Eagles' Emmanuel Acho taking fan to prom after losing Twitter bet

The power of social media has one teen pretty excited over her high-profile prom date.

A huge Philadelphia Eagles fan recently sent a message to linebacker Emmanuel Acho on Instagram asking if he would take her to prom if she got 2,000 retweets on Twitter.

Acho agreed but decided his going rate was a bit higher.

He offered to be her date if she received 10,000 retweets by next week.

The teen was able to get those 10,000 re-tweets within just 3 hours.

A man of his word, Acho accepted the invitation and says he's excited to go.

But since he's actually never been to a prom, he asked his Twitter followers: "So, where do you buy a corsage?"
