LGBT Love And Proposal Take Center Court At Bulls Game.

If you have the cajones to propose to someone, do you choose to do it in front of a crowd?

When you are in love, sometimes you do crazy things.  Jake Conrad enlisted the help of friends and ... oh ... just an NBA basketball team to propose to his boyfriend Michael Holtzman.

The engagement was a few days in the making. Jake Conrad took to Facebook earlier this week to begin the planning of a very special engagement he was ready to propose to his boyfriend, Michael Holtzman.





Bulls spokesman Ross Lipschultz sent Outsports this statement:

“At the Chicago Bulls game vs. the San Antonio Spurs on December 8, the Bulls worked with Jake Conrad to set up an in-game proposal for his partner, Michael Holtzman. Michael has been a lifelong Bulls fan and watches every game. After he once told Jake that his dream was to go to a Bulls game, Jake knew he wanted to propose to Michael at a game to show him how committed he is to making Michael’s dreams come true.

“Jake bought tickets to the game and contacted the Bulls to purchase a fan experience package to propose before the game. The Bulls were touched by Jake and Michael’s story and wanted to make the experience extra special, so they asked Jake if he would be open to proposing during the game. Once Jake agreed, the team worked with him to set up a proposal during a timeout involving Benny the Bull and the Luvabulls. The Chicago Bulls are honored to have been part of such a special moment for this couple.”

So the Bulls weren’t just bystanders, they were very active in making this happen. So cool. -


Bravo Bulls and congrats Jake and Michael!
