This $64,000 Restaurant Bill From the Eagles is Fake

Posted June 13th, 2014 @ 9:14am

Philadelphia Eagles guard Evan Mathis tweeted this photo out Thursday night.  It looks like a restaurant receipt totaling over $64,000.  The caption, "Teaching rookies a lesson..." led many to believe it was an actual bill from a "rookie dinner."

Rookie dinners typically involve veteran players forcing rookies to take out teammates to dinner.  The rookies are usually left with substantial bills.

It happens.

But, not this time.

Mathis' tweet received over 5,400 retweets and ended up on numerous sports blogs.

But, it's fake.

Mathis tweeted a new picture that showed that the image was actually taken in a kitchen.  Also, ESPN reporter Adam Schefter cracked a code.
