2. Betts Jersey Marriage Proposal

OK, before we get started here … Dodgers fans, would you marry a Giants supporter?

If so … how?

The baseball season lasts an extremely long time. For 162 days, you and your spouse will be secretly (or not-so-secretly) hoping the other one ends up angry at the end of the day. And once those 162 days end, it’s right back to … rooting for the other person’s team to strike out in free agency, or taking opposite sides in (we presume!) the Lakers-Warriors rivalry. Very little good can come of this!

Unless you’re both emotionally mature, and in that case, you’ll probably be fine.

Such is the case — we hope! — for the pumped up Dodgers fan in the Mookie Betts jersey who proposed to his Giants fan girlfriend during this weekend’s action, then ruined their special moment by … spinning to the camera and pointing at his Betts jersey.

I mean … you might say he ruined their special moment the second he decided to put it on the jumbotron. And you might be right.

It certainly won’t help for the next 50 years, though, that every time they go to show friends and family their proposal video, it’s very quickly interrupted by a spirited endorsement for Betts and a metaphorical double middle finger to the Giants in the form of an actual double-thumb point.

It might, though, serve as an accurate reminder of what exactly this woman is marrying: fiancé first, Dodgers second.
