Saturday was an exciting evening for a Crosby High School senior who landed a date with a Houston Texans cheerleader for his senior prom.
Mike Ramirez described himself as a “very lucky man” when he describe having Caitlyn from the Houston Texans cheerleading squad as his prom date.
In February, Ramirez worked up the courage and used Twitter to ask Caitlyn out.
“I was in class and my friend Colton said I should message one of them and ask them to prom because that would be pretty cool.” Ramirez said. “And I did it and she replied.”
When Caitlyn replied she told Ramirez she would go only if he was able to get 10,000 retweets. She was surprised one day later when he had 10,000 retweets and the envy of every boy in his school.
The incident sparked a national mass media response. Caitlyn said the media attention she received was crazy.
“There was a lot for probably two weeks and it kind of slowed down.” Caitlyn said. ”I still had things here and there but now that it's actually prom it's all picking back up again.”
The two met for the first time Saturday evening at the dinner before prom. As soon as dinner was over the couple hit the dance floor.
