Bucks fan uses Cameroonian player, basketball to propose to girlfriend (video)

There are many ways to propose to a woman, some romantic (ideally), but depending on the temperament and sense of humor of a young woman, it is possible that a man can get away with some downright peculiar methods in which to ask for his special lady friend’s hand in marriage.

And with that in mind, may I present this guy. Evidently a die-hard Milwaukee Bucks fan, this fellow believed there to be no better way to propose than by enlisting the services of Cameroon-born Milwaukee Bucks forward Luc Richard Mbah a Moute while courtside prior to a Bucks home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The plan was for Mbah a Moute do roll a ball with the words “Will You Marry Me?” written upon it. Unfortunately, the young lady at first didn’t understand exactly what was going on — and who can blame her? — as she immediately tosses the ball back into the basketball player’s direction after it rolled up to her feet. Undeterred, the gambit is attempted again, this time with the young man’s help, as he picks up the ball, turns it over so his girlfriend can see what has been written on the ball.

Tears are shed by the young lady — surprisingly happy ones — and by all accounts appears to accept her boyfriend’s proposal as the two kiss and embrace on the court. How romantic. I would give this guy a “well done, chap,” but to be honest, I instead believe he’s just incredibly lucky that his now-fiancĂ©e is apparently so smitten with him. That has to be the case.
