One wonders how you text the wrong number when you have contacts already saved in your phone, but it happens.
According to a local news outlet, it all began when Vinny Tartaglia started a group text for the freshmen boys’ basketball team about practices. He messed up “one digit for one of their teammates,” school counselor P. Jason Whalen, whose son is on the basketball team, explained on Twitter.
Members of the boys’ freshmen basketball team at Notre Dame Prep found themselves on a FaceTime call with Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after one teammate inadvertently entered the wrong number in their group text.
“That was fun,” Brady told ESPN. “That was really fun. It was really good to see all those young kids hyped up.”
Here’s how it went down, according to P. Jason Whalen, whose son Colin is on the freshman basketball team at Notre Dame Preparatory School and Marist Academy, which is about 35 minutes from where Murphy-Bunting grew up in Macomb, Michigan.
Don’t fret. “They added him (missing teammate) in once they figured it out,” Whalen confirmed.
Now don’t go texting random numbers hoping to Tom Brady.
