Football fan who pops beach ball is every misanthrope’s hero

Nobody wants to be that guy—but when the moment comes, what else can you do?

It’s unlikely this Arizona fan was in a bad mood because of the score: the Wildcats trounced UNLV 58-13 on Friday. No, he acted out of the iciness of his shriveled heart, knowing he would become a legend among all those who hate fun and despise whimsy.

Thank you, kind bro, for reminding us why we go to sporting events in the first place: to sit in the vicinity of unaccountable assholes.
