MIAMI – A Miami Heat fan who was named the team's "Designated Driver of the Season" proposed to his girlfriend during an interview with Local 10 News ahead of Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs.
Gerald Mitkowski, of North Bay Village, was selected from more than 2,000 Heat fans registered as designated drivers during the team's regular season. He was given two tickets to Tuesday night's game.
During an interview with Local 10 News anchor Eric Yutzy, Mitkowski was so overcome with excitement he popped the question to his now fiance, Estrella.
"In fact, I'm so happy that right now, in front of the world, will you be my wife?" Mitkowski said, while still on camera.
The couple had been married in the past and Mitkowski decided it was time to officially give it another shot.
Estrella agreed, sharing a kiss with her fiance for the camera.
