You may call him crazy but he could not wait for the game to finish and jumped in to the field to propose to his cheerleader girlfriend.

An airman who recently returned from the Middle East proposed to his cheerleader girlfriend during Sunday night's NFL game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Washington Redskins.

Cardinals squad member Claire Thorton was performing for fans at the home ground ahead of the fixture.

But the excitement of match day was stepped up a notch when her partner, Air Force Captain Erick Straub, marched onto the pitch, in full military attire, and got down on one knee and proposed.

Thankfully, Thorton said yes while her Cardinals side went on to win 30-20 in front of a packed crowd at the University of Phoenix Stadium.
