A Marriage Proposal For Memphis Fans

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

But at an NBA game, a woman was delighted when her boyfriend asked into a microphone, will you grit and grind with me forever and ever babe? "Grit and Grind" is the slogan for the Memphis Grizzlies. Deadspin reports the couple are big fans - apparently loyal in good times and in bad because the team this year is just awful. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
