VERSAILLES, Ky.—I know what you're thinking. I can hear the voices, see the comments and envision the eye-rolling and head shaking already. "Another Carson Wentz story, seriously? About his personal life, nonetheless?" The answer is yes, and yes. But please, bear with me here. This story has less to do with Wentz and everything to do with the historic, medieval-themed Kentucky venue in which he recently proposed to his now-fiancee, Madison Oberg, a Kentucky native.
