LOOK: Kyle Van Noy trolls the Detroit Lions on his birthday

When the Detroit Lions drafted Kyle Van Noy in the 2nd Round of the 2014 NFL Draft, they were hoping they were getting one of their outside linebackers of the future. Unfortunately (for the Lions), things did not work out and they ended up trading Van Noy to the New England Patriots this past season.

Last June, while Van Noy was still playing for Detroit, the Lions sent a Happy Birthday tweet to their linebacker.

There was only one problem with the gesture. Van Noy’s birthday IS NOT on June 19th. Of course, he was sure to remind the Lions that his real birthday is March 26th.

So, the Lions then wished Van Noy a Happy Unbirthday.

Well, yesterday was Van Noy’s real birthday and the Patriots were sure to send their best wishes…on the correct day.

Van Noy acknowledged the gesture by the Patriots by trolling the Lions in the process.
