Daily Blitz: Feb. 14


No matter what you do today, it won't top Greg Jones.

On the field of Lucas Oil Stadium following his team's Super Bowl victory, he got a ring and gave a ring, proposing to his girlfriend.

The fellow Michigan State alum – and collegiate athlete – said yes.

And in a single act, the rookie linebacker set the bar so high that on a day like this one -- Valentine's Day – not even he will be able to outdo himself.

As for the ring, Jones had practice squad tight end Christian Hopkins hold onto it while he went out and played in the biggest game of his career. The stunt caught Piechowski, who played basketball for the Spartans, completely off-guard and fell into tears as Jones proposed.

"Yes, all my teammates from State are making fun of me for my face," she was quoted as saying in the Detroit Free Press. "I was already bawling because they had just won the Super Bowl, so it was overwhelming. He was laughing at me for crying."**

Chief executive of MetLife Stadium will become president of Jacksonville Jaguars**

Mark Lamping spent four years supervising what would be become MetLife Stadium and helped attract Super Bowl XLVIII to the area.

Co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch along with Jets chairman and chief executive officer Woody Johnson offered a joint statement on Lamping's departure.

"Mark joined our team in 2008 as construction on our new home in the Meadowlands was just beginning, and in many ways, he helped to guide the building of our stadium.  From the onset, as home to two NFL franchises, our stadium project was unlike any other and Mark's guidance and business expertise were critical to our success.  We will always be grateful for his invaluable leadership."
