Former Spartans get engaged after Super Bowl
In one of the best sub-stories to the New York Giants’ Super Bowl win Sunday, former Michigan State linebacker Greg Jones had a ring before the night was over — just not a Super Bowl ring.
Jones dropped to a knee during the on-field celebration and proposed to his girlfriend Mandy Piechowski, a former Michigan State basketball player.
Jones and Piechowski met while at Michigan State, and have been dating for more than a year and a half.
The proposal was very a la Boise State running back Ian Johnson after the Broncos’ Fiesta Bowl win in 2007.
ESPN has a story with quotes, and also a photo gallery.
MLive.com also has a video from an Indianapolis-based marketing firm of the aftermath of the proposal.
