Brandon Marshall, who's had clashes with coaches, teammates, and the law in the past, is having a monster season. He's second in the NFL in receptions, third in receiving yards, fourth in touchdowns, and his Chicago Bears have surprised many by jumping out to a 7-2 record.
Reuters Chicago receiver Brandon Marshall made seven receptions for 138 yards and a touchdown in the Bears huge 34-18 win over the Dallas Cowboys Monday night.
Chicago receiver Brandon Marshall made seven receptions for 138 yards and a touchdown in the Bears huge 34-18 win over the Dallas Cowboys Monday night.
But, when you're Brandon Marshall, bad luck just seems to find you.
On Wednesday, upon arriving in the Bears locker room after practice, Marshall was greeted by a package from his alma mater, the University of Central Florida.
Gleefully, he tweeted out to his 750,000 followers, "What a nice treat this morning waiting for me at my locker. What can it be? #UCF"
Inside the box, Marshall discovered a glitzy new UCF shirt that the school had kindly sent to one of its most successful alumni.
So, to give thanks, Marshall threw on the shirt and tweeted out a picture of himself in it. The only problem was, unbeknownst to Marshall, a naked Bears teammate was standing close enough to be seen in the background of the photo.
After a quick review, Marshall caught his photo faux pas and issued a Twitter apology a few moments later.
“Sorry about my guy in the back getting dressed in that photo,” Marshall tweeted.
Mashable has a censored version of the picture. As Robbie Burns said, “The best-laid plans of mice and men/Often go awry.”
