Ryan Lindley, Arizona’s backup quarterback’s backup, came in to finish the Cardinals win over the St. Louis Rams on Thursday. Lindley had spent the first two years of his career in Arizona before they released him in August. He spent some time with the Chargers this season before returning after Carson Palmer was lost for the season. Right around the time Lindley entered the game, he started tweeting about giving away Bibles.
Unlike when players get caught liking pictures of women on Instagram during games, it really was someone else on his account. That’s right, the one time a player is using social media for good, he really was hacked. The “hacker” in this case was someone from Athletes For Charity, who helps with Lindley’s account on charitable projects.
It is also delightful to realize that Lindley is too busy with football to maintain his 5,000+ follower Twitter account on his own. Having said that, if you tweet at Ryan Lindley today, you might get a free Bible out of it.
