New York Giants rookie linebacker Greg Jones proposed to his girlfriend Mandy Piechowski on the field at Lucas Oil Stadium after the Giants defeated the Patriots in the Super Bowl on Sunday (via ESPN).
When Piechowski ran onto the field looking for Jones to celebrate the Giants' win, she was already emotional. She began crying as soon as she found him and embraced him.
"But then he put me down pretty fast and I was like, 'Oh, OK,'" she said. "And then he is digging in his pants and I am like, 'What are you doing?'"
Jones pulled out a box with the ring inside. He said to Piechowski
"Amanda Piechowski, will you spend the rest of your life with me?"
She said yes. Jones said
"She was bawling," Jones said Monday morning before hopping on the team bus to head to the airport. "Just everything we have been through together ... she has been there since day one."
Piechowski said that it felt quiet on the field when Jones proposed despite the trophy celebration starting. Jones was sneaky about the presentation of the ring. He had reserve tight end Christian Hopkins hang onto the ring until the right moment.
