"Hope you get an A in this class."
It's finals season (both in sports and in the classroom) and students across the country are doing everything in their power to wiggle their way out of exams, including begging Kobe Bryant.
One student made a deal with his teacher that if he got a retweet from Kobe, the entire class would get a pass on the final exam. The request isn't quite on the level of "18 million retweets for free Wendy's nuggets for a year," but it still seemed highly unlikely that the student would get an RT from the guy with 11.5 million followers.
But, that's why they play the games. Or rather, that's why they tweet the tweets.
Kobe not only retweeted, but also left him a message saying he hopes he gets an A in the class. Hopefully the teacher lives up to his end of the deal.
