Warriors' Festus Ezeli Mistakes Mannings in Super Bowl 50 Congratulatory Tweet

It began with a noble intention but ended in humiliation.

The Golden State Warriors' Festus Ezeli simply wanted to send his positive regards to an NFL great after his Super Bowl 50 victory; he was half right.

Instead of directing his warm wishes to Peyton, the big man congratulated the younger Manning, Eli.

After being alerted to his mistake, Ezeli corrected the error, taking the blunder in stride.

The thought was there, but sorry, Festus, there's no partial credit.
