Yikes: Islanders fan rips off shirt to propose, girlfriend says no and runs away immediately
A New York Islanders fan endured one of the most embarrassing moments of his life tonight. Of course, it involved a woman, a sporting event, and a ring.
With every game comes the kiss cam, and it seems like this guy had his whole routine planned out before the game even started. The camera turned to him and his girlfriend, and he immediately jumped out of his seat and ripped his shirt off. The Islanders fan had “PLZ SAY YES YES YES” written on his chest.
Let’s just say his idea didn’t end as planned…

Islanders Fan Gets Rejected by Girlfriend
Dan Rosen was right in his tweet. You definitely cannot make this up. It’s the stuff of nightmares, at least in my opinion.
Proposing at a sporting event has always been weird to me. Nobody gives a shit about it, and there’s always a chance you’ll get rejected in front of thousands of people (unless you’re at a Coyotes game).
It’s even weirder when you write “plz say yes” on your chest. This guy was practically asking his girlfriend to say no.
And guess what happened. She did! She dipped out of there faster than you can say, “I stopped loving you years ago. I packed up my things and took them to my sister’s. I’m taking the dog too.”
What kind of psycho thinks this is even a remotely good idea? He had to have been so confident his girlfriend would say yes.
He had his Icarus moment. We all have one, his just happened to be televised and in public. Oofta.
As someone that lacks that kind of pure, unadulterated confidence, this brought a sick little smile across my face. In my opinion, that Islanders fan got what he deserved.
What sucks is, if he had proposed in a more normal fashion, she might have said yes. At the very least he would have been spared being the subject of one of my blogs. An unenviable position to be sure.
I can’t help but imagine how the rest of his night went. He likely endured one of the worst non-sexual walks of shame in the history of mankind in front of fellow Islanders fans. You can show your face at the arena after this.
He definitely stood in the mirror at home, looking at the paint on his chest muttering obscenities at himself. Only then will he realize how avoidable the public spectacle was that he put himself, and more importantly his girlfriend, through.
However, do I feel sympathy for this girl? No, absolutely not.
She knew what she was getting into with this clown. Sporting event proposal guys are easy to spot, as are guys that like ripping their shirts off.
The fact that she missed the convergence of two of the biggest red flags on earth proves she’s not innocent in this matter. Far from it.
God this is so brutal I can’t even believe it. I’m just lucky I’m not dumb enough to do something this dumb in public. Well, at least not intentionally.
Oh, and we can’t forget. To cap off the entire situation, the Florida Panthers scored on the Islanders as she was running away.
You can’t make it up.
