Following the Denver Broncos’ 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 — possibly Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning’s final game — Golden State Warriors backup center Festus Ezeli sent out a congratulatory tweet to the winning quarterback.
But he mixed up Peyton with his younger brother, Eli Manning, the New York Giants’ quarterback:
In Ezeli’s defense, he was about to undergo knee surgery on Monday, so it’s understandable why his mind would be elsewhere and he might mistake the Manning brothers, who are now each two-time Super Bowl winners.
Poor Festus. At least he was a good sport about it.
