The Ladies Love Andrew McCutchen

OhmyGod! OhmyGod! OhmyGod!

It's pretty safe to say that beginning Wednesday at (check local listings), Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen will become the favorite baseball player among many a lady.

You see, the reigning National League MVP dropped to a knee and, you guessed it, popped the question to his girlfriend Maria Hanslovan during a taping of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show".

“I always envisioned that I would be on the highest mountain in the world and that my voice would be as loud as a lion’s roar — times a billion — so the whole world could hear me, just to tell you how much that I love you," McCutchen said.  “I didn’t do any of this for the publicity, I didn’t do any of this for the recognition. I did this to show you that if I could tell the whole world how much I love you, I would do that.”

All together now…awwwe.

One last note.  I'm not sure if the couple needs one, but if I might suggest a ring bearer…I can get you in touch with this little rascal.  Just sayin'.
