Eugenie Bouchard Reveals If Twitter Fan Has Earned A Second Date


The Patriot’s turnaround wasn’t the only surprise at the Super Bowl, as one lucky fan happily discovered.

John Goehrke, a Patriots fan and one of Eugenie Bouchard’s thousands of Twitter followers, bet the professional Canadian tennis player the Pats would win.

The prize? A date with Bouchard herself.

The moment Tom Brady scored the winning touch down, the gambling pair’s Twitter conversation immediately went viral – and 22-year-old Eugenie stuck to her word.

Eugenie, who is currently ranked 47th in the world, and John spent a ‘romantic’ evening together.

They were hounded by the press as they watched the Nets take on the Milwaukee Bucks at New York’s Barclay Centre.

OMG ??? so honored to be in @si_swimsuit

The date was penned around Eugenie’s busy schedule; she was in NYC for commitments related to her recent Sports Illustrated pictorial.

Bouchard, true to form, shared precious little moments from her so-called Super Bowl date on social media.

On my super bowl twitter date ?

In one post, a bored and overwhelmed looking Goehrke claimed it was ‘the best date ever’ with what cynics might call a hint of dry sarcasm.

He says it's his best date ever! ?

However, Eugenie seemed pleasantly surprised to have enjoyed John’s company, telling TMZ she was relieved to find he was ‘normal’.

Asked by the TMZ reporter whether there would be a second date, Eugenie even responded, ‘For sure!’

It would be cool if this pairing turned out to be a romance for the digital age, and Josh proved that so-called ‘normal’ guys are just as attractive as professional athletes.

However, reports link Bouchard to Canadian hockey player, Jordan Caron.

Whatever the result of their meeting, I guess it goes to show that gambling on love sometimes pays off.
