Man proposes to cheerleader girlfriend after emerging from Benny the Bull costume

USA TODAY Sports

Benny the Bull, the most romantic inflatable mascot in sports.

There is no scourge worse in America than proposing at sporting events, a phenomenon we have already noted that we have a particular aversion towards.

However, a person at Bulls-Heat Thursday night put a new spin on it.

The lady sitting in the chair is Ariana, a member of the Bulls' dance team -- the Luvabulls, get it, its like they're lovable but also the word "Bulls" is in it -- and the person walking towards her is an inflatable version of Benny the Bull. OR IS IT:

No, it was her boyfriend Shane, now her fiancé Shane. Smooth, the way he struggles to remove the costume from his feet before confidently popping the question.

Nothing says romance like "I'VE BEEN INSIDE THAT GIANT INFLATABLE BULL COSTUME THIS ENTIRE TIME!" But what if she actually wants to get married to giant inflatable Benny the Bull and not Shane?

You'd think there would be somewhat of an exception to the "DON'T PROPOSE AT SPORTING EVENTS PLEASE DON'T PROPOSE AT SPORTING EVENTS" rule because she's on the dance team, but in a way, it's even worse. That's her place of work! You're supposed to propose someplace special, not the place where you do your job!

The one winner, though: the real Benny the Bull in a suit.
