Behold the contagious power of The Upset

Last night the lowly Atlanta Hawks up and shocked the NBA world, taking out the greatest team ever darlings of the playoffs, Boston Celtics. A first-round series many bet would be a easy sweep is now tied 2-2.

Prior to the game, the Hawks unveiled a special intro video on the big scoreboard. App State fan Roger H. was there.

I drove from Boone to the Atl and that atmosphere was roooocking. Phillips Arena has never been so loud. At the
beginning, when the PA announcer was announcing the Hawks line ups, he yelled “it’s time to shock the world!” and the lights went out.

On the big screen they first showed clips of Golden State beating Dallas (huge upset). Next they showed the Giants knocking off the Patriots (massive upset). Are you getting this theme?

Then I see Lynch flying through blocking the field goal and hear “And Appalachian State has stunned the college football world!!!” It was awesome. The theme being upsets and the Hawks bidding for the upset.

Anyway, so the Hawks show us some love in their intro. I looked on youtube, and there’s not a good video of it up yet. This is from some guy’s cell phone, terrible quality but proof it’s there. Pay close attention at the 21 second mark. I love it!

And so do I.
