Well this is cute. A cheerleading performance at half time of an NFL Arizona Cardinals game earlier this week was interrupted by Air Force Captain Erick Straub, who had recently returned from his duties in the Middle East, so that he could propose to his girlfriend.
The officer wore his full Air Force attire as he strolled onto the pitch in the middle of his girlfriend Claire Thorton’s cheer routine to get down on one knee. And by the looks of it, she was absolutely gobsmacked.
Claire, who cheers by night but is a first grade teacher by day, was surrounded by her team, who all looked just as emotional as she did, while her partner offered up the diamond ring he’d bought for her.
