There are certain things you can share on social media when you’re not a household name that you probably want to keep to yourself after you become a big-name NFL rookie.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, the No. 2 overall pick of the NFL draft, had an embarrassing moment. He somehow ended up locked in a bathroom at a New Jersey gas station. He was rescued by the attendants’ use of some garden shears. Imagine the looks on their face when they saw they were saving the 6-5, 237-pound Eagles quarterback of the future.
This is the type of thing that you generally don’t want getting out on social media when you’re a star, but Wentz offered it up.
And a couple thousand retweets and endless jokes later …
Hey, give Wentz credit for being able to laugh about the situation. I’ve never been locked in a gas station bathroom, but can’t imagine it’s a fun experience. What more can you do but crack a joke about it?
And if this is the worst thing that happens in Wentz’s rookie year, he should consider himself lucky.
