A young man at a recent Colorado Rockies game proposed to his girlfriend and brought a professional photographer along for the ride. It was a touching moment, as the man’s girlfriend said yes and everyone in the surrounding area was overcome with the cuteness.
Everyone except for an angry ol’ grandma, that is.
The elderly woman flipping the bird in the foreground of the above photo apparently wasn’t too pleased that the photographer was blocking her view of her precious Rockies.
As the special moment unfolded, Mullins says she continued to receive nasty stares from the older couple, whose view she obstructed.
“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.
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.
