Here’s a little story about how awesome it is to be a professional athlete. New Jersey Devils goalie Keith Kinkaid was minding his own business Thursday night, probably kicking it at his house, maybe watching a little March Madness, when all of the sudden a smoking hot, up and coming country singer hit him up on Twitter looking for a date.
Enter Taylor Acorn, said up and coming country singer, who was named one of Billboard’s 15 country singers to watch in 2018. She asks Kinkaid how many retweets she needs for this date. First, let me say this: Bravo to Taylor for shooting her shot. We don’t see this very often these days from the ladies, so I already love this move. Clearly, Kinkaid did too. Dudes love a little initiative. He’s in, no retweets necessary.
And just like that, I think we have ourselves yet another country singer-hockey player romance on the horizon.
It’s been said a billion times, but it needs mentioning again: the life of a pro athlete is really incredible. All you need is a Twitter account and a little patience and you’ll have a date in no time.
I look forward to seeing where this goes.
It looks like these two have already met once before
