Ever heard of “It’s not over until the fat lady sings?” What about “It’s not how you start but how you finish?”
Canadian Tennis star Genie Bouchard learned all these the hard way after she carelessly made an online bet with a random fan during the recently concluded Super Bowl.
Apparently, Genie was rooting hard for the Atlanta Falcons who were at one time up 28-3 against the New England Patriots.
We really couldn’t fault her for this given how the game was going well in her favor, but she became a little too overconfident with the Falcons’ massive lead.
That was when a random Patriots fan who had nothing to lose dared Genie to go out with him if his team manages a comeback victory to which she replied with a cool “Sure.”
At this point, it seemed like the Patriots were totally playing with the bet in mind as their team, powered by Tom Brady, who scored 25 consecutive points to force the game into overtime. And of course, they then went on to beat the Atlanta Falcons.
Genie, for her part, was shocked by the result but was graceful enough to honor her word.
Well, this random dude is indeed one lucky guy. Just look at these sizzling photos of Genie, who’s ready to make his wish come true.
