WASHINGTON - As far as Molly Ryan knew, she was headed to Coors Field in Denver with her family to see the Rockies take on the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Ryan's parents and her boyfriend, Kenny Lovelace, knew this was more than just a family outing. This was the night Lovelace was going to ask Ryan to become his wife.
Ryan said "yes" and fans nearby cheered for the couple -- everyone but the older couple, that is.
They continued to look unamused by the event. In fact, unbeknownst to Mullins, another woman who was there with them retrieved a security guard because she couldn't get back to her seat.
Mullins says when the security guard arrived, the big moment was over and she happily moved out of the trio's way.
It wasn't until the next day that Mullins realized the unhappy couple left their mark on the photos.
"In about 20 of them, she and her friend are giving me the stink eye," she says.
Then she saw one photo that she couldn't believe. In it, the older woman appears to be giving the one-finger salute to the camera.
"When I first saw the image I laughed, but then I was terrified you know, wondering what the couple was gonna think," Mullins says.
To Mullins' surprise, the bride-to-be was elated.
"I couldn't stop laughing. I said it was the greatest photo I've ever seen," Ryan says.
She says it was a picture that showed a wide range of emotions.

That’s awesome. Now I hope one of those public proposals happens near me, I’ve got a plan.
Some people are just DUMB like that.
Their fear combined with their arrogance assumes that it is THEY who are the focus.
it would never occur to such people to EXAMINE what might be going on adjacent to their exalted location...in any given environment..
hey now this woman is a FAMOUS dumb person....
What a bitch
The public marriage proposals are a bit silly, but that sour faced drab flipping the bird looks like my mother in law.
They told her a proposal was happening behind her, but she wanted to watch the game and the photographer was in the way. Not everybody feels like being caught up in somebody else’s moment. And some folks just like spreading the bah humbug.
I wonder if the old lady even knew what was going on behind her.
Hey - If someone was taking a picture of me (I thought) without asking - they might get the bird too!
The creature bears a striking resemblance to my late mother-in-law.
You gotta expect that they might be rude back.
Dollars to donuts a NObama voter and good chance a California transplant.
Thats awesome. Now I hope one of those public proposals happens near me, Ive got a plan.
OK, just don’t be a Weiner and text us the results.
some folks just like spreading the bah humbug.
AMEN and Dont I know that.
Recently I was hoping to make a few photographs of what appeared to be a fairly talented classical guitarist performing in a public park. When I approached his position he flipped me off.
California transplants seem to be all over Colorado, Texas and Arizona. Some parts of these states have become indistinguishable from Southern Californian cities from what I have heard and read. And Virginia and other Southern states are dealing with the same thing with regards to New England transplants.
All class, that one. Not.
Nobody should expect privacy because they are out in public.
With any luck it’ll make the news and I won’t have to text anybody.
Please. One of you do the honors.
Why would you want to do that?
She thinks they’re number one in the nation!
I assume you mean the photographer who kept several people from watching the game and even kept one person from even returnig to her seat untill Security was involved.
So yeah. The photographer - What a bitch.
Old women today (myself included) aren’t the polite demure ladies that our mothers and grandmothers were. I had a 65+ year old woman chew me out and use the f... word for parking too close to her.
Maybe this woman was unaware of what was going on behind her and thought she was the center of attention and she didn’t like it.
If you are 100% sure, post it, if not, fuggetaboutit.
OK, then. Just don’t be calling us for bail money neither.
Because they’re in my way. Because they’re being noisy. Because when you make a spectacle of yourself doing private stuff out in public you should expect the unexpected. And most importantly, why not.
1) She voted for Obama, proudly, in 2008 and 2012.
2) She hasn't had it since 'Sputnik'.
It’s important to know the local line between poor taste and illegal, and only cross that line when there’s a clear getaway path and no traceability.
I think we found her husband.
No the stupid old women
And you - Oh Great Mr. Mataz - are making it your mission to rectify #2.
(am I right?)
Well played, Sir. Well played indeed.
and why not? How about because it's crude and vulgar? Generally folks who were raised right by their mothers try to avoid being crude and vulgar in public.
ar ar ar... scatology joke!
You don’t get it, do you?
If YOU paid $100 for a seat to see a game and some clown kept you away and wouldn’t let you even sit down - or got in your face to take dozens of pictures and you couldn’t see the game - you wouldn’t have a problem with that?
Of course you would.
Generally people who were raised right don’t get waste the time and money of a bunch of people in a location for a particular reason by getting them all involved in their private business. They were holding up the works so long somebody got security so they could get back to their seat. They got in everybody else’s way and now are surprised that at least one of them found the proceedings and them annoying.
The big question here is whether they did the proposal between innings or while the ball was in play. If it was between innings, the old battle-axe needs to chill out. If the game was going on, I'm with her all the way.
Took my niece and her boys last month to Fenway Park. I was in Boston on business, hadn't been to the "home team" park in years, and we were lucky to get seats on 5 hours notice. We were sitting in the bleachers at about $75/tickets.(Another story for another day). Anyhow, about 3 rows in front of us was a batchelorette party of about 5 or 6, who would jump up and drink and dance and whatever, but between innings. My nephews thought it was cool seeing some well built young ladies parading around (hey, they're teenage boys!). When the game started, the girls would sit down and watch the game or at least let everyone behind them do so, no harm no foul.
However, About 10 seats away was some obnoxious "fan" who spent a little too much pre-game time at the "Cask and Flagon" and was well oiled before the game started. Well, he was getting in people's face, causing a ruckus and being a real jerk, all while the game was going on. Needless to say, those people unfortunate to be sitting close by him were ready to do some unmentionables to the guy, but, lucky for him, about 6 sailors sitting in the next section came over to explain a few things to him. Not to mention checking on the young ladies...
I guess my point is that, while in general the woman was probably behaving boorishly, there may be some extenuating circumstances involved...
It’s a Lazamataz thing.
But what else would you do with #2 but rectify it?
Or if your running for a democratic office.
Then you should cross that line and often.
I do GET IT and the old woman is is bitch
Is that Hillary without her make-up?
Anyone taking a picture with me in it would be punished by having a picture of me.
“The creature bears a striking resemblance to my late mother-in-law.”
Now cut that out!!(From a ticked off mother-in-law.)
Apparently the photographer was at it long enough that somebody trying to get back to their seat got security.
And really the photographer’s attitude shows exactly why she earned herself a bird: “They kept yelling at me and I just ignored them because I was there to do a job and I did not want to miss something that would be so brief and so important,” Mullins says.
If you got it - you would have figured out my points are NOT about the old lady. But the photographer.
What are your comments about her?
Or the photographer is:
“They kept yelling at me and I just ignored them because I was there to do a job and I did not want to miss something that would be so brief and so important,” Mullins says.
And keep in mind this “brief” event took so long somebody got security so they could get back to their seat that was being blocked. When you decide you’re more important than the people around you don’t be surprised when they rebut.
I would have to question her taste.
I just love how some people don’t even hide the fact that they are corrupt-hearted jerks...
