Running into an NFL athlete is often a once in a lifetime experience. When that moment happens, the fan usually asks the football player for permission to take a picture together. Once that picture is snapped, the evidence is immediately posted to every social networking service downloaded on a cell phone.

Unfortunately, Jenni Bazard turned her shining moment into an embarrassing one recently.

Bazard thought she ran into Houston Texans running back Arian Foster, and took a picture with him. She decided to share that picture on Twitter and tag Foster:

There was only one problem.

The guy in the picture was not Foster. In fact, Foster kindly let her know she had the wrong person in his reply:

There are so many things wrong with Bazard’s encounter with this random person.

Did Bazard ask the impostor if he was Foster and he said yes? Did she ask a random stranger to take a picture with her, and he obliged? Is Bazard the last person you want to give officers a description of someone who attacked you?

Hopefully Bazard will ask more questions the next time she thinks J.J. Watt is sitting in her hotel lobby.
