Ahhh, you can feel the spring time love in the air. New York Giants rookie Greg Jones proposed to his girlfriend, Mandy Piechowski, on the field right after his team (Giants) won the Super Bowl this past Sunday night.
ESPN caught the special moment right on the field and here’s what they are reporting:
“Shortly after the Giants beat the Patriots, 21-17, Jones proposed to his girlfriend, Mandy Piechowski, on the confetti-covered Lucas Oil Stadium field as the celebration was under way.
An emotionally overwhelmed Piechowski said yes.
“She was bawling,” Jones said Monday morning before hopping on the team bus to head to the airport. “Just everything we have been through together … she has been there since day one.”
Jones, a rookie drafted in the sixth round out of Michigan State, has known Piechowski for three years. She played basketball at Michigan State, and the two became friends first but did not start dating until a year and a half ago. He purchased the engagement ring — a brilliant round cut diamond ring with several smaller diamonds on the band — recently and had been waiting for the right moment to pop the question.
When Piechowski ran onto the field looking for Jones to celebrate the Giants’ win, she was already emotional. She began crying as soon as she found him and embraced him.
“But then he put me down pretty fast and I was like, ‘Oh, OK,’” she said. “And then he is digging in his pants and I am like, ‘What are you doing?’”
“He pulls out a box and I am still not comprehending what he was about to do,” she said. “First thing I thought of was their ring and that doesn’t make sense. Then he opens it.
“Jones got down on one knee on the field and said, “Amanda Piechowski, will you spend the rest of your life with me?”
