One Milwaukee Brewers fan came up with a creative way to get Ryan Braun‘s attention. “Robin” put her cell phone number on a sign that read, “Marry Me Ryan”, and proudly displayed it at Friday night’s game at Miller Park.
Unfortunately, however, FOX Sports Wisconsin decided to show the sign during their broadcast coverage of the game. You can guess where this is going.
Suddenly, Robin’s phone was ringing off the hook…so much so that her voicemail box quickly reached capacity and she had to shut her phone off.
“It seemed like a good idea,” she said in an interview after the incident.
When asked when she might turn her phone back on, Robin replied, “Maybe next week when I get back to school.”
Here’s the kicker, though.
Braun, who is taken, heard about the sign after the game and actually tried to call Robin’s phone…but her voicemail box was full! Braun couldn’t even leave a message with an answer to the fan’s proposal.
“I guess it wasn’t meant to be,” said the NL Player of the Week.
