Back in the day, if a fan did something notable at a sporting event, they got their moment on the jumbotron and that was it. One quick moment in the spotlight, then nothing.
Now it’s different. If you do something notable these day it gets caught on camera by somebody, and then it gets published on hundreds of sports websites and blogs. After that it’s turned into a GIF and it spreads all over the internet—meaning that one single moment lives on forever.
It’s kind of crazy when you think about it.
In any case, today we’re going to give you a whole list of such moments. Some of these people would probably rather have these moments back. Others might be proud of their internet fame. Either way, they’re all entertaining.
The chick on the right is dancing like she's at a Phish concert, while the guy in the white suit is dancing like Ed Grimsley. Meanwhile, the guy on the far left is wearing gold booty shorts.
So yeah, this one has pretty much everything.
35. Baylor Crazies
They know how to boogie in the bayou.
34. Funky LSU Daddio
This guy is way less cool than the last guy.
33. Meanwhile, in Kentucky...
This poor guy wasn't nearly as impressive as the beer made him think he'd be.
32. Romanian Rugby Fan
Apparently this guy was celebrating a home run. I'd say it must have been an important one, but we're talking about the Royals, here.
31. Happy Royals Fan
This kid's not going to let a little rain spoil his chance to make a fool of himself.
30. Painted Mizzou Fan
Not to be outdone by the Mizzou kid, here's this guy...yikes.
29. Painted Baylor Fan
No arthritis here. This guy is pretty limber for his age.
28. Dancing Chargers Grandpa
Get it? Dancing penguins? Happy Feet?
Seriously, though, I have no idea what's going on here, but it probably has something to do several cases of beer and somebody finding a good deal on penguin costumes.
27. Happy Feet
You can just tell this guy knows how to party. I mean, look at that hat.
26. Dancing Ravens Fan
Where have all the Notre Dame fans gone this season?
Go home Brewers fan, your drunk.
24. Dancing Badgers
The guys in the booth got a big kick out of this woman's dance skills, so they sent their roving reporter down to talk to her.
But this wouldn't be the last time we saw her...
23. Astros Fan, Part 1
Yep, that's right. A camera guy spotted her in the crowd at another game–yes, she actually went to two Houston Astros games this year—so they put her on TV again.
22. Astros Fan, Part 2
Come on, now, admit it—that's the cutest damn thing you've seen all day.
21. Adorable Lakers Kid
I don't know if the woman on the left is the kid's mom or not, but she seems fairly concerned that he might just be embarrassing himself on television. (And I'd say her concern was justified.)
20. Adorable Seahawks Kid
As a general rule of thumb, if you want to avoid looking like an idiot while dancing, keep your arms to your side. In fact, I'm pretty sure there's an entire Will Smith song about this.
19. Dancing Heat Fans
Yep, this is one of those moments that these guys are going to want back when they graduate and start looking for work.
18. Hillbilly Gangnam Style
Check out the reaction from this dude's lady friend. I think she'd be more comfortable if he sat the hell down.
17. Unofficial Colts Cheerleader
There's a lot of stuff going on in the background here, but the best thing has to be the guy holding the pretend axe while doing the robot.
(FYI, USC was playing Stanford, whose mascot is a tree. Hence the axes and chainsaws.)
16. USC Robot
Just your typical Penn State hockey fan. Move along now...
15. Penn State Hockey Fan
A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do to connect with your daughters. More power to him.
14. Father-Daughter Bonding
That's the problem with hot chicks—when they're at the club, nobody tells them that they suck at dancing, so they just don't know.
13. Dancing UNLV Chick
How appropriate, given that this month marks the 30th anniversary of Michael Jackson's iconic "Thriller" video. (It came out December 2, 1983.)
Don't you wish this was your mother? Sure, she might embarrass you by dancing like this on TV, but at least she's not a stick-in-the-mud.
11. The Grandma Boody
Seriously, this goes on every night inside "The Clevelander" nightclub inside Marlins Park.
Wholesome family entertainment, right?
10. The Marlins Cabaret Girls
This guy is actually at a Rays game. Obviously he got pretty bored, and probably a little over-served.
