The Lions wished one of their players happy birthday on the wrong day
In today's technological age with Facebook reminding you about your distant childhood friend's birthday, it's hard to forget those all-important days. Just don't tell that to the Detroit Lions.
On Sunday, the Lions sent out a Tweet wishing linebacker Kyle Van Noy a happy birthday.
A kind gesture, of course. There was just one problem: Van Noy's birthday is March 26, which the Lions clearly weren't aware of.
I appreciate the S/o but my birthday is March 26.... Same day as levy unfortunately that's why it's forgotten haha! https://t.co/ulAOs3V5zb— Kyle Van Noy (@KVN_03) June 19, 2016
Van Noy followed his tweet alerting the team of its error with this very valid question.
Should I feel dumb that the @Lions couldn't get my birthday right??Especially when I write it down over and over on paper work? Hahaha— Kyle Van Noy (@KVN_03) June 19, 2016
The Lions apologized, wishing Van Noy a "Happy Unbirthday."
