I was prepared to hate this, but that was really unexpectedly awesome.

I think red clover put his comment in the wrong thread.

That dude is fucking fearless and magical. I want to cast him in bronze and place him on my mantle.

Life and how to live it.

Yes!!! I think being a jumbotron operator would be a joyful profession. As a Celtics fan, I typically go to several games a year and they seem to have a knack for capturing the "hey, I'm just gonna do my thing and have fun and hopefully the people around me will start having fun, too" type fan.

Plus, we have Gino.

I think it would kill me if I discovered this was anything but completely spontaneous. I just love how the guy is sitting there looking half-bored only to transform into a complete and total ham once his (I'm assuming?) mom taps him to let him know they're on camera.

Dude sort of looks like Henry Grubstick.

I swear this is a double... sorta. No offense, but the original post was much better ... video by itself is slim pickings. Yay, good dancer?

God I love this video. Watched it all the time when it made the rounds last year.

My two favorite parts:

1. The quiet contemplation you see him exercising for the first few seconds as he rolls his hand/wrist. Once his companion gives him the heads-up he's on the Jumbo, he then spends a moment or two thinking, "Hey, maybe I'll just use this moment to quietly fist-pump in my seat. MAN HELL NO" and then he's off.

2. The dude in the lime green shirt at 1:30. Every single person this kid interacts with immediately rises to his level of enthusiasm, but this guy looks embarrassed to be alive.

Desire to find proof that this is set up is proof that you're entirely too cynical.

And here's a video of him being interviewed after this video went viral.

Sorry about this being a double, it did not show up on on my search for 'Celtics' 'Fan' 'Celebration'.
(I'm shocked - I was sure that this will get a million Hell-Yeah's.
The lesson: Don't drink & blog, kids)

on the flip side, it's not technically a double and lots of users who haven't seen it before will now get to...

I think Andy Kaufman spread some seed in the Boston area.
