Midweek Madness - Vegas marriage proposal after win

As the USA Sevens neared completion this past weekend at the Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Samoa achieved a great win over New Zealand in the Cup final. The host team, the USA, did some celebrating of their own though.

It was Valentines Day, and it was in Vegas, so USA Sevens captain Kevin Swiryn felt it was the perfect moment to propose to his girlfriend, backed by his teamates after they'd just beaten France in the Bowl Final.

It was a pretty good win, beating the French 28-17 in front of 18 000 passionate fans, many of which were experiencing Sevens for the first time live, and certainly for the first time in the entertainment capital of the world.

''If you compare this to the first year it took place in L.A. and the first year it was in San Diego, I think Las Vegas blows it away,'' USA coach Al Caravelli said.

Samoa beat New Zealand 33-12 in the main comp, the Cup Final. We haven't yet featured highlights of that here on RD, but if you're interested, please post a comment below to let us know and we'll make a plan.

Mention should be made of another player, Marco Barnard, whose father sadly passed away earlier in the week. Barnard stuck with the side though, and he can be seen involved in the try at the beginning of this clip.

So after the USA beat France, emotions flowed as Swiryn interrupted the team talk to let the side know that he wants them with him for the big moment, along with a camera crew and the attention of the world. Needless to say, she said yes, and another first for rugby took place.

Only in Vegas.

  • I remember the day I proposed to my now ex wife. I did it in a lay-by near slough and she didn't even say yes just said 'go on then' the bitch. Ever since then it was ' you're not a real man you haven't even got a job you tosser when are you going to start earning some mone you nonce' every fucking day. Anyway she ran off with the guy who collects charitable donations from barnados who I actually thought had some kind of disability but clearly is more attractive than me. fucking whore!

  • Oli said.. what could she say. if she'd said no she would have been raped by a dozen rugby players after the game!

    Why would someone want to show what a complete moron he really is by making such an offensive unfunny comment? Just another idiot confirming the worst stereotypes that some people have about footballers of any sort. Rape is not funny you moron.

  • This is obviously a sensitive subject. Mark, how long ago was it you were ravaged by a 7s team?

    – no malice to who? It shows an attitude towards violence against women that's demeaning to women and to rugby. The "rape is a joke" mindset is inherently malicious.

  • You can watch the full game (actually the whole series) on demand on espn360.com. Now keep in mind that:
    i)You have to be in the US
    ii)Running windows or Mac
    iii)Have a supported ISP, or have a school or military associated IP address.
    The quality is amazing.

    On another note, that's soooo cuuute!! I really wish all the best for them. Sexy time!

  • Wo Mark. Seriously Chill out. Put a cap on any humour even rape and you're not allowing comedy to push boundaries and become more entertaining. Saw Brendon Burns at Edinburgh Festival and his main joke was about rape.....and everyone laughed.....because we're not uptight tits.......such as yourself. Spell it out? Ok! J.O.K.E...

  • Yeh, guys, tell that rape joke in front of people like Schalk Burger and im sure he will find it really hilarious!
