'Couple' captured on 'kiss cam,' man holds up paper instead

It was Valentine's Day and the "kiss cam" was scanning for lovestruck fans attending the Minnesota Gophers vs. Michigan Wolverines mens hockey game at the Mariucci Arena in Minneapolis. Then, it zeroed in on a "couple."

According to the UK's Daily Mail, "The 'kiss cam' is a tradition from the early 1980s, invented as a way to entertain the crowd during pauses in baseball games. It is now a tradition in a majority of major arena sports in the U.S. and Canada."

In the 35-second "kiss cam" video, the unidentified duo look on with blank stares. But wait, when they realize that they're on the Jumbotron the man reaches for his pocket. Will we see a "kiss cam" Valentine's Day proposal?

Just before the video reaches its end, after fidgeting with the paper (as the woman continues to uncomfortably look around), the man holds it up.
