Mike McCarthy: Engagement with photography


Green Bay Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy isn’t known for his photography skills, but the coach who was on vacation this past week got a chance to bone up on his shutter snapping abilities.

That’s because when he was stopped this past week by a couple on a beach looking for someone to take their picture, he got a different surprise. After having their picture taken with McCarthy, the couple, Abigail Kobriger and Tim Schlosser, asked McCarthy if he would take their picture. McCarthy, who obliged, then saw Schlosser drop to one knee and pop the question to Kobriger.

Abigail Kobriger, left, had her photograph taken with Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy.

Schlosser, in an interview with WTMJ, said McCarthy “In his cool voice” could only say “This is cool. This is really cool.”

You can hear McCarthy saying that, can’t you?

But McCarthy wasn’t done as the photographer then went crazy and snapped about 30 more pictures of the couple as they celebrated on the beach.

Recalling later what had happened that day, Krobriger said, “It’s still very emotional.”

And no doubt, the coach who is working on his suntan before having to head back to Green Bay to prepare for the upcoming draft, thought it was a pretty “cool” moment, too.

Though there was no mentions in the story, we wonder if Schlosser and Krogriger may have asked the coach the big question that’s on all Packers minds these days: “Who’s going to be the Packers number one pick in the draft?”

If they did pop that question to the coach, it was the question that Schlosser popped on that day that will live long in their memories for many years to come.

Good luck to the happy couple … and coach McCarthy? Get back here so we can get on with the draft!
