A gay couple have got engaged in a historic way – at a Chicago Bulls game.
This is the first time the NBA has hosted an in-game gay proposal.
Jake Conrad took to Facebook earlier this week to begin planning the special engagement to his boyfriend and lifelong Bulls fan Michael Holtzman.
Thankfully, someone did know someone at the Chicago Bulls. That meant the happy couple were right at center court during the Bulls’ game against the San Antonio Spurs.
Bulls spokesperson Ross Lipschultz, in a statement to Outsports, said: At the Chicago Bulls game vs the San Antonio Spurs on 8 December, the Bulls worked with Jake Conrad to set up an in-game proposal for his partner, Michael Holtzman.
‘Michael has been a lifelong Bulls fan and watches every game. After he once told Jake that his dream was to go to a Bulls game, Jake knew he wanted to propose to Michael at a game to show him how committed he is to making Michael’s dreams come true.
‘Jake bought tickets to the game and contacted the Bulls to purchase a fan experience package to propose before the game. The Bulls were touched by Jake and Michael’s story and wanted to make the experience extra special, so they asked Jake if he would be open to proposing during the game.
‘Once Jake agreed, the team worked with him to set up a proposal during a timeout involving Benny the Bull and the Luvabulls. The Chicago Bulls are honored to have been part of such a special moment for this couple.’
