Mike McCarthy provides big assist as Green Bay Packers fan proposes to girlfriend on vacation

Shutdown Corner

Many men have popped the question at a sporting event, but how many can say they dropped to one knee while a NFL coach was standing a few feet away taking pictures of the scene?

Milwaukee resident Tim Schlosser was on a recent Florida vacation with his girlfriend Abigail Kobriger when they spotted a familiar figure in Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy.

Schlosser ran over to McCarthy and requested a photo with him. Then, with the wheels in his head turning, he asked the coach if he would take a picture of the couple. What followed was a proposal that Abigail later rated as a "20" on a scale of 1 to 10.

“I asked him, ‘Can you take a picture of us?’” he remembers. “And she's like ‘What?’”

As the Packers coach was about to take the picture, Schlosser made his move.
“Coach hang on, I’ve got one thing to do,” he said. “I pull out the ring and get down on one knee.”

From the photos, you can see the shocked look on her face. Schlosser said Coach McCarthy had a slightly different reaction.

“In his unique voice, he said ‘This is cool, this is really cool,’” Schlosser remembered.

All in all, McCarthy took 30 photos of the couple for a slideshow they'll never forget. They haven't set a date for the wedding but may send an invitation to McCarthy when they do.

Given that Schlosser and Kobriger are big football fans, they probably know to stay away from scheduling the ceremony on weekends in the fall.
