Just one verse each day.
Three Pittsburgh Steelers players met their match when they headed to a pickleball court for a fun pick-up game.
The story of how a Pittsburgh grandma “whupped” T.J. Watt and Alex Highsmith went viral after her daughter shared the story on Twitter.
Steelers linebacker Watt was enjoying some friendly pickleball competition with teammate Highsmith and another friend, Minkah Fitzpatrick. They played singles with each other for a while, but then found another person to play doubles.
A local Pittsburgh woman named Meg Burkardt joined in, and it turned out she could more than hold her own!
After the game, she texted a photo to her family along with this caption:
“So I rolled up to north park tonight to jump in a pick-up pickleball game. Started playing with these guys. Had no idea who they were. Last game the guy in the green shirt and I whooped the other two. Then everyone else there wanted to take our photo …”
Her daughter shared a screenshot of the conversation with the caption, “My mom whooped (sic) some Steelers in pickleball today lol”.
