It has happened once or twice when we’ve seen athletes “shoot their shot,” as they say to someone they find attractive using their social media platforms.
Pittsburgh Steelers second-year receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, who quickly became a darling last season for his spectacular catches, imaginative celebrations and fondness for his bike, is trying this method of matchmaking now too.
There’s just a slight problem.
Who is JuJu’s dream girl?
Smith-Schuster’s dream girl is none other than Elastigirl, matriarch of the Incredibles family and star of “The Incredibles 2,” the sequel that was finally released this past weekend.
Likely after seeing the movie, Smith-Schuster posted a photoshopped picture of himself with Elastigirl on Twitter and Instagram, writing:
“ElastiGirl, hear me out. I know we known each other for 5 hours. But you’re the love of my life! Never seen a combo of beauty and savage like you before! We can spend the rest of our lives fighting crime together! JuJu & ElastiGirl the Duo the world needs!”
He hash-tagged it “#Thickkkk” and “#Incredibles2,” the former a reference to ElastiGirl’s body shape.

She’s a keeper
While Mr. Incredible would likely have a lot to say about Smith-Schuster’s declaration to his wife — the 21-year-old erased Mr. Incredible to put himself in the photo with Elastigirl — there’s also the small matter of their existing in two different realms.
But she’s smart, has superpowers, and is raising three super kids, so we can definitely see the appeal.
