CNY Jets Fan Proposes to Cowboys Girlfriend at Dallas Stadium
A Central New York Jets fan proposed to his Cowboys girlfriend at Dallas Stadium.
Clayton Thomas is a die-hard New York Jets fan. His girlfriend Michele Wilson of Remsen, New York is a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan. The two have known each other for over 20 years and every Sunday is dedicated to football and watching the games together.
The Jets and Cowboys only play each other every four years and the teams alternate stadiums. The couple had been planning to go to the Cowboys stadium for 3 years and this was their year.
Tour Day Proposal
Before the big game, Michele and Clayton toured the stadium in Dallas where Clayton decided it was time to propose.
When we walked onto the field I wanted a picture on the helmet on the end zone. So he got in the picture with me, had his arm around me, and bam next thing I know he is down on one knee with the ring box.
Clayton wanted to propose the day before the game, telling Michele, "You know you are going to lose tomorrow right, so I wanted to do this today."
Michele accepted the proposal and Clayton's mother's engagement ring. The next day she enjoyed watching her Dallas Cowboys come out with a win.
After knowing each other for over 20 years we get to spend the rest of our lives together. I got to come home with a Cowboys win over the Jets and the ring.
