University of Georgia football player Prather Hudson accidentally tackled ESPN reporter Laura Rutledge while tussling with a player from the opposing team.
Rutledge was hit quite hard, but quickly dusted herself off. Afterwards, Hudson took to Twitter to issue the reporter an official apology.
“Really sorry I knocked you down,” he tweeted Rutledge on Monday. He then followed up with a power move his coaching staff would probably be proud of – he asked her out: “But… I can pick you up at 7.”
Unfortunately for Hudson, Rutledge is a married to professional baseball player Josh Rutledge. At least she let him down easy in front of the entire Twitterverse, simply replying with a crying-laughing emoji.
It seems Hudson’s game on the field trumps his dating game. Better luck next time, dude.
