The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period. NEW YORK -- In the end, Andrew Fox wasnt charged with an error.The 29-year-old had everything he needed to make one of lifes biggest decisions on Tuesday night: the engagement ring, the perfect woman and a beautiful night at Yankee Stadium, which focused a camera on the couple and broadcast the big moment on the center field video board.What the New Castle, Pennsylvania, resident didnt have was steady hands.When Fox pulled the precious item from his pocket and dropped to one knee before 29-year-old girlfriend Heather Terwilliger to propose during the fifth inning, the ring dropped to the ground in section 228 of the ballparks second deck.The crowd gasped and then jeered the fumble. Fox and Terwilliger scrambled to find the symbolic jewelry, the search televised between pitches by the Yankees YES Network. The hunt went on for approximately five tense minutes as Fox began to cry, fearing the ring was lost. Several other fans joined the search, rooting around on the ground and under the seats.I opened the ring box and got on my knee and as soon as I opened it just fell and we couldnt find it for the longest time, Fox said.dddddddddddd.Finally, Terwilliger looked down and saw something shiny in the cuff of her pants leg.Everyone was trying to help us find it and it ended up being in her pants leg, like the bottom of it, Fox said.Terwilliger, who is from Fredonia, New York, gave him a big kiss after receiving the ring.Fox took Terwilliger to the game as a belated present for her Sept. 21 birthday, with Fox wearing a Mariano Rivera No. 42 jersey and Terwilliger sporting Derek Jeters No. 2.The couple, which had its first date Feb. 1, planned to maybe go to Times Square after the game -- Terwilliger has never seen it at night.Yankee Stadium public address announcer Paul Olden informed the crowd the ring had been found.
