Here's why you need to take everything you see from athletes on Twitter with a grain of salt. Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson attended an ESPY's party Tuesday night. Someone connected to the event asked Jackson to tweet about the awesomeness of the bash. How do we know this? Because Jackson actually tweeted the request. However, the folks behind the party shouldn't fret. Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, Bills quarterback Vince Young and U.S. soccer captain Carlos Bocanegra all came though without incident.
*This is only according to the people who threw the party. We have no proof the party was in fact awesome.
