SportsThis Mom Yelling at the TV with Pot Lids Is the Ultimate Usain Bolt Superfan
Filed under: Good moms.
The Olympics bring out unbridled passion in both competitors and fans, but no one can top the Jamaican mother filmed cheering for Usain Bolt. Kendra Hasey posted to Twitter a video of her mom in front of the television, metal cookware lids in hand, screaming for Usain Bolt in his 200m race.
Between cheers of "Come on!", "BOLT!", and "Give it everything!", she clangs the lids, and you almost have to believe that Bolt can hear it in Rio through sheer force of passion. And when Bolt wins, she gives a full-throated scream of joy that is so fierce, I actually teared up.
I need this woman to be with me at all times to make me feel this good: when I wake up to my alarm, when I make the train on time, when I eat my vegetables, when I decide not to have a second dinner at 11 P.M., when I do my laundry, etc. etc. Usain Bolt may be the fastest person in the world, but this woman is the best fan in the world, hands down.
