Woman trades engagement ring for Broncos-Chiefs tickets, buyer to propose with it
KANSAS CITY — A woman from the Kansas City suburbs recently posted a Craigslist ad offering to swap her wedding/engagement rings for tickets to the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Denver Broncos game this Sunday.
According to the Kansas City Star, the ad was answered last week by a Kansas City man who was planning to propose to his girlfriend.
He has also owned Chiefs season tickets for two decades.
Given the appraised value of the rings, $2,800, the man gave the woman tickets to a second Chiefs game, as well.
The woman received two tickets to the Nov. 24 Chiefs game against the San Diego Chargers and four tickets to the game against the Broncos in Kansas City that will take place a week later.
It was reported that the woman rings were from a previous marriage and had no emotional importance to her anymore.
She says she’s planning to give the tickets she received in the exchange to her current husband for his birthday.
The man said he’s planning on popping the question to his girlfriend during a party he’s holding at his house this Sunday for the first meeting between the Broncos and Chiefs.
