- More NFL news here.
One of the big stories in the NFL on Monday was the news that the Los Angeles Rams had traded two second-day draft picks in 2022 to the Denver Broncos for eight-time Pro Bowler Von Miller.
Miller will certainly reinforce a already very stout defense in Los Angeles when he joins three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald and four-time Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey.
The Rams, obviously very excited about adding the 2011 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year to their roster, decided to celebrate, as one does, with a pithy GIF on social media.
The GIF, accompanied by the phrase “We’re all in,” features a scene from the classic 1998 high-stakes poker drama Rounders starring Matt Damon, Edward Norton, John Turturro, and John Malkovich, who plays Russian mobster Teddy KGB.
Clever, right? Maybe a little too clever.
Because, you see, that scene where Malkovich goes “all in” ends with Teddy KGB getting baited by Matt Damon’s character into going all in only to lose the final hand and a little over $60,000.
Needless to say, because the internet is still undefeated after all these years, NFL fans had a lot of fun pointing out the error of the Los Angeles Rams’ social media account’s ways.
