Rays' Alex Cobb Uses Dolphin to Blow Away Girlfriend with Brilliant Proposal

Alex Cobb just put himself atop the early list for the best marriage proposal of 2014.

The Tampa Bay Rays pitcher got help from a dolphin at Discovery Cove in Orlando, Fla., in pulling off a spectacular proposal. When the dolphin surfaced to meet Cobb's girlfriend, Kelly, it held a buoy in its mouth which read "Kelly, will you marry me?"

Not a chance she could turn that down.

Even though that was a well-planned proposal, Cobb still did it the old-fashioned way of getting down on one knee afterward.
