BROOKLYN (CBSMiami/AP) — Tweeting at a beautiful star athlete never worked out better. For anyone.
Genie Bouchard kept her word after the Atlanta Falcons lost the lead.
The Canadian tennis star and now swimsuit model sat courtside at a Brooklyn Nets game Wednesday night with a fan who asked her for a date on Twitter if the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl.
Bouchard tweeted during the Super Bowl that she knew the Falcons would win. A fan named John Goehrke responded to her by writing “if patriots win we go on a date?” and she responded “Sure.”
The Falcons then blew a 25-point lead as the Patriots rallied to win in overtime and Bouchard agreed to keep her word.
In New York for ceremonies tied to the “Sports Illustrated” swimsuit issue, in which she appears, she met Goehrke earlier Wednesday.
They sat together for the game against the Bucks and came on the court and threw some souvenir balls into the stands.
The pair appeared to have a good time, and Bouchard was still thinking about the date on Thursday morning as evidenced by another tweet.
