Eureka City Councilmember Natalie Arroyo Proposed Marriage With the Help of Her Roller Derby Team
It was the final bout of the season.
After the junior team played, Arroyo and her teammates skated out to the sound of Erasure’s Always.While her teammates splashed out some moves on skates, Arroyo swooped around the track holding a sign backward. As she rolled past part of the crowd towards Lopiccolo, the crowd behind her could read the words and cheered. As she came close to him, she flipped the sign around so he could read it.
Lopiccolo said yes!
Then he was given a helmet and skates and he joined the team on the track.
Final Score: Love all…Oh, wait that’s tennis and this is roller derby but you get the idea.
To top off the night, Arroyo’s team won the final bout by a landslide. What a night to remember and a story to tell for generations!
Note: Instead of a ring, Arroyo presented Lopiccoco with a necklace with her thumbprint in one side and the Spanish word for heart, corazón, on the other side.
