High School Kids Accidentally FaceTime Gronk and Brady After Calling Wrong Number
Imagine being a kid on a freshman high school basketball team. The captains will often put together a group text to make communication easier about things like practice times, bus schedules, and which color game jerseys to wear.
For one Michigan basketball team, though, a wrong number on a team text thread has given the boys a memory they'll have forever. According to ESPN, the wrong number on the group text was that of Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting. SMB tried to explain to the guys that they had the wrong number, and while he wasn't on their team, but he was on a different team. Finally, he took a selfie in the Bucs locker room to prove he was an NFL player.
One thing led to another, and Murphy-Bunting ended up connecting with the team on FaceTime call to show them around Tampa Bay's locker room. His phone ended up getting passed around. Tight end Rob Gronkowski, who's always up for some fun, jumped onto the FaceTime to say hi to the freshman team. Defensive back Richard Sherman and running back Leonard Fournette hopped on, but the boys jaws were about to hit the floor.
The kids from Michigan came face to face with one of the most famous players to ever wear a University of Michigan football jersey, Thomas Edward Patrick Brady. The kids' faces said it all. The were completely stunned.
How much fun it must have been for both the high school basketball team from Michigan and for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers players to have an unscripted moment like that? It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the boys, and a great look for the team to do something so simple yet so meaningful for a group of young guys they didn't know.
Undoubtedly, though, Murphy-Bunting had to get a new cell phone number.
