There was a young Colorado State fan in the stands at Rupp Arena for the Rams’ Thursday tournament game against Missouri that was just a little bit more devoted to his team than the others.
It takes uncommon devotion, you see, to wear a full ram costume while cheering on your team – the ridiculousness of the costume (and the profuse sweating that surely came with it) be damned.
Thankfully for this fan, he was rewarded in more ways than one for dressing up. First was the TV camera time he received courtesy of TBS. And of course, there was the Rams’ 84–72 triumph over Missouri — which means that we could very well see this costumed CSU fan again on Saturday in his team’s match-up against top overall seed Louisville.
At least, we hope so.
