    I said in an earlier thread today, “Go get ’em, Derek”; but damn, son.
    I’ve got my Wild Turkey here, ….a toast to the adorable couple.

    Correction – he “proposed marriage” according to Farnham. Did anyone else think that was weird when he said that a couple times? Clearly he is proposing marriage, he is on one knee with a ring!
