Crying Northwestern Kid Screams His Way To Internet Stardom
If your team is losing and you're crying about it, the best way to get over it is having the entire internet think it's pretty awesome.
The Northwestern Wildcats celebrated their first NCAA Tournament experience by winning their first ever tournament game on Thursday afternoon.
That meant the Wildcats would move on to face #1 seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs on Saturday. As most would expect, Northwestern would eventually lose to the Bulldogs but not before putting up a valiant effort.
Late in the game, a kid, who we can only assume lives and breathes Northwestern basketball lost it when a controversial call went against the Wildcats.
When I mean "lost it" he really lost it. The little guy was visibly crying mouth wide open screaming, and stretching his mouth rubber bands as far as they could.
The internet didn't miss it either. The video I posted has over 250,000 views and memes have popped up all over the internet featuring the kid and his tirade.
