FIU Football Fans Trolling the Golden Panthers' Home Games
If you happened to attend Florida International University's loss to Duke over the weekend at FIU Stadium, you may have noticed some signs of the Dos Equis guy with a panther head, a few poorly drawn faces, and a Chuck Testa reference up on the Jumbotron.
There's an explanation for that -- trolls.
The group of folks doing it -- who say on their Facebook page that they're going to keep bringing posters of FIU-inspired internet memes to all of the Golden Panthers' home games -- have one mission: "To ensure that each FIU game is properly trolled."
On Saturday, they did just that -- there were posters of the "Forever Alone" character in a Duke T-shirt, "Rage Guy" shaped as Roary the Panther, and the aforementioned Dos Equis guy with a panther head, saying, "I don't always win, but when I do, I devastate."
If you're familiar with internet memes, you can bet your bottom dollar these folks come from Reddit. (Don't worry, ma'am; they're from the internet.)
For your viewing pleasure, the group -- which calls itself "The FIU Meme Generators" on Facebook -- has posted a few previews of the signs you may see at upcoming games:
