The NHL Sponsors A Lesbian Engagement

Yes.  You read that correctly.

Between the second and third periods of last Saturday's game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Ottawa Senators, a lesbian couple got engaged.  On the ice.  In front of a capacity crowd at Scotiabank Place.

Alicia (in the Maple Leafs jersey) was standing on the ice, blindfolded, when she was instructed to remove her blindfold and read the message on the scoreboard.  Moments later, her girlfriend, Christina (dressed in Senators apparel), walked onto the ice.  After hugging Alicia, she got down on one knee and proposed.

What followed is the most heartwarming video you'll see this month.

Something tells me we won't be seeing anything like this in the U.S. anytime soon.

Oh...the video of the proposal is from the NHL's website.  Cool, huh?
