Greg Jones will have no problem remembering the day he proposed to his girlfriend. Neither will New York Giants’ fans.

That’s because the rookie linebacker dropped to one knee and asked Mandy Piechowski to be his wife during the on-field celebration of his team’s 21 to 17 victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI.

Since Jones already had a round-cut diamond engagement ring ready, this doesn’t seem like a case of getting caught up in the moment and popping the question. And since he didn’t make a single tackle during the big game, the proposal was clearly the highlight of his evening.

Piechowski, who Jones met while they were students at Michigan State University, said yes, sparing him the national embarrassment that others who have proposed during sporting events have suffered. Now that would have been the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.
