Default Mohamed Sanu the victim of cruel prank on draft day

this is just wrong.....

Quote:
Mohamed Sanu thought he was a brand new member of the Cincinnati Bengals. This wasn't a hunch or some inside info whispered into his ear by his agent. The Bengals called him.


Or so he thought.
In some of the weakest sauce ever concocted, the Rutgers wide receiver was the victim of a prank on Thursday night. His phone rang and a person identifying themselves as a Bengals official told him he was the 27th overall pick.
Sanu and his family exploded into celebration -- he was a first-rounder in the NFL. Then the Bengals selected Wisconsin guard Kevin Zeitler.
"This is a great kid, I guarantee you, and someone played a cruel joke on him," Sanu's agent, Mike McCartney, told SI.com's Peter King. "It is unreal that someone would do that, but it happened."
Sanu said he's fine and told McCartney whatever team actually drafts him will get a playmaker. A great attitude to have, but you can only imagine how much this prank must have hurt. Humanity fail.

That's funny as hell, I can just see his whole family jumping around cheering, straight out of the movies.
