ESPN tracks down Auburn fan dad who lost it watching the final play of the Iron Bowl

Jason McKinney’s is one of the first reaction videos I saw, and since it was set to some inspirational music and since I’m a dad and all and because it’s Auburn vs. Alabama, him grabbing his son and screaming “we did it again, boy!” made me cry. Just for a second.

ESPN tracked him down—he’s pretty popular now, as far as Iron Bowl reaction video stars go (don’t worry, you’re still our fave)—to see what it has been like like for “just a normal guy from Alabama who happens to be an Auburn fan” go viral just for being a normal guy from Alabama who happens to be an Auburn fan.

To the idiot: If you find that clip of you rolling around and screaming on the delivery room floor, please get back with us. We’d love to post it.
