There goes the bride? Woman misses marriage proposal at Wrigley Field (Video)

Hey, we're in no position to judge. If you think Wrigley Field is the best place to pop the question to your girlfriend then go ahead and dip your knee into that growing pool of Old Style in the aisle and ask for her hand in marriage.

But for the love of Jeff Pico, please make sure she doesn't wander away for a hot dog and malt cup when the Cubs actually put your inquiry on the old green scoreboard.

Check out this dude's reaction when he realizes he has a ring and a message but no actual woman to set the magic moment into motion:


Luckily Ms. Cub eventually wandered back to her seat during Monday night's 14-4 mashing of the Pittsburgh Pirates and the delayed engagement attempt proved successful.

Here's hoping her casanova ponied up the $110 and got the team to take a picture of the message she originally missed — and that he keeps a closer eye on her when their actual wedding day arrives.
