High school senior Georgetta Wuo asks Ricky Rubio to prom (Video)
It’s that time of year again, boys and girls: prom season. And taking a cue from other recent proposals directed to Tim Tebow and “Jerry” Lin, a Minneapolis-area high school senior has decided to aim high by asking Ricky Rubio through a YouTube video to be her prom date.
Champlin Park senior Georgetta Wuo, 18, posted her invitation to Rubio last Friday. Some of Rubio’s teammates on the Timberwolves have seen the video and think he should go.
“I don’t think he’s ever been to prom, so I think it’d be fun for him,” J.J. Barea said to WCCO-TV.
Rubio, of course, has plenty of free time on his hands now that he’s sidelined beyond the Olympics after tearing his ACL last month.
“Heck yeah, he should do it,” Anthony Tolliver said. “Why not? He’s not going to be doing anything!”
At least they wouldn’t have to worry about limo service with transportation already taken care of. Slow dances might be a little complicated, though.
