Woman flips the bird in couple's proposal photos
WTOP Sports ^ | Thursday - 9/26/2013, 2:58pm ET | Mike Murillo

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.

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....

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!

lolololol

It's sort of rude to get in somebody's face and take a picture that they're obviously going to be in without their consent.

You gotta expect that they might be rude back.

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.

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.

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.

I will make two statements about the white-haired crone. I defy you to deny either:

1) She voted for Obama, proudly, in 2008 and 2012.

2) She hasn't had it since 'Sputnik'.

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.

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.

They told her a proposal was happening behind her, but she wanted to watch the game and the photographer was in the way.

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...

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.

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.
