Heh: Second-grade students correct NFL players’ grammar and spelling


Three tweets from NFL players are on their way to becoming a viral phenomenon after second-grade students in Buffalo, New York, whipped out their red pens for a grammar lesson. Deadspin captured images of the edited tweets from the Elmwood Franklin School Facebook page.
