Kerrzy's Notebook: Tough Loss?

We’ve all been there – you’re on the road, decked out in your team colors following your favorite club.

Things started off okay, but now they’re down and out, it looks like a lost cause. And then, no, it couldn’t be – a glimmer of hope that turns into a full-fledged comeback!

As your team inches closer and closer to victory you forget all about that glum despair you were feeling in the pit of your stomach, and you now you can’t sit still. But then just like that, the game is over, the comeback fell short and you’re left wondering what happened.

Now for most of us, the above emotions happen within and for the most part, remain private. There are times though, thanks to cameramen at sporting events, when those emotions become all too public.

Fanhouse brings us the story of two Clemson Tigers fans that had their sports-related despair turned into a good laugh for three ESPN analysts.

The Tigers were down 24-0 to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in Georgia back on September 10th before scoring 27 unanswered points, capped by a 53-yard field goal, to tie the game up and pull ahead.

This is the part where the dejected fans start going crazy.

Unfortunately for the Tigers, the lead wouldn’t last and the Yellow Jackets pulled back in front in the final minute for the 30-27 win.

Now like I said – for most of us, the emotions we feel at this point are fairly private. For these two Clemson fans, they become the punch line for Craig James, Jesse Palmer and Chris Fowler, who have a great time at their expense.

Poor guys, but you’ve got to admit – that’s funny stuff! So remember, wait until you get home (or out of sight) to let your true emotions show!
