Mere hours after last night’s crushing loss to the Yankees, Fenway Females were dealt another vicious blow. Boston women are reeling from this morning’s announcement that Boston’s most eligible bachelor, Sox GM Theo Epstein, is officially off the market. From the Boston Globe:
Theo Epstein, the boyish-looking Yale graduate who steered the Boston Red Sox to their first World Series championship in 86 years, is no longer a free agent, so to speak.
The general manager of the Red Sox and man-about-town staple of the city’s gossip pages has sent an e-mail to friends announcing that he is engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Marie Whitney, according to friends who received the private missive.
[...] The big ask apparently went down Sunday night, according to friends.
That night, the couple dined at Davio’s, a popular Italian restaurant in Park Square, where Epstein had made a reservation under a pseudonym.
Sometime after the couple left, Epstein, 32, apparently asked Whitney, 27, to marry him.
You gotta love the globe. “Apparently” went down. “Apparently” asked. Yeah, apparently! APPARENTLY according to the obscene rock weighing down her left hand, blinging all over Fenway Park last night! Maybe that’s why David Ortiz struck out four times. He was blinded by carats. Theo’s carats of love.
