6 Epic Jumbotron Marriage Proposal Failures
In honor of Valentine's Day, we round up the most epic Jumbotron marriage proposal failures of all time.

February 14, 2013 | by Steve Crowe

Editor’s Note: This article was such a big hit in 2012, we thought we’d re-gift it this year for Valentine’s Day.

Ah, Valentine’s Day. The most romantic day of the year.

Love is in the air. Cupid is hard at work. And couples everywhere are proclaiming their eternal love for one another.

I’m not much of a romantic, and neither is my fiancee. She and I are both big sports fans, so I actually contemplated popping the big question at a sporting event - you know, one of those cheesy proposals on the Jumbotron in front of thousands of inebriated strangers.

But I erred on the side of caution and chose a much more subdued, private moment to pop the question. Boy am I thankful someone knocked some sense into me.

We’ve rounded up some of the worst Jumbotron marriage proposals that have failed. There’s no recovering from the humiliation of being rejected in front of thousands of cheering fans at a baseball game or basketball game. After all, you have to be pretty confident she’ll say yes if you decide to propose.

Some (ahem, senior writer Craig MacCormack) seem to think some of these proposals are staged. We’ll let you decide.
