If you're an Oklahoma City Thunder fan bummed out about Monday's furious late-game comeback falling short and the Memphis Grizzlies holding on for a 111-105 overtime win in Game 2 that knotted their best-of-seven first-round series at one game apiece, these two fans probably represent your pain, sadness and frustration. If you're a Grizzlies fan, they are basically the bear version of catnip. (Picnic baskets?)
Either way, this — as captured during TNT's postgame show — is a phenomenally arresting bit of video:
Awwww, man. You poor dears. I just want to reach out and hug them and tell them it's all going to be all right. I mean, I don't know for a fact that it will be, now that the Grizz have snagged home-court advantage headed back to the Grindhouse for Games 3 and 4, but I at least want to tell them that it is. Anything to put a smile on those sad-stunned faces.
Take heart, you crestfallen Thunder fans. Thursday's a brand new day, and another chance to get back on the right side of this series. And if nothing else, as one of the greatest poets of all time once wrote, you've got each other, and that's a lot for love. Now let's give it a shot, huh?
