It’s been about two days since tennis hottie Genie Bouchard rocked the world by going out with a random Twitter fan after losing a Super Bowl bet. That rando fan, Mizzou student John Goehrke, seemed to have a good time. I mean, homeboy had a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model as arm candy the day after Valentine’s Day.
Now, John has shared some details of his date — not to me, even though I tweeted at him once. Seriously people, live a little and leave your DMs on. No, instead, John opened up to Fox Sports with some details on the date. Here are a few highlights.
From Fox Sports:
FOX: OK so you arrive in NYC, get put up, have courtside tickets waiting for you — what was the game plan for when she arrived? You only get one chance to make a first impression.
Goehrke: Yeah, so I got a ride over to her hotel and had one NBA media member in the car with me. When we got there he did a quick interview with me and then went upstairs and interviewed her before she came down. Then she came down and we met, I gave her a hug and said hi and gave the gift I had brought and then we walked out to the car and left for the game.
Nothing better than getting shown you’re a pawn in a giant public relations scheme on your first date. That’s actually how I’d like to start all of my dates from now on — let ‘em know not to get too ahead of themselves and that my sheer presence is a privilege.
FOX: What was the gift and what made you think she’d like it?
Goehrke: Tiffany earrings. They had “Tiffany New York” on them which I thought was a cool touch because we had our date in New York.
Coming out of the gates throwing heat, John. Real solid move. She certainly seems like the high-maintenance type, and that’s not a knock on her. A pair of city-specific Tiffany earrings on the first date is a real solid power move. Did I mention she modeled for SI?
FOX: Not worried about the hockey player she’s cuddling with in her Instagram photos knocking on your door with a baseball bat?
Goehrke: At this point I’m just trying to make a second date happen and we can worry about that later.
Just because there’s a goalie doesn’t mean you can’t score.
FOX: Last question, what is your advice to all the kids out there who are trying to outkick their coverage and score a date with a celebrity?
Goehrke: My advice is never hesitate to go for it. The worst that could happen in my situation was that she didn’t respond, so why not.
…because shooters fucking shoot.
Sounds like it’s time for a follow-up interview. Holla at me, Genie?.
