lisha, Joe, and their friends played the game on the slippery ice. From the looks of the video posted on the Des Moines Buccaneers' Facebook page, everyone knew the goal of the game...to get lisha engaged! It's pretty funny to watch the acting skills unfold while sliding all over the ice. This proposal was truly a team effort!

The boisterous crowd at the Des Moines Buccaneers game went wild for the couple! You can tell lisha was unaware that Joe was planning this epic surprise. After expressing his love, lisha happily accepts Joe's marriage proposal! Joe even celebrates by gliding off the ice.

The Des Moines Buccaneers congratulated the newly engaged couple by defeating the Sioux City Musketeers in a shoot-out! It was a win-win for everyone at the Buccaneers Arena!

Congratulations to Joe and lisha! Happy wedding planning! Maybe trade heels for a pair of ice skates on your big day?

Have You Ever Explored the 'War Eagle Monument' on the South Dakota/Iowa Border?

Originally being from the Sioux City area, I grew up knowing about the War Eagle Monument perched on a bluff along I-29. There was at least one field trip for every kid in the area to the monument.

However, speaking with folks from Sioux Falls, they didn't seem to know what I was talking about. All they know about I-29 in Sioux City was that it was usually under construction.

When crossing into Iowa from South Dakota on I-29, look up!
