After the game, Blake posted a tweet sharing his experience with the security. The kicker shared that the security misunderstood him as a fan. 

He shared his whole game experience in three steps. First, he was questioned about his credentials, then he hit the game-winning goal, and in the end, while leaving he was mistaken as a fan by the security. 

Blake was the star of the night therefore it was quite shocking to know that the security couldn’t recognize him. It must’ve been shocking for the kicker himself. After the game, everyone in the stadium was praising him and just a few moments later a security professional couldn’t even recognize him. 

His lighthearted response to the security’s mistake shows how humble the rookie player is. Instead of misbehaving he handled the situation with humility and gratitude. Even through his hilarious tweet, the focus of the Kicker was to prove that he is a valuable player for the Saints
