Upon asking THE WIFE her thoughts on a marriage proposal during a sporting event (like the recent one during a UCLA Basketball game), her reaction was quick and straight and to the point.

“Tacky,” she quickly replied.

“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 my noggin.  This plan simply wouldn’t be a good fit for the WIFE that HATES sports.

That thought leads directly to the latest “Wife of the Week”.  It’s a woman who was sitting court side with her boyfriend at a UCLA basketball game. 


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

She will remain nameless, because quite honestly, I have no idea who she is.

K-I-S-S-I-N-G (Maybe Not)

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. 

He proposed while on video and in front of the entire crowd.

As if it wasn’t enough for him to have to watch the struggling Bruins basketball team, he would instead watch this woman stare at him blankly.  Then, he’d see her storm off without giving him the “yes” that the sparse crowd wanted to see.

Talk about a fast break.

Real or a Hoax?


Naturally, the awkward reaction leads to a number of assumptions.  For one, some people believe the entire event was a hoax.  Others say it was a way for this couple to get attention and fame.

Then again, maybe it was for real.  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.  If you missed it, check it out below and provide your thoughts on marriage proposals at sporting events.  Also, I’d be curious to hear if you feel this event was fake or the real deal.

Either way, consider this award her consolation prize.

As for him, well… UCLA basketball? 

Oof, maybe in a few years, pal.  

As always, thank you for visiting The Wife Hates Sports!
