We have yet to see, however, any type of apology for another faux pas, outlined later on in the ESPN.com story:
The Pouncey brothers, who are twins, reportedly wore the hats on Saturday at a Miami nightclub, where they were celebrating their upcoming birthdays. They both turn 24 on July 24.
Whoa, whoa, whoa. Saturday was July 13. Yes, training camp is coming up. We get that. And yes, July 24 -- while being their golden birthday and therefore very special -- unfortunately falls on a Wednesday. But when you have a midweek birthday, fellas, you can either celebrate the weekend before or the weekend after. In general, in our book, you have a one-week radius around your birthday for true birthday celebrations.
Anything else is just a party, which is fine. Just don't call it a birthday celebration. And probably don't wear a "Free Hernandez" cap to your non-birthday party.
