Every girl dreams of having a fairytale proposal. These fairytale proposals tend to be a long romantic day (typically centered around us) spent with the man of your dreams that results with him on one knee holding a huge diamond gleaming back at you. We picture something with a string quartet, bouquets of roses, or maybe even a sunset on the beach.
Georgia linebacker, Jake Ganus, has been dating his girlfriend, Peyton Thomas for seven years. If I were Peyton, I’d assume that a proposal was right around the corner. After putting in years of sitting in bleachers, watching her man play, she’s earned some serious points.
Finally the time came, and he got down on one knee. Except, on a football field. After a game. While sweaty.

Now, maybe I’m being cynical, and Peyton is one of those rare girls that actually likes football. There is, after all, a strange trend in the SEC that the female student body actually cares about it. Suspicious if you ask me. If she’s like the rest of us, though, it’s probably a football player girlfriend façade. We’ll never know. But what I do know is that no girl wants to spend their special moment getting tackled by a bunch of sweaty boys.
On the other hand, who am I to talk? It’s their own personal SEC themed fairytale, and she’s got something most of us don’t: a hot, successful fiancé. They’ll be able to tell this tale to their grandkids from the alumni tent at tailgate for years to come.
I just hope when my nonexistent boyfriend proposes, it’s a little less sweaty..
