UCLA Game Features Botched Marriage Proposal; Happy Holidays!

The setting was perfect and the time was right for one man ready to make a big splash, and for the crowd who came out to watch UCLA and Richmond play some basketball on Friday night, the entertainment level was off the charts.

You're wondering if it was staged, because everyone wonders if things like this are staged. For its part, UCLA is saying it had nothing to do with the botched proposal.

Happy Holidays, y'all!
