Greg Altringer of Great Falls had a surprise in store for his girlfriend Erica Kresge when they went to the Cubs baseball game at Wrigley Field in Chicago.
Greg had arranged for one of the large electronic billboards to post the message "ERICA, WILL YOU MARRY ME?"
One problem: when the message flashed, Erica wasn't there to see it - she had gone to get some beverages.
Greg was dismayed that she wasn't there to see her name literally in lights, but it worked out OK.
When Erica returned to her seat, Greg resorted to the time-honored routine of dropping to one knee and proposing to Erica - in front of thousands of cheering fans.
Erica said yes.
