When I started dating Becca just shy of two years ago, I was sure to contact the Twins Geek, John Bonnes, who like me is a Minnesota native and fan, while his wife (like Becca) is from Philadelphia and an unabashed backer of the Eagles, Phillies, etc. John's advice to me? "Get through a whole Flyers season before you propose."
Now, the NHL was in lockout last year, so that bought me some time. But the season began as scheduled last fall, and the Flyers were eliminated from the playoffs about a month ago. So in the clear, finally, I asked Becca to marry me on Monday, and she said yes. We're planning a wedding for next May, here in Philadelphia.
Don't expect this to suddenly become a "groomblog," but I will share whatever interesting stories come out of the process, such as my attempts to get Becca to walk down the aisle to the "She's Your Queen" song from "Coming to America."Posted by Stephen Silver at June 16, 2006 12:04 PM
