"You can have your wedding at Arrowhead. So why not propose at Arrowhead too?"
That was my lede for this story of a man who proposed to his girlfriend at the Chiefs-Bengals game Thursday night at Arrowhead Stadium. A beautiful moment between two lovers ... with pictures! What a story.
Except that's not the story here. The girl has a boyfriend. And it's not the Chiefs fan in the pictures below. The "Arrowhead concourse wedding proposal" story is (unfortunately) a fake.
Here's how it started
Some websites saw a tweet from a user who claimed to have caught a moment in the Arrowhead concourse.
I saw this tweet, too. Because I spend my entire day on the Internet, my BS meter is high. I was skeptical. So I reached out to the guy.
@Real_B_Riley So did you really propose last night at the game?— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) August 8, 2014
The girl didn't even know the guy!
It's actually kinda funny
@ReannaJoy tell you're boyfriend not to worry!— B. Riley (@Real_B_Riley) August 8, 2014
