You may recall that Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Emmanuel Acho is headed back to prom after losing a bet to a fan on Twitter. To recap: a girl by the name of Hannah Delmonte sent a direct message to Acho on Instagram last month asking if he'd go to prom with her if over 2,000 people retweeted her tweet. Acho raised the stakes to 10,000, thinking that would be much more difficult to pull off, but Hannah passed the 10K number with ease. Acho, surprised by her success, promised he would honor the deal.
Acho proved to be a man of his word when he showed up at Delmonte's high school this week to surprise her with an official prom invitation. Check out how that went down:
SURPRISE!! Most heart warming feeling I've had in a while! Sorry for making you cry though @hdelmonte_ SEE YOU AT PROM!! #PromPartII ---- Backstory: Prior to walking around the corner, she was in the principles office being debriefed on what to say to the school board to get approval for my attendance at prom. She turned the corner expecting to go meet with school board representatives.
Heartwearming, indeed. Here was Hannah's take on things:
I am so honored to be taking such a tremendous person to prom. I can't thank you enough for everything you've done! pic.twitter.com/5wPblfYmI3— Hannah Delmonte (@hdelmonte32) February 20, 2015
I used to laugh at people who would cry when they met famous people.... and then today happened— Hannah Delmonte (@hdelmonte32) February 21, 2015
Just a really cool story. Acho man rules.
