When Canadian tennis player Eugenie Bouchard casually tweeted a Super Bowl prediction, she might not have expected to be going on a blind date as a result of it. Bouchard had predicted a win for the Atlanta Falcons after they were leading the New England Patriots by a scoreline of 21-0 at the Super Bowl 51 earlier this month.
This was when John Goehrke, a 20-year-old University of Missouri student, challenged her on Twitter and asked Bouchard if she would go on a date with him if the Patriots won. Bouchard agreed, thinking 21-0 to be a safe enough scoreline, but Tom Brady had other plans.
Goehrke won the bet thanks to the New England Patriots’ stunning fightback to defeat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28. While the team she supported lost, the 22-year-old Bouchard kept her end of the deal.
Bouchard and Goehrke went to the Brooklyn Nets’ home game against Milwaukee on Wednesday. She even extensively documented their date on Twitter, in keeping with the theme.
They were seen sitting courtside and enjoying the game. The date looks to have gone well, judging by Bouchard’s social media stream. In fact, it went so well, there might even be a second date, according to her interview with TMZ.
Five memes that explain why you need a toothpaste for your payday
That payday smile won’t shine itself.
At the end of the month, every salaried professional experiences a wide range of feelings. First, there’s extreme possessiveness - after spending several days trying to live off whatever little is left from paying bills and all those shopping binges, you’re understandably cranky and unwilling to part with the cash you have.
Then the week of payday arrives and you can finally breathe a sigh of relief again. As the glorious day comes closer, you can’t contain your excitement.
And then payday dawns and the world gets to behold an interesting phenomenon - your payday-wala smile. It is instantly recognizable as something different and special - it stretches across your face, from ear to ear and is mirrored on the faces of your colleagues. Soon the excitement wears off and you are at complete peace. You have worked hard, you’ve earned your keep, you are in Zen mode.
But is there a way to make payday even happier? And make your payday smile last even longer? You may be astonished to learn there is.
