Lesmerises reports Ohio State offensive lineman Jim Cordle recently had the delightfully romantic notion that he should propose to his fiancee at the Buckeyes season-ending football banquet.
Cordle planned it out for a year, enlisted the help of his future mother-in-law, told many of his teammates and then dropped to a knee at the end of his remarks. Kerry McNally, a third-year Ohio State law student who has been dating Cordle for more than four years, said yes.
Video of the poignant moment (in front of 85 fat, sweaty guys toothpicking carrot cake remains) after the jump.
Ohio State Coach Jim Tressel aptly observed, “He extended our banquet by 15 minutes because he kept rambling and thanking all these other people and hesitating. But he did a great job once he pulled the trigger.”
