In today's technological age with Facebook reminding you about your distant childhood friend's birthday, it's hard to forget those all-important days. Just don't tell that to the Detroit Lions.
On Sunday, the Lions sent out a Tweet wishing linebacker Kyle Van Noy a happy birthday.

A kind gesture, of course. There was just one problem: Van Noy's birthday is March 26, which the Lions clearly weren't aware of.
I appreciate the S/o but my birthday is March 26.... Same day as levy unfortunately that's why it's forgotten haha! https://t.co/ulAOs3V5zb— Kyle Van Noy (@KVN_03) June 19, 2016
Van Noy followed his tweet alerting the team of its error with this very valid question.
Should I feel dumb that the @Lions couldn't get my birthday right??Especially when I write it down over and over on paper work? Hahaha— Kyle Van Noy (@KVN_03) June 19, 2016
The Lions apologized, wishing Van Noy a "Happy Unbirthday."
