Default WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley helped me propose to my lady.

You can read all about it here.

One of the nicest guys I've ever spoken to. He complimented my writing and also shared it with 70,000 of his Facebook followers. Wow. Dude Love knows how to brighten this dude's life a bit. Enjoy.

There are few people amongst the pro wrestling community that are kind, generous and good human beings. Mick, of course, leads the way.

I'd say I was surprised he did it, but I'm not in the least. He's just a good person, though and through!

Much as it pains me to say, your proposal was much better than mine to my wife! That's just an awesomre way to propose, and an even better response from the future Mrs.!

Hope you two are together forever, long enough to see the WWE get back to quality wrestling (which could take a while!)

Congrats to you two!

Thanks a million! I had something planned with Jason Motte of the Cardinals but it fell through--he is also a really great guy.

Also, Mick did all of this while writing his speech AND while he was in a bad mood, thinking USA wasn't going to air his speech. If he did this while in a depressed state, I like to think rainbows and unicorns would have shot out of Socko had he been in a chipper mood. Really as nice as everyone says he is.

Very cool and congrats. Mick is a genuinely nice guy. He frequents Santas Village in Jefferson NH quite often. It is about 15 miles from where I grew up. My sister took my nephew one day and they met Mick. He was kind enough to take time from his family to take a picture with my nephew so they could send it to me as I am a Foley fan myself.

I will find the picture and post in next weekend when I get home.

I'm still trying to find the picture of me and Tony Atlas. That is one big dude. In the pic we are standing side by side and I am pointing to his guns with a look of awe on my face. The dude has big arms.

First, congrats on your proposal and taking that next big step in life.

Second, congrats on writing the article without using the obvious "taking the plunge" line;

I do my best to avoid common literary traps, but sometimes it's hard since they're ingrained in our culture. One of my favorite things about language is thinking about why we use the words and phrases we do. I debated "taking the plunge," but found it to sound almost negative; not quite "ball and chain"-negative, but it didn't have a very positive feeling to it, beyond the literary trope of it all.

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

Thanks guys. This happened on the day of the Boston bombing, which seemed bad after we found out, but I have come to think that perhaps it's best that way; you can't take in nothing but bad news all the time and be mentally healthy. I like to think that a happy story might make somebody's day a little bit brighter while they read it.
