We’ve all been on one side of a wrong number or another before. It can be incredibly frustrating when it’s a group chat. I mean, heck, group chats with people I know tend to annoy me simply due to the sheer number of notifications (except for the BN chat, of course. Don’t fire me, Michael).
But, I’m willing to bet you would be cool with accidentally adding a pro athlete to your group chat, like a group of teens from Pontiac, Mi. did recently when they mistakenly added Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting to their freshman basketball group chat.

Holy cow! That’s awesome; I don’t care how old you are; that video was all of the feels. The experience of a lifetime for the freshman basketball team from Notre Dame Prep.
Murphy-Bunting, a native of McComb, Mi. and a graduate of Chippewa Valley High School in Clinton Township, Mi., could have informed the group that they had the wrong number. Still, he took it upon himself to give them an experience that they will never forget, one of the coolest things that a pro athlete can do.
Murphy-Bunting passes the phone off to veteran running back Leonard Fournette (still mad at him about that 50-burger he put on me in fantasy football, but he gets a pass for the moment) who makes the rounds in the Tampa Bay locker room, introducing the boys to Rob Gronkowski, Mike Evans, Richard Sherman, and even the GOAT himself, Tom Brady.
The kid on the bottom left took ownership of asking Fournette to speak with Brady, redeeming himself for initially asking Murphy-Bunting to leave the chat, LOL!
Good stuff all around, and major props to Sean Murphy-Bunting for using his celebrity to make a memory for that group.
