Kid Wins Staring Contest With ESPN Live Broadcast


As anyone with internet access will tell you, the best thing about sporting events is not the actual, you know, sporting, but rather the new memes a televised game can inspire. (Crying piccolo girl, crying saxophone girl, every kiss cam that has ever gone wrong.) In the case of a recent game in the College World Series between the TCU Horned Frogs and Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, we were given this child, who stared directly into ESPN’s cameras and pulled a full-on dramatic chipmunk followed by a side-eye-filled dance break.

I do not know who won the game and I don’t care to find out. I also don’t know who this kid is, but that I’d really like to find out so as to inquire about his expert camera-trolling skills. Young freckle-faced genius, if you’re reading this, please teach us your ways.
