After Maryland's loss to Middle Tennessee State on Saturday, watching other fans react on the outside how I was feeling on the inside brings a smile to my face. After all, Terps fans shouldn't be the only ones who are allowed to be miserable.
Imagine my excitement when I saw a clip -- albeit from two weeks ago -- of a Clemson fan absolutely pouting in the stands after the Tigers' 30-27 loss to Georgia Tech. Clemson was down 24-0 in the second quarter before rallying to take a 27-24 lead, only to let the Yellow Jackets boot a pair of field goals late in the fourth to seal the win.
The Clemson fan on the right in this video wears his emotions on his sleeve. He sits there for a few minutes writhing in agony, putting his hat over his face, practically crying, slapping the bleachers and doubling over in pain, to name a few (over)reactions.
The best part? ESPN was watching the whole time. The announcing crew, led by Chris Fowler, mocks the kid off-air for a few minutes. Fowler even busts out the Telestrator pen to circle the kid as if he's drawing up a play.
"It's just sunk in. It sunk in. We came back from 24 down and still lost by a field goal," Fowler said, as if to narrate the fan's thoughts.
"Let's not giggle," he added, hoping to regain his composure in time to go back on air and sum up the game's final moments.
Enjoy the video, anyone who dislikes Clemson or has experienced a loss that made you want to do what this guy does.
