Stay safe, be well, and let’s us hope for better days…when things return to the way there were before and we can enjoy our favorite pastimes again.

Detroit Pistons Dancer Gets Engaged During Timeout

By Janine Puhak | Fox News

Two members of the Detroit Pistons’ spirit squad are headed to the altar, after “Extreme Team” member Ryan popped the question to dancer Jenn with an epically choreographed midcourt routine during a timeout in the third quarter of a recent game.

On Feb. 11, the NBA Pistons played the Washington Wizards on their home court at Little Caesars Arena, and fans were surprised with quite the romantic performance by the Extreme Team squad, CBS Sports reports.

https://twitter.com/i/status/1095138556358606849In video footage that has since gone massively viral, Jenn is seated on the court while Ryan and his entourage dance, move and groove to Bruno Mars’ hit tune “Marry You.” Pulling out all the stops for the apple of his eye, Ryan breakdances, backflips, throws on a blazer and checks his hair – all in stride – before getting down on one knee.

Jenn, meanwhile, said yes – to the delight of the crowd and the collective Internet. Footage of the sweet scene – shared to Twitter by the NBA – has since been viewed over 538,000 times in less than 24 hours, winning thousands of likes and comments.
