On Saturday, No. 23 Ole Miss men’s basketball had a pretty tough time holding off a less-than-stellar Auburn Tigers squad, as the Rebels just barely squeaked out a 2-point win. Auburn’s Frankie Sullivan missed a three as time expired, making the game’s hero junior guard and all-around spaz Marshall Henderson, who sank two free throws to make the difference in the final score. He was also second in scoring for the Rebels with 15 points, but we only care about those two points, because they show how clutch Henderson thinks he is.
That’s why, when the clock expired, Henderson made his way to the Auburn student section, as you can see in that delightful GIF above that was posted by College Hoops Journal (H/T to Storming the Floor). As you can see, Henderson is reminding the Tigers fans that he goes to Ole Miss, which is why he is extending the front of his jersey in an outward manner, as if to say, “Excuse me, opposing fans. Have you seen this jersey? It is mine.”
Or perhaps he just wanted to know if he got any ketchup on it. Either way, the above GIF is glorious, and there are many reasons why, but I wanted to highlight my favorites in our latest Scene Breakdown.
White Hat Bro – There are few things I love more on this planet than tough guy college kids who act like they would actually fight an athlete if he entered the stands, but watching this bro waving his hands as he runs behind his friends is definitely one of them. (The exact opposite of this type of guy is the shorter bro in the orange shirt who sort of fades into the crowd when his boys suddenly become the toughest men on Earth.)
Blossoming Bieber Cut Bro – So much young, white sports fan angst in one middle finger. Again, I’d love to see this young SEC haircut* stand one-on-one with Henderson. Oh how I bet he’d flex then.
The “I’m So Angry I could Take My Hat Off” Bro – “OH GOD I’M SO ANGRY AT YOU MARSHALL HENDERSON! I COULD JUST RIP MY HAT OFF AND SCREAM, ‘F*CK YOU’ OVER AND OVER!”
Sideways Middle Finger Kid – This kid just scrolls in from the left with both middle fingers out like that weird robot guy from Chappelle’s Show.
Shaggy Hair Clapping Guy – First, he’s booing and pointing with his two middle fingers, and then suddenly he claps because, “F*ck this guy, but this is awesome!”
Smiling White Polo Guy – This guy on the right, he’s my absolute favorite. Is he smiling because he sees the same hilarity in this entire scenario? Or is he smiling because he’s about to rip Henderson’s spine out? I like to think it’s both.
Jim Ross’ Pissed Off Twin Brother – “What a bah gawd jackass.”
*I don’t know why SEC Hair has never been a tag on this site before, but I will rectify this injustice.
