A heartfelt apology to Travis Frederick and the Dallas Cowboys for my 'mean tweet'

Over the weekend, the Dallas Cowboys borrowed an idea from Jimmy Kimmel, and released a video of some of their players reading "mean tweets" written about them. It is legitimately funny, and has since gone viral. In case you haven't seen it, you can watch it here:

If you'll notice, the tweet that Cowboys center Travis Frederick read was posted by me, Jimmy Kempski.

I've brought shame on myself, my family, and the Eagles fan base as a whole. Not only was my tweet mean, it was inaccurate.

I went back to the All-22 and looked at the play in question. In doing so, I realized that it was not Frederick (#72) who was beaten by Cullen Jenkins on the play. It was instead the left guard.

That is an absolutely terrible job by me, and my deepest, most heartfelt apologies go out to the honorable Travis Frederick, AKA "Fredbeard."

I grew up an Eagles fan, and as such, I was raised to hate the Dallas Cowboys. Still, my parents taught me to admit when I am wrong, and to do whatever possible to make amends. It's just the right thing to do. Therefore, as a penance, this Eagles writer would like to offer up a "nice tweet" to help offset the damage done by my "mean tweet."
