Karen and Ralph met November 4th, 1995 at the Spectadium Sports Bar and Grill. They were both there to root on their team:

Karen Michigan State University     Ralph Univeristy of Michigan
Opposites Attract.

Several improbable events conspired to put these two together. First, Karen going to Spectadium, a place she had never been, to watch the game. Second, Ralph and friends mistakenly seated by the Hostess in the MSU section of the bar - next to Karen and her friend Therese. Third, MSU actually winning the game - a rare event indeed. If Michigan had won the game - Karen never would have gone out with Ralph.
Ralph proposed to Karen September 26, 2000 at the top of the Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel Tower has long been a favorite of Karen's - though before this date she had never been there. What an introduction!
