"That threw me for a loop," Clanton told the Morning News on Tuesday.
When she packed up her ex-fiance’s belongings, she said she left him a note on top of them, telling him that he was missing out on the seats in Section C114.
Instead of her fiancé, Clanton took her best friend to the game. She also took her sign, dotted with hashtags like #ESPN, #MNF and #nothing in common. The last hashtag was a swipe at her former lover, whose reason for breaking up was that the couple “had nothing in common.”
A former high school cheerleader, Clanton said she knew how to make a sign that would get attention. The white feather boa that framed the poster was a nice touch, too.
"I decided to have some fun with it, this was my little get-back to him,” she told the Morning News. “I thought this might show up on the JumboTron or TV broadcast and I knew (my ex) would be watching the game.”
The man’s reaction has yet to be recorded, but Clanton said she was surprised at the “overwhelming” attention she received on social media. There were many positive responses and a few negative comments, too. Clanton, however, chalked up the evening as an amazing experience and enjoyed her seats as Dallas won 42-21 against Detroit.
"Just being in the seats I was in, I had never been that close before," she told the Morning News. "I've been a huge sports fan my whole life and that was a whole new world."
