It’s only fitting that Angels star Mike Trout, a guy who’s obsessed with airplane emojis, would involve an aircraft in the biggest decision of his life.

Trout proposed to his girlfriend in Boston this weekend, after the two spent some time with their families, and hired a sky-writer to write the message in the sky. His girlfriend said yes!

We all know Trout, the man who can accomplish anything, could have done this himself, but it’s simply not possible to be both on the ground and in the air at the same time.

As a man who’s also in love with weather, I’m sure Trout wasn’t exactly thrilled there was no cloud cover.
