I’ve done it a million times myself, and dialed the wrong number. Usually a call or text ends with “Pardon me bad,” but in some cases it can turn into something else and something big.
Members of the freshman basketball team in Pontiac, Michigan, were sending out a group message, which they had done many times before. But this time, it would be one wrong number that would change their lives in a very nice way.
According to ESPN, the mix-up accidentally made them including Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting in the group. Tweet From one NDP player, P. Jason Whalen, he detailed how it all came about. Whalen, whose son Colin was on the team, wrote that the players couldn’t believe they were texting an NFL player, but that was about to change.
In an effort to establish his identity, Sean Murphy-Bunting sent the team a selfie from inside a Tampa Bay locker room. Before they knew it, the conversation turned into a full FaceTime session. For 10 minutes, Bucs players Leonard Fournette, Mike Evans, Richard Sherman and even Rob Gronkowski took turns to salute the shocked high school students.
Much like the end of a great game, GOAT itself, and my very favorite player of all time, Tom Brady, was the last hello.
He appears on the screen and says ‘What’s up guys?!?! “The boys are losing their minds…”
How did the meeting “by chance” end? It largely started with a letter from Sean Murphy-Banting. He said to the boys, “The ball is out this season!” So grateful for the once-in-a-lifetime experience, the team all agreed they wouldn’t let the player’s number go out there.
