Equipped with a U.S. Post Office container filled with water balloons, Watt launched fastballs at his teammates as they came off school buses.

“Get off the buses,” Watt yelled while trying to pelt his teammates.

One of his teammates, who wasn’t caught on camera, was able to give Watt a taste of his own medicine, hitting him in the shoulder.

Watt quickly reached into his bin and tried to retaliate.

Nearly 12,000 fans were expected to pack Latrobe Memorial Stadium, but the rain, lightning and thunder rolled in and didn’t stop, forcing the team to cancel the long-awaited event.

Steelers defensive captain Cam Heyward tweeted on Saturday apologizing to Steeler Nation.

The team also was forced to cancel Saturday’s public practice at St. Vincent College due to possible storms.

Instead, the team will hold a practice closed to the public in Pittsburgh at the UMPC Rooney Sports Complex on the South Side.
