And it ended with some high-flying, free-flowing, end to end action. on the basketball court that is.

Genie Bouchard is in the headlines again but it's not for her game. Or perhaps, more aptly, the hope you didn't agree to go on a blind date with a total creeper.

After the stunning comeback, a red-faced Bouchard then gamely replied to John, asking him where he lived and cursing herself for daring to bet against the game's MVP Tom Brady.

I was like 'It's one of those Twitter fans! I don't even know what he looks like.

And, according to Bouchard, there will "for sure" be a second date.

New England won, and Bouchard went ahead with the date.

Posting pictures to her Twitter and Instagram accounts, the young Canadian player confirmed that the pair were on their date, and looked to be having a good time.

"I thought why not make the date happen sooner rather than later, there's a Nets game tonight, I think it would be a great date idea", she told YES Network during the date.
