Tennis star Genie Bouchard was really confident the Atlanta Falcons would finish off the New England Patriots after building a huge lead in Super Bowl LI on Sunday night.
So much so that she agreed to go on a date with a Patriots fan if New England came back and won. And who could blame her? The Falcons led 28-3 in the third quarter.
Well, the Patriots scored 31 unanswered points to win 34-28 in overtime to complete the best comeback in Super Bowl history.
Bouchard, to her credit, isn’t backing away from the deal.
Super Bowl LI taught Bouchard and many other sports fans a valuable lesson.
