Philly man proposes to girlfriend at Saturday's snowy Army-Navy game

Few things go together like a massive sports event and inclement weather. Well, except maybe a massive sports event in inclement weather that also features a heartwarming marriage proposal. Enter Saturday's annual Army-Navy Game. 

Katie Dennis and Jared Wilson are engaged to be married after Saturday's festivities, with Wilson proposing via the Navy cheerleaders, among which Dennis counts herself. And, as far as a proposal song goes, it doesn't get much better than Bruce Channel's classic "Hey Baby." All the better if you've got a gaggle of a cheering section belting it out for all of Philadelphia to hear.

She said "yes," of course, and Wilson says via his YouTube page that he "couldn't be happier." Though, to be fair, how much the Navy win played into that mindset isn't clear. Check out the video below:
