On Wednesday night, the Houston Astros defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 7 of the 2017 World Series. As a result, the Astros claimed the first title in franchise history.
Afterward, shortstop Carlos Correa proposed to his girlfriend, thus adding two milestone rings to his name in, oh, about 10 minutes' time:
SHE SAID YES! Congratulations, @TeamCJCorrea! pic.twitter.com/SN5ISx2ydC— Houston Astros (@astros) November 2, 2017
Predictably, Twitter had some questions about Correa's timing, as well as his Plan B -- you know, in case the Astros had lost. Here's a few of our favorite offerings from the night:
were they gonna break up if the Astros lost— Rodger Sherman (@rodger_sherman) November 2, 2017
Carlos Correa just proposed to his girlfriend after the Astros win. Very touching. What if they lost? Does he propose at a Houston IHOP? pic.twitter.com/GdGCxXxC4v— Mike Wise (@MikeWiseguy) November 2, 2017
If Correa didn't use the World Series ring he just won to propose, is it really love?— Trevor Sikkema (@TampaBayTre) November 2, 2017
Does Carlos Correa propose if the Astros lose? "Hey, um, here's this big ass rock but I gotta go shower." #WorldSeriesGame7— Jason Smith (@howaboutafresca) November 2, 2017
What if the Astros lost? Was Correa not going to propose? Where was the ring all night? Hate the stadium proposal. Sorry.— Evan Cohen (@EvCoRadio) November 2, 2017
Anyway, congratulations to the Correas on their special night.
