From ESPN's Game Notes:

The crowd's focus was distracted during the Wizards' third-quarter rally by a bizarre stunt during a timeout. A man disguised in a bank-teller machine costume proposed to a woman, who appeared stunned and embarrassed and immediately ran toward the Wizards' tunnel before a security guard stopped her. She then ran up the stairs among the fans and was booed. The arena's replay screen flashed "She said no!!" The fans were abuzz over the incident for several minutes as play continued.

Guys, if your gonna propose to your honey, atleast make sure she says "YES" so you wont look like a stalker.

And Gal's, if you wanna say "NO" could you atleast pretend to say "YES" at the game and then tell him "NO" when you get home so a brotha' could atleast save face.

I saw the replays on FoxSports and ESPN......that was painful. She didn't just say no, she said no and ran off the court. Dayamn!

My question for the guy is..........

"Why on earth did you dress up as a bank teller machine for a proposal?"

"Ever hear of a tuxedo? I hear wearing those things for a proposal get you style points." i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif

I'm thinking that was a bit. Why else would they have "she said no" ready to go on the scoreboard? Probably making fun of scoreboard proposals.

With the fancy technology scoreboards and arenas employ now a days, I'm sure it's quite easy to get any message up on the replay board in a matter of seconds.

I hate public proposals - so presumptious.

Any man that insists on turning what should be a private moment into a public spectacle, deserves whatever humiliation comes his way.

Good for her.

Yes, there is no way that any man would propose in a ATM costume. It had to be a bit the team was doing. The symbolism is funny but degrading toward the woman. No man who really wants to get married would go about it in that way.

edit: the only other possibility other than a gag where she was playing a part in it, is that it was a practical joke on her by some co-workers who let the mavs in on it so they could put up the "she said no" sign. Talk about cruel LOL. I don't think this possibility is high probability though.

Maybe the guy was just auditioning for Jerry Springer instead of proposing.

Anyways, most public proposals seem to me more about fueling the guys ego than catering to the woman. I'm sure that's not always the case, but I would bet it's so more times than not.

Guy dressing up as an ATM? Sounds demeaning to the lady... like he's treating her as a gold digger.

I think the ATM thing was a regular contest that they do at games. The guy tricked her into thinking she had won a contest to win some money and then he arranged to be in the ATM costume so he could pop out and pop the question.
