Teen Brings Texans Cheerleader to Prom
Mike Ramirez is a high school football player who spent most of his time on the bench last season and works part-time at a local McDonalds. Caitlyn is a Texans cheerleader whose life is devoted to intense workouts, coaching tumbling classes and studying communications at the University of Houston.
Yet 10,000 retweets later, the two are a prom couple.
For “Big Mike,” as he’s been known to his friends since his sophomore year at Crosby High School in suburban Houston, it all started as a joke during 3rd period, when Caitlyn followed him on a “Twitter following spree.”
“I was all like, ‘What if I took a Texans cheerleader to prom?’” Ramirez recalled asking his classmate. “He was like, that would be pretty cool.”
So Ramirez sent Caitlyn a message. “If I get 10,000 retweets will you go to prom with me (insert smiley face.) you will get asked in a cute way!”
“Of course I will,” responded Caitlyn, who according to Texans’ policy isn’t allowed to give her last name.
“Alrighttt!” Ramirez exclaimed.
