This dude watching the end of the Waste Management at the Super Bowl must be protected at all costs

February 14, 2022

For what felt like the 50th time in the last 10 years, the Waste Management Phoenix Open went to a playoff, thus bleeding over into the first quarter of the Super Bowl. This put golf fans across America in the unenviable position of being the guy who has to ask "can we flip back to the golf?" at the Super Bowl party, a question undoubtedly met with 1,000-yard stares the likes of which you've never seen.

Then again, thanks to technology, there are still countless ways to get your golf fix. Two-TV setups have become all the rage in homes of diehard sports fans/degenerate gamblers (slowly raises hand), not to mention the fact we all carry around televisions in our pockets. If you really wanted to catch Scottie Scheffler and Patrick Cantlay dueling it out for three holes at TPC Scottsdale, you found a way. 

Enter this dude at the Super Bowl, who most certainly found a way to see the end of Scheffler's maiden win despite literally being inside SoFi Stadium at the Big Game. He also may not have even known that former LPGA pro Jeehae Lee was behind him, capturing the moment out of appreciation:

If you look closely, you'll notice the game is very much underway. We would have still respected this guy if he was streaming during the pre-game, but to keep the stream on and appear extremely focused on it while the Super Bowl you paid an inordinate amount of money to attend is happening is dedication of the highest order. If we didn't know better, we'd say he probably had money on Cantlay or Scheffler. If not, he's truly the No. 1 golf fan on the planet. Pure love of the game.
