In my basketball circle, a hodge-podge of faculty and staff (age-range 20s-60s), we send out pregame Youtubes to egg each other on.
When injuries happen, this banter is missed, especially from the more feisty guys. In one recent case, an old hand named Scott injured his knee, and was out for several months. Once the word broke that Scott was returning, one of the guys teased “please substitute Scott for rainbow, that’s how I feel right now.”
I don’t know how I missed this viral hit, but with over 38 million views, the star of the Youtube has been seeing double-rainbows all the way to the bank. At first glance, I thought his reaction was intentionally exaggerated, and perhaps a hoax. After re-watching the video, Mr. Rainbow seems to be sincere, although drugs may have contributed to his unstable emotional state.
And Yes, when Scott returned, we greeted him with the cheers of WHAHOOOOOOO SCOTT!
