Tennis player Genie Bouchard may be heading to Missouri for a date after losing a Super Bowl bet.
Bouchard was watching the game Sunday when she boasted about the Atlanta Falcons lead.
A fan who goes by the name TW1 then asked her if they could go on a date if the Patriots won. She answered "sure."

The Patriots ended up coming back from a massive deficit to win the game in overtime.
After the game, Bouchard asked TW1 where he lived.
It turns out he is from Chicago and currently studying in Missouri.
@geniebouchard Chicago. Go to school in Missouri. We can go on a date where ever you want!- TW1 (@punslayintwoods) February 6, 2017
Shortly after noon on Monday, Bouchard still seemed to be in shock.
