Diehard Washington Redskins fan Travis Funkhouser found a way to incorporate his favorite NFL team with a wedding proposal during a recent family Christmas gathering.Funkhouser, 29, reportedly spent weeks to plan the football-themed proposal, and even roped in a few friends and family to carry it out, as well.From the Washington Post:Funkhouser decided to use his family’s holiday Secret Santa tradition to pop the question to his girlfriend, Laura Begosh, also 29. He ponied up $90 for a custom “Marry Me” Redskins jersey and arranged for a friend to bring it as a gift contribution. Funkhouser rigged the numbers of the gift exchange so that Begosh would pick last, and then had a different friend switch gifts with her so that the wrapped jersey would end up with his bride-to-be.“I was afraid something would go wrong,” said Funkhouser, while explaining the complicated proposal process. “I was more nervous that someone would mess up than anything else.”The plan was executed perfectly as Funkhouser's girlfriend of four years said "yes" after being presented with a 1.06 karat diamond ring.The happy couple have yet to set a date for their big day, but Funkhouser did throw in the following nugget when asked about whether or not their wedding would have a Redskins-theme.“I wouldn’t be opposed to that,” Funkhouser laughed. “But we’ll probably go a more traditional route. Unless Dan Snyder calls me tomorrow and says, ‘You can have your wedding in my stadium whenever you want.’”
