Recently a US Marine put up a YouTube video asking Ronda Rousey to go to the Marine Corps Ball with him. You remember Ronda, right? She’s the women’s UFC fighter that has cleaned everybody’s clock who’s gotten in the ring with her.
Days after Jarrod Haschert asked his “celebrity crush” Rousey to the annual Marine Corps Ball at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, he scored big-time. The long-distance flirtation began August 22, when Haschert — speaking in full Marine uniform from Camp Lejeune — put up a 34-second video online expressing his admiration for the undefeated UFC women’s bantamweight champion.
“I love everything you do, and I think you are a phenomenal person,” he said.
Then came the punchline:
“Which is why it would be my honor to take you to the Marine Corps Ball on December 11. … I hope you take this in consideration because, if you do, you will truly be making my dream come true.”
And ……….Boom!! Ronda Rousey said “Yes!” but with a couple of conditions.
Jarod has to be a gentleman and has to provide dates for her friends.
I’m pretty sure I know who the most popular Marine in the Corps is right now.
