    Our Proposal: The World's Most Famous Arena


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Having always been an avid Knicks fan, Magz3nj says her now husband thought it would be special to propose to her during the game. "What's so great about our proposal is that we have a wonderful story to tell our three sons! There is something about having your love declared out there for everyone to see," she says. "At half time the jumbotron flashed many things, but then came the beautiful proposal. Michael said, look up, someone is proposing and I actually read it and said, "oh how nice." I didn’t even realize it was for me! By the time I realized it, Michael was out in the aisle on one knee. It was so surreal!"

    It was March 20, 1998.. Madison Square Garden during a New York Knicks Game!! The Christmas prior my "boyfriend" had bought me Knicks tickets for Christmas. I was thrilled... being a HUGE fan of the Knicks!! Michael set up the whole proposal with the people at the Garden. It was half-time during the game and there it was... up on the jumbotron, the sweetest proposal!! I was SHOCKED!! What an amazing feeling to have his love displayed for me infront of 60,000 plus people!! Michael still did a traditional proposal, by going on one knee in the aisle. His words were beautiful, and at that moment it felt like we were the only one's there!!! What better way to get engaged than at Madison Square Garden!!! It was awesome and a memory I will never forget!!
