What athletes have made game-day marriage proposals?

Houston Astros' Carlos Correa, and Miss Texas USA Daniella Rodriguez

Houston Astros' Carlos Correa, and Miss Texas USA Daniella Rodriguez

The most recent is Houston Astros' Carlos Correa, 23, who seamlessly segued from a postgame interview with FOX’s Ken Rosenthal to popping the question to Miss Texas USA Daniella Rodriguez following the team's win of the World Series.

But Correa isn’t the first to get down on one knee on national TV. The most famous on-field proposal came after the 2007 Fiesta Bowl, when Boise State’s Ian Johnson asked cheerleader Chrissy Popadics to marry him, following an overtime win over Oklahoma. In 2012, the New York Giants’ Greg Jones proposed to Mandy Piechowski after upsetting the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. And it’s not quite as romantic, but Joey Chestnut proposed to Neslie Ricasa prior to winning the 2014 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.
