Michelle Beadle Says Yes to Prom Invitation

By: Pam Wright - March 14, 2014

Paralyzed hockey player, Jack Jablonski, snagged the date of all dates to his on April 26 prom at Benilde-St. Margaret’s School in St. Louis Park: ESPN‘s The SportsNation cohost, Michelle Beadle.

His invitation is hard to beat because he asked his date on-air, and she said yes.

Jablonski was paralyzed in 2011 after being checked into the boards head-first during a high school hockey game.

His love of hockey led him to co-host a weekly hockey Night in Minnesota segment on radio sports station 105 The Ticket.

Jablonski asked his Twitter follower Beadle to appear on the show Wednesday. During the broadcast, Jablonski had a question for the sports analyst.

“I’d formally like to invite you to my prom,” Jablonski said.

“Seriously, I would love it,” Beadle responded. “Can I wear an ’80s dress to the prom? And no alcoholic beverages, Jack, I will be watching.”

“I know that he’s a badass and someone I look up to immensely,” Beadle told Larry Brown Sports in an email. “I was shocked when he asked today. And I adore him for doing it live on the radio. I’m honored to squeeze my 38 year old behind into a formal gown for a great night!”
