Couple Gets Engaged At DU Hockey Game

(above) Gerina shows off the Bling

Two Pioneer hockey fans were engaged on Saturday evening at Magness Arena between the second and third periods. A.J. Nittman and Gerina Wing of Longmont, Colorado are the happy couple at center of this photo surrounded by special people in the couple's life.

Naturally A.J. proposed in the "standing room only" area behind Section 18.

There was a lot of surprise and copious tears from her when he popped the question with a diamond ring, and she said 'yes.'

According to A.J., some months ago the couple was talking about potential engagement sites when Gerina suggested that she hoped A.J. would pop the question at a DU hockey game someday. That dream came true on Saturday.

Reportedly the couple reads LetsGoDU. Congrats!

Thank God A.J. didn't pop the question on Friday night, during DU's dreadful loss. You don't want to burden a marriage with that type of baggage.

Many years from now A.J. can tell any DU fan he popped the question minutes after Makowski's goal. :-)

Good Karma.

Congrats! Agreed that DU scoring and winning the game can have some good karma.

Cograts! that was a cool moment. Was standing right there and got to witness it.

If DU plays with half the emotion that Gerina displayed, we will have a very successful season :-)
