These Never Get Old

A Philadelphia 76ers dancer got an unexpected surprise last Saturday night when the team’s mascot ran out onto the court with her boyfriend,┬áSergeant Elliot Burgos of the U.S. Army Reserve.

Angela Destasio, who is in her first year as a Sixers dancer, hadn’t seen her boyfriend in almost a year. He had been deployed in Kuwait and Jordan for 11 months and kept his return a surprise.

Angela was shocked, and with a full arena watching, she ran across the court to Elliot, who was carrying a bouquet of roses, and jumped into his arms. She said, “It was unbelievable — I thought I was dreaming. I was shaking, and my legs were trembling. I’m glad he caught me because I don’t know if I could’ve stood up.”
