Perhaps you think that it’s rather cliché to ask your significant other to marry you in front of tens of thousands of people at a sporting event, where your answer will be recorded on the stadium’s video board.

But what if the marriage proposal took place on the field among your work colleagues, and he was dressed handsomely in his military uniform? That would be a pretty tough request to turn down, right?

Fortunately, that was the case for US Air Force captain Erick Straub, who proposed to Cardinals cheerleader Claire Thornton during the first half of the Washington-Arizona game on Sunday. Considering she’s showing off the ring in the above photo, –and by the evidence from this video — I assume she said “yes.”

But Thornton wasn’t the only NFL cheerleader to get engaged. Falcons cheerleader Sydney was also betrothed this weekend, via the Falcons cheerleaders’ Instagram page.

So, a hearty Mazel Tov to all the affected parties. May your happiness continue to grow even when all the recording cameras are switched off.
