A Commonwealth Proposal

CineMate wish you a good afternoon from a bustling Glasgow City!

For our friends further afield the City Of Glasgow is host to the amazing Commonwealth games 2014 and if you’ve not checked it out yet we’re a little sad right now because you’ve been missing things… like being introduced to our happy but most prickly mascot Clyde.

Team Scotland

Not to mention all of the Games, entertainment and good spirt!!!

However something else has come out of the games. Something so sweet we just had to mention it. Scotland’s own Chris Pritchard, a cyclist of Team Scotland proposed to his Girlfriend Amanda after racing and winning bronze. A yes! Surely better than any medal!

We have to mention our favourite line though!

“Sir Chris Hoy later joked about how Pritchard managed to conceal the engagement ring.

The multiple Olympic champion said: “The race suits don’t have pockets, so I am not sure where he kept it.””
