We would make fun of this guy for proposing on a Jumbotron at a baseball game but, as you can tell from the headline, he had a rough enough time on Sunday night at Fenway Park. We say that because that's the time and place where he decided he was going to get on a knee and ask his girlfriend(?) if she would want to spend the rest of her life with him. It did not go over well:
As if that wasn't bad enough, at least a portion of the crowd of nearly 37,000 began to rub it in with some "she said no!" chants:

A few fans in attendance also shared the rejection with their social media followers:
Frankly, given how freaking unromantic it is to propose in the presence of over-the-top hecklers and ballplayers grabbing their crotch every four seconds, it's kind of surprising that this doesn't happen more often.
Take this as a cautionary tale.
