EUGENE, Ore. — Many people predicted the ducks would come out victorious Saturday, but there was one big surprise during halftime one fan didn’t expect.
A dream came true for a woman in Section 26 that afternoon. Boyfriend and now fiance Ray Hamness has been planning how to pop the question for the last month, ultimately, deciding on a grand gesture in front of thousands of duck fans.
Surprised girlfriend DeLise Perrotte said, “I saw him when he had the box and I’m like, ‘He’s gonna ask me to marry him.’ But then I didn’t…I was like…I couldn’t get the yes out, though, that’s exactly what I’ve always wanted to say to him if he asked me to marry him.”
The two have known each other for 30 years and say they’re looking forward to spending the rest of their lives together.
