The San Antonio Spurs beat the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday night, giving them a valuable 2-0 lead in the Western Conference Finals. A 2-0 series lead is pretty exciting stuff, especially for one fan who was caught screaming "We did it!" at the top of his lungs shortly after the final buzzer.
Remarkably, this is the second time we've highlighted a Spurs fan this month. You might recall that the Spurs-Warriors game, one which many have labeled as a classic, was almost ruined thank to the shrieks and screams from one loud female fan.
Aside from the fact the "We did it!" comment brings up the ancient debate of fans referring to themselves as members of the team, it's sort of odd that this individual chose such a phrase in the first place. Winning Game 2 doesn't seem to warrant a "We did it!" celebration, does it? Aren't those types of comments usually reserved for when your team wins it all and hoists a trophy? If the Spurs end up taking the title, let's just hope this gentleman is in attendance. The sports world deserves to hear his reaction if this is how he reacts to a Game 2 victory.

Maybe the "we did it" is reference to holding on to win after nearly blowing the lead we...uh...they did.
I know from experience I've displayed similar excitement in a win under similar circumstances across multiple sports and games that had far less meaning than a conference final.
Also has it been verified that this was indeed a fan and not someone off the Spurs bench?
Either way GO SPURS GO!
