon asking THE WIFE her thoughts on a marriage proposal during a sporting event, her reaction was straight and to the point.

“Tacky,” she quickly said.

“But it depends on the couple, and maybe that sporting event has significant meaning to them, or perhaps it’s how they met,” she added.

Clearly, that knowledge was already in this noggin, and it wouldn’t be a good fit for the wife that hates sports.

That thought leads directly to the latest “Wife of the Week”, a woman who was sitting courtside with her boyfriend at a UCLA basketball game in late December.


A man proposed to his girlfriend during a UCLA basketball game. The reaction wasn’t what he wanted.

UCLA posted its “Mistletoe Cam” on the screen above, urging couples that appear on it to kiss.  That’s when this poor soul was met with likely the most embarrassing moment of his life, proposing while on video and in front of the whole crowd.

As if it wasn’t enough for him to have to watch the struggling Bruins basketball team, he then would instead watch this woman stare at him blankly, and then storm off without giving him the “yes” that the sparse crowd was seeking.hot-ucla-cheerleaders

Naturally, the awkward reaction leads to a number of people to assume that this whole event was a hoax, and a way for this couple to get attention and fame.

Then again, maybe it was for real, or perhaps it was a situation where this woman was sharing the opinion of THE WIFE.

Either way, this week’s winner – whoever she may be – is the latest “Wife of the Week”.

The video itself has been making its rounds across some major sites and blogs this week and if you missed it, check it out below and provide your thoughts on marriage proposals at sporting events, or whether you feel this event was fake or the real deal.

Either way, consider this award her consolation prize.
