A group of 2nd graders correct NFL tweets with the correct grammar they learned from school, which went viral, as shown in the photo below. Amusingly, these kids from Elmwood Franklin Elementary School in Buffalo, New York had the courage to publicly correct the mistakes of the famous NFL players.

“Second graders are serious fans of football—and grammar!” A statement reads at Elmwood Franklin School‘s Facebook page on Friday, February 2, 2013, along with three photos of themselves holding a huge paper showing the tweets of three NFL players with wrong grammar.

Elmwood Franklin School‘s second grade students applied their lessons in proper sentence structure, noun and verb usage, spelling, and punctuation to correct the tweets of professional football players. The students partnered in groups and together found several mistakes in these tweets, including the incorrect spelling of “a lot.” The statement added.

The three unlucky NFL players whom the 2nd graders have corrected for their grammatically wrong tweets are Chris Culliver of the San Francisco 49ers, Titus Young Sr. of the Detroit Lions, and Wes Welker of the New England Patriots. Apparently, the young students also provided their corrections.

“I pray to God I’m never dieing broke.” Chris Culliver (@Cullyinthehouse) tweeted.

“It’s true I could be alot better, But wit the football.” Titus D Young Sr (@TitusDYoungSr) tweeted.

“Merry Christmas to everyone. My God bless you all!” Wes Welker (@WesWelker) tweeted.

But let’s admit it, these days, we can find tons of online messages with wrong grammar (and wrong spelling too) not only on Twitter, but also on Facebook and Reddit. Some of these messages even come from famous personalities. And yet, most of us care less, as long as we understand the thought of the message.

These three NFL players have entered college and are being expected to write sentences with correct grammar. Their mistakes could have been done unintentionally, or they may really have problems in writing. After all, not all college graduates can speak and write English correctly, regardless of where they came from.
