Genie Bouchard goes on another date with guy she met on Twitter. We're jealous.
John Goehrke was just another college student watching the Super Bowl when he saw Genie Bouchard's post "I knew Atlanta would win" tweet after the Falcons went up 21-3. So he asked for a date if the Patriots came back and won. They did, and the two went on a date to a Nets game. Well, it appears the two stayed in touch because they went out again last night. Bouchard is also a SI Swimsuit model and my sources tell me the couple are in love and may elope. Just kidding! My sources didn't return my email but I'll keep you posted.

My new favorite sports story
Texas native Stormi Michelle describes herself as a "basic little redneck queen" who loves "anything to do with the outdoors, from hunting, fishing, or mudding to boating, being on beaches or lakes, and taking long walks in the park." She is today's LLOD (click for full-size gallery).
