Getting Engaged With The Wonder Years
 
It's been a while since I've posted anything like this, and I'm feeling in a "love isn't the worst thing in the world" mood today -- so I figured I'd share a video of a happy couple getting engaged at at recent The Wonder Years' show. Check the replies.

I saw Soupy tweet this. That's awesome. Congrats to them.

randys950 11/15/12 11:49 AM

good to see happy things like this at this point in my life

cowlord 11/15/12 11:49 AM

Soupy's beard is looking good, I must say.

Kyle Thrash 11/15/12 11:49 AM

crowd surf made this for me

Chrisj182 11/15/12 11:52 AM

Better than on New Years or Christmas.

I swear I saw someone asking Soupy in another thread on here if he could help him, or his friend, propose to his gf at one of their upcoming shows. Is this that guy? If so, that's AWESOME of the band and a great story!

Jared215 11/15/12 12:03 PM

Yep, that's me! Soupy was super cool about it!

Jaytothesyg 11/15/12 12:03 PM

That's awesome, but I think it's to impersonal for me.

Congrats though dude!

jtrim215 11/15/12 12:09 PM

Hey that's me!
 
During TWY's set, someone was crowd surfing and hit my head, so when my (now) fiance took me out of the middle of the crowd, I thought it was because I was hurt! I had no idea anything was going on until we walked towards the back of the stage! I appreciate The Wonder Years for being such awesome people and letting him do that. I'll never forget it!
Pop-punk proposal of a lifetime.

Jared215 11/15/12 12:23 PM

Oh dang. Just to clarify, I'm not the one engaged. I'm the one that got a hold of Soupy in the thread FOR my friend. Yeah I"m not engaged.

Lightsout911X 11/15/12 12:26 PM

I was there, and it was adorable.

BigG1392 11/15/12 12:42 PM

All right, let me be the first to say congratulations to then. You get one vagina for the rest of your life. Real smart. Way to work it through.

ARo2431 11/15/12 02:44 PM

I love how she gets engaged then is like I guess I'll crowd surf out of here now haha. Congrats that's awesome.

As a girl who constantly looks at wedding boards on pintrest, I am sooooo jealous of you. Congrats!

DandonTRJ 11/15/12 03:55 PM

Things like this are awesome. The guy who hosted the Matt & Toby house show in Baldwin Park, CA proposed to his girlfriend near the end of their set. I don't usually get visibly surprised at things, but I audibly gasped when it happened. Super heartwarming.

iseeumonkey 11/15/12 04:03 PM

They listed "marriage proposal" on the setlist of the show.

kismet 11/15/12 04:28 PM

Awwww I absolutely love watching proposals. Congrats to the happy couple!

The Revisionist 11/15/12 04:33 PM

Mehhhhh public proposals.

Just finished watching 5 Centimeters Per Second....I needed this to make my mood a bit happier.

EDIT: it worked

cscwell107 11/15/12 05:30 PM

This worked great for me at the Man Overboard show and I'm really happy it worked out for someone else too! Congrats to the happy couple!!

This was literally the coolest thing I've seen all day. Props to you for being a good friend and TWY for letting/helping it happen.

Nothing says "America" like a fist pump and a crowd chant.

U-S-A! U-S-A!

Maiaophilia 11/16/12 10:44 AM

I feel like Im the only one on here who despite my love for The Wonder Years I wouldnt want to get proposed to during one of their sets.

But congrats to the couple
