Eyewitness to shirtless Islanders proposal believes it was all real

While the web turns out positive the shirtless Islanders proposal was a fugazi, an eyewitness believes it was a real rejection.

During Thursday night time’s sport between the Islanders and Panthers, a fan took off his blouse and proposed to his female friend. She mentioned no.

David Marcus, a 17-year-old Islanders fan who lives in Brooklyn, was on the sport along with his father. They have been in phase 118, row 19, one row forward of the couple.

Marcus advised The Post that in the beginning he concept it was a run-of-the-mill Kiss Cam second. “I didn’t think anything of it,” he mentioned. But when Marcus went to move make a humorous face in the back of them kissing, he was stopped by way of an enviornment employee who advised him, “No, don’t do that. Something’s about to happen.”

“Marry You” by way of Bruno Mars got here at the PA, and Marcus began recording on his telephone.

“The guy takes his shirt off and it says, ‘Please say Yes Yes Yes,’” Marcus mentioned. “And she was shocked. I heard her say, ‘What? What’s happening? We can’t do this!’ And then he yells, ‘Oh f–k!’ Everyone was taking a video, and the crowd was going crazy. When she started walking up the stairs, everyone yelled, ‘Awww…’ It was crazy.”

Marcus does no longer consider this was a second that was staged to move viral.

“After the woman ran up the stairs, the guy told my father, ‘Wow, I’m sitting here in front of 20,000 people without a shirt. This is pretty embarrassing.’ Right after this happened, the Florida Panthers scored a goal. The guy told my Dad, ‘Wow, this is really a bad omen.’”

Marcus’ father advised the younger guy that the lady would come again to him and say sure. The rejectee was no longer so certain.

“He was holding the ring. He was tearing up, and he was very embarrassed,” Marcus mentioned. “And then he just ran up the stairs with her purse — she left her purse there — and then we never saw them again.”

If this was certainly all a ruse, it was an excessively elaborate one.

“Some people on Twitter are saying she was already wearing a ring. If she was, I didn’t catch that,” Marcus mentioned.
