In Omaha, exhilaration filled the air as LSU Tigers fans were overcome with joy at the end of the fifth inning. With a commanding 10-2 lead in the deciding Game 3 of the College World Series against the Florida Gators on Monday night, their team seemed destined for their first championship since 2009.
Celebrations erupted among fans, with intense hugging, loud cheering, and the sheer enjoyment of what appeared to be an impending victory.
However, the jubilation was not universal among all Tigers' supporters when the final out of the inning was declared at Charles Schwab Field. One woman stood out from the crowd thanks to ESPN's coverage of the final moments, becoming an internet sensation due to her noticeable lack of enthusiasm.
The ESPN cameras panned to a man dressed in a purple LSU shirt, seemingly in anticipation of a celebratory fist-bump from the woman standing next to him.
Contrarily, she responded with a blatant rejection, waving her hand dismissively in front of his face, her expression teeming with unmistakable discontent.

Despite the woman's obvious displeasure, the man didn't cease his attempts to elicit a positive response from her, resulting in what appeared to be her verbal refusal as he persisted in speaking to her.
With her arms folded, the woman eventually gestured towards the field while engaging in conversation with the man before the camera scene shifted elsewhere.
Although it's uncertain what the man was articulating to the woman, it was evident she had no interest in entertaining the discussion.
Despite the tension in the crowd, that LSU fan undoubtedly revelled in the match's outcome, as the Tigers achieved a significant 18-4 victory. This win came just a day after a crushing 24-4 defeat by the Gators, keeping them afloat in the best-of-three final series.
In achieving this triumph, the Tigers made history as the first school to secure a baseball and basketball championship in the same year. This accolade was compounded by the Lady Tigers defeating the Iowa Hawkeyes to clinch the NCAA women's basketball tournament.
Marking their seventh championship in total, the Tigers' victory on the baseball diamond was indeed a moment of significant achievement.
Strike three, you're out.
