Alex Morgan is a popular gal. That’s especially the case on Twitter, where some of her thousands of adoring fans often attempt some harmless (and hopeless) flirting with the soccer star. (She’s taken, fellas. But, hey, we don’t blame you for trying.) But at least those fans know what she looks like. Can’t say the same for Robert Griffin III when he tried to jump on the Alex Morgan bandwagon this week.

Well, this just got awkward.

(Cheeks extremely rosy.) Griffin, by the way, eventually deleted those first two tweets.

We’re glad everything got straightened out and everybody was nice about it. And, in the end, Griffin picked up follows from both Morgan and Heath. That’s more than he originally sought! Nothing to be ashamed at there. Let’s just hope he figures out what Morgan looks like by the time she comes to a Redskins game.
For comparison, below is a picture of both players. Heath is No. 17 and Morgan is No. 13:
