Lions wish Kyle Van Noy 'Happy Birthday' ... except it isn't his birthday

Detroit Lions linebacker Kyle Van Noy likely woke up this morning to a pretty big surprise. His employer wished him a Happy Birthday on Sunday and that's all well and good except for one thing: It wasn't Van Noy's birthday.

Van Noy was born on March 26, not June 19. The former BYU linebacker had fun with the Lions' mistake, though, thanking the Lions for the wishes anyway.

The Lions did get Father's Day right, though, continually tweeting out images of Lions players with their dads.

It's been an interesting month on Twitter for the official Lions account, which also ended up on the wrong end of a Twitter conversation with the Green Bay Packers in May.
