When Evan Mathis tweeted out a picture of his massive dinner receipt recently, everyone gasped at the total bill he had to pay. But what we didn’t see was that Mathis — who has trolled the media before — was trolling us all over again.
The receipt that Mathis posted was a fake, and the hoax served a deeper meaning than just showing off an outrageous dinner bill. If you look very closely at the receipt, you’ll notice a hidden message that Mathis left behind and is only now being picked up on.
Read the first letter of each line and put it together, Nancy Drew style.
Didn’t catch it? Adam Schefter did and was one of the first members of the media to realize what Mathis had done with this clever receipt.

Mathis has done this before and it’s nice to know that he has no plans of stopping. We need people like Mathis to keep things light and while some may have rolled their eyes at a juvinile move, it’s a clever troll by Mathis and something sports needs more of.
