Joe Haden of the Cleveland Browns never got to attend his senior prom because he was busy graduating early so he could head do Gainesville to enroll in classes and begin his college football career. Now Haden is a wealthy NFL cornerback and fulfilled a missed rite of passage for himself, and one for a lucky 18-year-old girl at Independence High School in Ohio.
Haden responded to a tweet from Joyce Grendel, an avid Haden fan, who invited the Browns defensive back after her original date snaked his way out of going with her to the dance. Haden surprised everyone, probably Grendel more than anyone, when he actually said yes.
This was a pretty cool thing that Haden did, and he went all out for Grendel. He picked her up in a white Lamborghini, and took her and friends of hers to take pictures at Cleveland Browns Stadium, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Oh, and forget about the prom food, they dined at XO Prime Steaks before showing up to the actual dance.
In addition to impressing his date with his generous, and lavish gifts, he also played the roll of a gentleman according to Grendel. Oh, and he showed that he knows how to do the Dougie.
We give a big fist bump to Haden for going all out and giving this girl a memory for life.
