Local Man Wastes Money

I’m not sure if this is romantic or a waste of cash. Today’s City Paper has an article about a Hendersonville man trying to hop on the Internet fundraising bandwagon. His goal is to net 2 million bucks to buy a Super Bowl ad in which he’ll propose to his girlfriend of 4 years.

2 million dollars? For a 30 second proposal? In my opinion, this is stupid, not romantic. I would take the money and run to my new Belle Meade house, where I would propose with a fat diamond.

I love it when Middle Tennessee folks grab headlines with ideas that don’t quite make sense.

    Then Sam, I have to say you are far more deserving of a wife and certainly of $2 million than that idiot.

    And there is always the possibility that she’ll say no.

    After reading the article, I’ve decided that I like this guy. If he doesn’t make enough money for the ad, he’s donating it to Vanderbilt’s Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital. He seems like an average guy with a big heart running with a quirky idea.

    I’ll take the $2 million and run a 30 second highlight of me and my chick doin’ it.

    I think there are better ways to spend that money, so I’m voting waste. I like the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital donation idea, but how about if he spends 20 seconds of the ad proposing and 10 seconds encouraging donations? That might make it a better spend for me.

    I can’t call this romantic, though I’m sure his intentions are great. There’s no surprise, and wouldn’t this ad just make him the biggest dufus in the large category of dudes who propose to their girlfriends at sporting events?

    B-Dub, give me a heads up about your ad, and I’ll set the DVR. ;)
