Chris Wondolowski, a striker for the San Jose Earthquakes, had to serve the first red card suspension of his 15-year career on Wednesday night. But instead of serving his one-game suspension at home, watching the Earthquakes take on the Philadelphia Union on his couch, Wondolowski found something better to do.

Wondolowski decided he’d serve his suspension at the game, sitting with the San Jose Ultras, the Earthquakes’ supporters group. And it shouldn’t be a surprise that he had the time of his life.

He led chants and put on an Ultras shirt.

And then when the Earthquakes scored a goal, he took both of his shirts off, waved them above his head, and cheered like there’s no tomorrow.

A player spending a game cheering in the fan section is one of the coolest things that can happen in sports. And even though the Earthquakes lost to the Union, the experience of watching a game with one of the team’s most-loved players is priceless.
