Proms usually suck. How do you make prom *not* suck? Bring a star NFL quarterback as your date.
Teddy Bridgewater, in the middle of his first true NFL offseason where he could be doing literally *anything* he wanted, spent a Friday night taking a random Louisville high school girl to her prom. Here's the video:
Teddy surprised Christian Academy of Louisvile junior Ashley Davis by showing up unannounced, just out of the goodness of his heart. But why'd he do it, especially on a Friday night when a young NFL quarterback could be in the club poppin' bottles? WLKY caught up with the Teddy before the dance, and interviewed the two on camera:
"I felt that it was the right thing to do. It was a good thing to do. It kind of touched me when I first met her. How she kind of teared up and everything. It just showed that I made an impact here on the playing field on and off the playing field. Ashley ... She is just a great girl and I am going to make sure she has a great time tonight,"
Evidently it's a pretty big deal when an NFL quarterback shows up at your prom, too. You can see Bridgewater & Davis' night chronicled in tweets right here:

Congratulations to Christian Academy of Louisville for hosting the city's hottest red-carpet event of the year. We're all jealous that you actually had a good time at prom.
