Paul Ryan mistakens Colt McCoy for Brandon Weeden
Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan visited the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday and mistakenly thought back up quarterback Colt McCoy was Brandon Weeden.
While addressing players, Ryan praised Weeden, whom he recalled watching play for Oklahoma State, according to a pool report.
The only problem: The Wisconsin congressman was pointing to McCoy.
Ryan pleaded for mercy when he realized his mistake.
“You always had your helmet on,” he said of the redheaded Weeden.
Talk about bad first impressions. I’m sure both Ryan and the Browns won’t ever forget this.
