Being so close to a championship and losing it is never fun. Wisconsin fans are dealing with that pain right now. Their team appeared to be in control against Duke in the second half — before everything fell apart.
While there are a lot of sad Wisconsinites, none are sadder than the man in the video below. I’m not sure if it was an official suicide attempt or simply the act of a drunk college kid who didn’t know how to deal with his feelings, but either way it’s easy to see he wasn’t happy following Wisconsin’s loss.
It’s difficult to make out if anyone was able to break his fall. Thankfully, no serious injuries were reported so we can assume he was just bumped and bruised. If he really wanted to kill himself, he probably needed to climb a bit higher.
Seriously though, getting drunk in public is not the best way to deal with your favorite team losing in heartbreaking fashion. This guy should have done what the rest of us do: Get drunk at home and then cry ourselves to sleep.
