VIDEO: There Was a Same-Sex Proposal on the Court at Bulls-Spurs

A male couple got engaged on the court at the United Center today during Bulls-Spurs:

Sean Highkin, a Bulls reporter for The Athletic, is in the building and tells The Big Lead that the couple kissed, it was all positive reaction from the crowd, and that it went over very well.

Two women got engaged at the Olympics in Rio; has a same-sex proposal ever occurred before at a major American sporting event?

UPDATE: An answer to that question arrived — last December, two women got engaged at an Atlanta Hawks game.
