Virginia fan uses suit and tie to con his way onto the sideline.
During the ACC tournament, a UVA fan by the name of Danny noticed that everyone involved on the Cavaliers sideline had one thing in common: a suit with a Virginia orange tie. So Danny went out and bought a suit, an orange tie, and found himself roaming freely on the Virginia bench and celebrating their ACC championship on the court.
With his family in the stands taking photos, Danny was on the right side of the cordon when ushers roped off the court as Virginia closed in on the win. He celebrated with the players as confetti blew, was handed his ACC champion hat and T-shirt by the team manager, and made sure to get into the handshake line.
When he showed up on TV shaking Mike Krzyzewski’s hand, he says “about 20 people messaged me asking what the hell I did this time.”
Just goes to show what a little ingenuity and brass balls can do for a fan. View all the pictures of Danny courtside, and even a video, here!
