13 Jumbotron Dreams Come True

in: Featured Article | Sports and Activities

Kids don't want peanuts and crackerjacks anymore. They want their 15 minutes of fame—or at least 15 seconds on a Jumbotron screen.

It’s the small things, folks. Well, it’s usually the small things. But occasionally it’s the really, really big things that make all the difference. These 13 young sports fans demonstrate what it looks like when dreams come true—broadcast a few dozen feet high on a Jumbotron screen, for all to see.

1. The Total Meltdown

When Deadspin shared a Vine this morning of a young Marlins fan getting on camera and “completely loosing his mind,” they knew they’d struck viral gold. The Internet has been joyfully sharing the small fan’s hilarious Jumbotron reaction, and we must admit. It’s the best thing we’ve seen all week.

2. The Headbanger

Someone put this kid get on the giant screen already!

3. The Double Freakout

It’s that exact moment—right when they notice themselves on the screen—that’s where the magic lives. It’s like they just won the lottery, only their faces have just been on a huge screen at a public event for 2.5 seconds. Same thing.

4. The Shakira Hip Shake

We’re not sure which “old school dance” this kid is channeling, but it’s workin’.

5. The “O” Face
