Michigan Tech defeated Bowling Green in a double-overtime thriller over the weekend to take home the WCHA conference championship. The whole highlight reel paints a picture of a pretty intense and emotional game, but there’s one single clip that you’ll want to pay attention to.
It might be the greatest sports GIF that you’ll ever lay eyes upon.
Here’s the masterpiece in question:
There are so many things I love about this GIF, but the most important aspect is the pure, devastating agony of defeat interrupted by unadulterated parade of joy from the victors.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a one-shot that captures both spectrums of sports emotions quite as well as this one does. It’s like performance art. It’s perfect.
