Quote of the Day: Brendan Ryan on his ring bearer, Felix Hernandez

7 Comments

If you’re into the sappy love stuff, there’s a story over at MLB.com about how the Mariners’ Brendan Ryan proposed to his girlfriend in Tokyo yesterday. Just … awwwwwww.

But the best part was when Ryan was talking about the logistics of his proposal. Specifically, how he got the rock over to Japan:

The hyperactive Ryan thought of everything on this one, even realizing he shouldn’t trust himself to bring the engagement ring with him to Japan.

“One of the smartest things I ever did was give that thing to Felix [Hernandez],” Ryan said, “because I figured if anybody was going to lose it, he could afford it.”

Once again, the burden falls on King Felix.
