Marriage proposals are supposed to be sweet and kind and caring and unique and hopefully caught on camera. As SportsGrid reported on Sept. 26, 2013, a recent proposal at a Colorado Rockies game was caught on camera, but it had one unfortunate inclusion. That inclusion was an elderly woman who photobombed the picture by flipping the bird.
At Coors Field on the evening of Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013, Kerinsa Miller had the job of being the photographer for a once-in-a-lifetime proposal of Rockies fan Kenny Lovelace asking girlfriend, Molly Ryan. Little did Miller think that the same night the retiring Todd Helton was given a horse, she would be given the finger.
When the time came for the proposal, Mullins was a couple of rows ahead and stood up to take pictures. That was when a couple of older fans started razzing her.
“They kept yelling at me and I just ignored them because I was there to do a job and I did not want to miss something that would be so brief and so important,” Mullins says.
Ryan said "yes" to the proposal as other fans cheered. The older couple was still not amused. One fan with them even went to get security because she could not return to her seat, but by that time, the moment was over and Mullins got out of the way.
The next day, Mullins began looking through the pictures and noticed the dirty looks being given to her by the older fans. Then she spotted the photobomb of all photobombs as the older woman was giving the middle finger right in the middle of Ryan saying "yes" to Lovelace's proposal.
