Genie Bouchard never thought the Falcons would actually lose.
Add Canadian tennis star Genie Bouchard to the list of sports fans prematurely handing the Lombardi Trophy to the Falcons.
After Tom Brady threw a pick-six late in the first half, Bouchard figured it was safe to declare the game over and boast that she thought Atlanta was always going to win. That’s when a fan in her mentions decided to throw a Hail Mary.

if patriots win we go on a date?— TW1 (@punslayintwoods) February 6, 2017
It looked like a pretty safe bet at the time, but as the Patriots began to mount a comeback Bouchard started to sweat a little bit.

Lesson learned. Never bet against Tom Brady 😇— Genie Bouchard (@geniebouchard) February 6, 2017
Yeah, betting against Tom Brady is a little like betting against Serena Williams. Hopefully Genie learned her lesson.
