Throughout the night, Eugenie Bouchard has been sharing videos and pictures of herself with John Goehrke, enjoying a good night watching the Super Bowl - a year on from John winning a date with her thanks to a bet placed via Twitter.

The pair also took control of the NFL Canada Twitter account for a Q&A session with the public using the hashtag #SuperBowlDate.
Everyone wanted to know one thing - what's the deal? Are they together, or not? Well... no, basically. It would seem as if the relationship is purely friendly as it has been reported that Genie has been dating ice hockey player Jordan Caron.
Still, even if they are just friends, we can all learn something from John's willingness to chance his arm on getting a date with a girl that would probably otherwise never have met him. It's also nice to see that Genie is a good sport and seems to genuinely like the guy.
If you were thinking of trying your luck with anyone tonight you're probably best looking elsewhere though.
No bets for me tonight haha. Great game :clap: pic.twitter.com/1b9Yvydolg

As the confetti rained down on the Eagles players at the end of the game, Bouchard tweeted: "No bets for me tonight haha. Great game."
Their story began a year ago, and it probably seemed a silly idea at the time - the Atlanta Falcons looked sure to win the Superbowl in February 2017. Tennis star Eugenie Bouchard tweeted (admittedly a bit prematurely): "I knew Atlanta would win btw."
That's when John Goehrke seized his moment. He tweeted her back: "If Patriots win, we go on a date?" Not exactly the best patter ever, but fate was in his favour: the Pats came back to win and he got his date.
In fact, he got a bit more than that. The two have become friends and have been spotted - largely on social media - hanging out a few times since then.
They spent time together in Miami recently, and met up over the Christmas period, as well as going on their first date in New York. They pair seemed to hit it off pretty well.
A year on from their first interactions they were invited to the big event by NFL Canada on Twitter, to which Bouchard replied:
OMG. Back to where it all began?! And with the @Patriots too?! I'm in! What do you say @punslayintwoods? https://t.co/6Pfh7QNjtm

"OMG. Back to where it all began?! And with the @Patriots too?! I'm in! What do you say @punslayinthewoods?"
Needless to say, he the Marketing student from the University of Missouri wasn't going to pass up the opportunity and he went along too.
