Super Bowl brings Genie Bouchard and John Goehrke together again

— -- It started as a lark on Twitter when University of Missouri student John Goehrke got Genie Bouchard to agree to a date if the  New England Patriots rallied to win last year's Super Bowl.

The  Atlanta Falcons' loss was Goehrke's gain, as they went to a  Brooklyn Nets game together shortly after Super Bowl LI. Bouchard said she would consider a second date -- and in December, she tweeted a photo of the two of them together in Florida.

Now, thanks to an offer from NFL Canada, Goehrke and Bouchard will attend Super Bowl LII together in Minneapolis on Feb. 4.

Bouchard lost in the second round of the Australian Open last week, falling to top-ranked Simona Halep 6-2, 6-2 on Thursday.
