Normally, it's very difficult to relate to NFL players. They can't walk down the street without people wanting autographs while people actively ignore me in public. They are incredibly athletic while I ate an entire Panda Express plate while laying on my bed at 3 p.m. this afternoon. Yes, please judge me. I deserve it.
But not today! Atlanta Falcons' linebacker Sean Weatherspoon tweeted out this gem while moving into a new place this afternoon.
My gal just found a game check, I guess moving does have its perks ha— Sean Weatherspoon (@SeanWSpoon56) March 29, 2016
You know what? I, too, have stumbled across an old paycheck that I forgot to cash once. It might have happened a couple times, actually! It's always a great feeling, realizing you're a drive to the ATM away from having more money to spend frivolously on something you'll regret almost immediately.
Wait, what's that? Weatherspoon's game check -- based on a 17-week season and his $2.4 million base salary with the Cardinals -- is probably worth $138,000.
Uh yeah, never mind.
If you're wondering how he could just lose something worth that much, apparently they're usually direct deposit and this was a rare instance where he received a hard check.
