The proposal story!Holiday getting hitched A year ago, Jrue Holiday travelled to Germany to take in the Women’s World Cup. The United States lost to Japan in a penalty shootout in the championship game. This past summer, Holiday traveled to London for the Olympic Games. This time, the United States women’s soccer team took home the gold. Holiday has a strong rooting interest in the red, white and blue squad. His girlfriend Lauren Cheney is a member of the national team. The two met during Holiday’s freshman year at UCLA and have been together ever since. Recently, the 22-year-old Holiday decided to take the next step. “I put it (engagement ring) in the clean clothes basket,” Holiday said, describing his marriage proposal here in Philadelphia. “She was going through the clothes and when she found it I was down on one knee. It was really the only thing to do. She was putting clothes away and I said I might as well slip it in there. It was pretty cheesy, but I am a romantic.” Cheney said yes, of course.
