Cardale Jones won the Twitter game once again during the ESPYs

He gained his first notoriety on the site a few years back, and he's already figured out how to get things he wants on the social network: He tweeted his way to throwing out the Cleveland Indians' first pitch earlier this summer.

Tonight, he thought he'd try his hand at something a bit steeper: finding himself a rather-famous date. The third-stringer-turned-national-championship-winning-quarterback was in Los Angeles for the ESPY's Wednesday among some of the hottest names in sports and Hollywood -- and Cardale set his sights high to start.
