Tennis star Eugenie Bouchard honours Super Bowl blind date bet


Genie Bouchard wasn't on her own in thinking Super Bowl LI was as good as settled at half-time.

The 22-year-old tennis star originally tweeted that she knew the Atlanta Falcons would win Super Bowl 51 on February 5th...during the second quarter.

At one point, during a Snapchat video, Bouchard asked Goehrke how the date was going and the 20-year-old responded as you'd expect.

She flew Goehrke out to NY, put him up in a hotel and the pair attended a Brooklyn Nets game for their "first date".

The Patriots eventually took a 34-28 win, with comeback star Tom Brady winning his fourth ring.

She uploaded a photo on Twitter with her "Super Bowl Date" on their way to a basketball game between Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks at the Barclays Center.

Another important lesson here, besides never betting against Brady, is that the internet can really do anything.

Peru ex-president Alejandro Toledo faces arrest on bribery charges
Toledo made two unsuccessful bids for a second presidential term in 2011 and 2016 and had not ruled out a third attempt in 2021. The company admitted handing out to a total of US$29 million in bribes for unnamed officials in Peru from about 2005 to 2014.

"The most incredible part is that she agreed to it without knowing who I was", he said.

Bouchard had tweeted that she “knew Atlanta would win” with the Falcons holding a big lead over the Patriots during the NFLs championship game.

Genie Bouchard's admirer is stooping a bit lower in the game of choice for their fortuitous date.

"So I thought, 'Oh, my God, he's one of those super fans".

The date with student John Goehrke was covered by reporters and when asked how it was going, Bouchard replied, "It's going great".

She must be fierce charming because Goehrke claimed it was the best date he'd ever been on.

"I just thought to myself it's not over".
