The most annoying UVU fan ever sat behind me last night
He was dressed like a poor man’s Vanilla Ice with some kind of gold chain and flat brimmed hat to go along with his UVU shirt.
He made approximately 93 jokes about TJ Haws being bald to the point where I started to feel bad for him and his lack of creativity.
He would go “Eyyyyyy” every time UVU would do something well, like all annoying high school kids do these days. Not sure what wins out between this one and “got eem” for the Gen-Z phrase of choice.
By the time a BYU win was imminent and the game was no longer in question (probably with about 4 minutes to go) he resorted to trying to come up with non-basketball smack. At one point he yelled out, “Isn’t it funny how white BYU is?!” (This guy is also white, btw) Everyone just kinda looked at him for a second and then went back to watching the game.
It was just an annoying viewing experience for me all around. I kept wishing he would leave the game early, but he stayed until the bitter end. Just in time to watch Jake “the tool” Toolson and his trusty sidekick, Connor, display some terrible sportsmanship at the end of the game.
Moral of the story: the inferiority complex at UVU is very real for some people and I’m not sure why. I like UVU. Everyone likes UVU. My wife went there, my sister and brother-in-law currently both go there, and I might even go there at some point for some graduate work. As Dwight Schrute would say in the murder in Savannah episode of the office, “Everyone just caaaaalm doooown.”
