Genie Bouchard owes a random fan a date after Patriots make improbable comeback

We all must learn this eventually: It is unwise to bet against Tom Brady.

Tennis star Genie Bouchard learned that lesson the hard way on Sunday night when she proclaimed that the Falcons had wrapped up the Super Bowl … in the middle of the game. When an enterprising fan asked her to go on a date with him if the Patriots came back and won, she cheerfully agreed. How could it possibly happen?

It happened.

She even played along a bit, showing off her confidence in her Falcons pick.

And then…

It’s a good lesson to learn.
