Proposal on the Astrodome Jumbotron:

During Monday night’s 7-0 loss to the Nationals at Minute Maid Park, a fan failed in his public attempt at asking his girlfriend to marry him, the Houston Chronicle reported on its Web site.

With the couple on display on the stadium’s jumbotron, the male fan got down on one knee to present the ring. The woman, wearing a replica Astros jersey, appeared to dump a bag of popcorn on the man before hastily making her way up the stairs amid a chorus of boos, the newspaper reported.

The man left after the top of the sixth inning, cheered and consoled by an apparently sympathetic crowd.
