I’m usually not one to revel in the misery of others, but this video is just too awesome not to pass along.
The footage shows four exuberant Houston Rockets fans celebrating wildly after Chandler Parsons appeared to save the Rockets from playoff elimination. Their sheer enthusiasm is wonderful to behold — there’s jumping and screaming and botched attempts at hugging — which makes their stunned silence following Damian Lillard’s amazing game-winner all the more heartbreaking/hilarious.
Seriously, this video encapsulates all the great and terrible things about being a sports fan. I wish I could say I commiserate with the pain displayed by those four fans, but I’m too exhausted from a night spent celebrating Portland’s win to feel much of anything.
