We’ve all heard the story by now, or at least bits and pieces of it. It was the online sports bet of the century. Canadian tennis star Genie Bouchard bragged that the Falcons would win Super Bowl LI. In the end, she lost an online sports bet via Twitter in which she said she would go on a date with a young college student – and obvious Patriots fan – if New England came back to win.
At the time the innocent but boastful wager was made, the Atlanta Falcons were leading the New England Patriots by a very lop-sided score of 21-0. QB Matt Ryan and RB Devonta Freeman dominated the offensive side of the game, while the Patriot’s couldn’t put anything together to overcome the Falcon’s mighty defense.
At that point, Genie posted on Twitter that she knew the Atlanta Falcons would be victorious. In response, 20 year old Patriots fan John Geohrke, suggested that, if Tom Brady were to mount another one of his epic comebacks – something he’s done time and again throughout his career – she should go on a date with him.
Entirely confident that the Falcons had the Super Bowl all wrapped up, she cheekily agreed.
Oh, what a mistake that was! The Patriots began slowly clawing back into contingency in the third quarter, then outscored the Falcons 17-0 in the fourth to tie it up and throw the game into overtime.
As we all know, the Patriots went on to win Super Bowl LI 34-28.
To Date, Or Not To Date…
22 year old Genie Bouchard, currently ranked the 44th best tennis player in the world, was quite possibly more shocked than anyone. “Omfg”, she tweeted as the Patriots scored the game winning touchdown. That was quickly followed by another sentiment, “Lesson learned. Never bet against Tom Brady”.
But I’m happy to report, she was neither a sore loser nor one to renege on a bet. Just 10 days after the shocking game ended, she hinted that she might be honoring the online sports bet with Geohrke.
Yesterday morning, the Canadian tennis star tweeted, “Busy day with @si_swimsuit and then tonight… I’m going on a date.”
Hours later, the first pictures showed up on the social media site, confirming her payment of the unusual debt.

She followed that up with a short comical video of John and herself, seated courtside at the game. (Yeah, she secured some nice tickets, too!) Then, as the evening came to an end, a final picture appeared on her Twitter, this time showing the young college student giving her a kiss on the cheek just before they parted.
Match Made In Heaven?
Are the adorable couple meant to bet? They sure looked cute together in all those pictures, and I’m sure much of the world would love to see this turn into a magical love story. Imagine the story they’d tell their grand-kids one day? But we’ll just have to wait and see if anything else happens from here.
In an interesting twist, TMZ intercepted the beaming couple on their way out of Barclays Center in New York City to snag a quick interview. Both seemed in good spirits throughout the chat, which ended with the reporter asking if there might be another date in their future.
To the grinning delight of John, Genie immediately replied, “For sure!”
