It's a tale as old as time. Boy sees photo of beautiful NFL cheerleader. Boy asks for date over Twitter. Tweet goes viral. Cheerleader says yes. The date is on.
That's what happened to Texas high school senior Mike Ramirez. The varsity football player, 17, asked Caitlyn Beth, a cheerleader with the Houston Texans, to join him for an evening of fun, dancing and invoking the bitter jealousy of his teammates.
Ramirez told ABC-13 that he came up with the idea while sitting in English class. He wrote Beth on Twitter asking if she'd go to the prom with him if his message was retweeted 10,000 times.
It was. And then some. Beth told ABC-13 that she was happy to say yes. "I thought it was the sweetest thing ever and I immediately said yes, and I confirmed with my coach and the Texans and it took off from there."
