Ever have that nagging feeling you’ve forgotten something important, only to have it come back and bite you later when the suspicion is proved correct? If so, well, welcome to Desmond Bishop’s world.
Bishop, an inside linebacker for the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers, was all set to visit President Barack Obama at the White House with his teammates Friday except, well, he forgot his identification on the plane. Really, we wouldn’t make this up.
Bishop, admittedly disappointed, told us all about it on Twitter.
He added: “Tho dissapointed, i ll live vicariously thru my fellow Teammates.. Nap time.. As jack reacher wud say ‘sleep wen u can..’”
So while Bishop was (we assume) napping, the president, who we all know is a Bears fan, was lighthearted and cracked a fair number of jokes during his speech, although none at the expense of Bishop. Either you have to be present to make that list, or the president’s speechwriters whiffed on a golden opportunity.
