Guy Proposes to Girlfriend at Dan + Shay Meet & Greet!

Dec 15, 2014 -- 10:55am

 

 

A superfan of country duo Dan + Shay got the surprise of a lifetime at a recent show.
In the video above, an unidentified man is shown backstage at a recent concert, where he and his girlfriend have meet and greet passes.
“My girlfriend is obsessed with these guys, and I couldn’t think of a better time,” he begins.
“In a really good way!” she protests, laughing, before he reaches into his pocket and finishes, “I couldn’t think of a better time to actually do something kinda crazy.”
With that, he pulls out a ring and falls to one knee as the other people in the room begin to realize what’s happening and give a collective cheer.
“I am dying to call you my wife. Will you marry me?” he asks, and his stunned girlfriend quickly says yes. The couple make it official right there in the backstage as he slips the ring on her finger.
Dan + Shay wrapped up their most recent US tour on Thursday night (Dec. 11). They’ll kick off a new leg of their Where It All Began Tour in February.

NFL Suspends Adrian Peterson Without Pay for the Rest of Season

Nov 18, 2014 -- 9:48am

 

The NFL announced its highly anticipated ruling Tuesday morning, stating that the Minnesota Vikings star running back will not be considered for reinstatement before April 15, 2015, for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

 

MSA/Icon Sportswire
Adrian Peterson won't be eligible for reinstatement until April 15, 2015, the league announced Tuesday. Peterson will appeal immediately, a source said.
The NFL Players Association released a statement later Tuesday morning, announcing that it will appeal Peterson's suspension because "the discipline imposed is inconsistent."

Peterson was indicted in September on a felony charge of injury to a child for using a wooden switch to discipline his 4-year-old son earlier this year. But the All-Pro pleaded no contest to a lesser charge of misdemeanor reckless assault earlier this month, setting the stage for the NFL's ruling.

The league announced Peterson's suspension in a lengthy statement, citing "an incident of abusive discipline that he inflicted on his four-year-old son."

The statement also included excerpts of a letter to Peterson written by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who has required that Peterson undergoes counseling and treatment in order to be reinstated.

"We are prepared to put in place a program that can help you to succeed, but no program can succeed without your genuine and continuing engagement," Goodell wrote in the letter. "You must commit yourself to your counseling and rehabilitative effort, properly care for your children, and have no further violations of law or league policy."

Peterson's case revived a debate about corporal punishment, which is on the decline in the U.S. but still widely practiced in homes and schools. Peterson has repeatedly claimed that he never intended to harm his son and was disciplining him in the same way he had been as a child growing up in East Texas.

Goodell, however, expressed concern in his letter that Peterson does not "fully appreciate the seriousness of your conduct."

"You have shown no meaningful remorse for your conduct," Goodell's letter said. "When indicted, you acknowledged what you did but said that you would not 'eliminate whooping my kids' and defended your conduct in numerous published text messages to the child's mother. You also said that you felt 'very confident with my actions because I know my intent.'

"These comments raise the serious concern that you do not fully appreciate the seriousness of your conduct, or even worse, that you may feel free to engage in similar conduct in the future."

The boy suffered cuts, marks and bruising to his thighs, back and on one of his testicles, according to court records. Goodell cited those injuries in his letter to Peterson.

"The difference in size and strength between you and the child is significant, and your actions clearly caused physical injury to the child," Goodell's letter said. "While an adult may have a number of options when confronted with abuse -- to flee, to fight back, or to seek help from law enforcement -- none of those options is realistically available to a four-year old child.

"Further, the injury inflicted on your son includes the emotional and psychological trauma to a young child who suffers criminal physical abuse at the hands of his father."

The NFL stated that Peterson and the union did not provide the league with information that "would be relevant to evaluating Peterson's conduct." The league also claimed that Peterson, his representatives and the union would not participate in a disciplinary hearing that had been scheduled for last week.

The union responded with its statement, which cited a "credibility gap" within the NFL's disciplinary process.

"The decision by the NFL to suspend Adrian Peterson is another example of the credibility gap that exists between the agreements they make and the actions they take," the NFLPA statement said. "Since Adrian's legal matter was adjudicated, the NFL has ignored their obligations and attempted to impose a new and arbitrary disciplinary proceeding.

"The facts are that Adrian has asked for a meeting with Roger Goodell, the discipline imposed is inconsistent and an NFL executive told Adrian that his time on the Commissioner's list would be considered as time served. The NFLPA will appeal this suspension and will demand that a neutral arbitrator oversee the appeal. We call on the NFL Management Council to show our players and our sponsors leadership by committing to collective bargaining so a fair personal conduct policy can be implemented as quickly as possible."

Luke Bryan Breaks CMA Awards Record With 13 Second Hug

Nov 11, 2014 -- 10:49am

 

A lot of records were broken at last week's CMA Awards, including the longest televised hug in the event's history when Luke Bryan embraced his wife Caroline when he was named entertainer of the year.

It lasted 13 seconds. That may not seem like a long time, but go back in history to find a longer-lasting hug. You won't.

Even when Bryan, who could definitely be categorized as a hugger, wrapped his arms around Dierks Bentley and Garth Brooks, those were more of the bro-hug variety. And less than two seconds each.

But when Brooks called his name, Bryan embraced his wife like his life depended on it.

At the time, I wondered if he might skip his acceptance speech altogether and just stay right there in her arms with his face buried in the crook of her neck. After what seemed like a lifetime, Bryan finally let her go and walked to the stage for his first-ever acceptance speech at the CMA Awards.

Brooks, who hadn't graced the CMA Awards stage since 2005, told the crowd, "Yes, it's been a while, but you never forget the feeling of winning this award right here." Brooks would know. He won entertainer of the year four times -- in 1991, 1992, 1997 and 1998.

So after Bryan's two-second hug with Brooks, he made his way to the microphone to express his gratitude. But before he even said a word, he just stared at the seven pounds of handblown Italian crystal in his hands for a few seconds and then, as if the aforementioned hug was not enough to tell his wife how much she meant to him, he winked at her.

Other than the hug, that wink was the second best subtle moment of intimacy on television that night.

In fact, if there was a CMA Award for most genuinely loving spouse of the year, Bryan probably would've won that one, too.
