At least he learned his freaking lesson.
Here’s a shocker: Smashing glass hurts. You might remember the wild Georgia fan who went into full Tasmanian devil mode after Jacob Eason tossed a touchdown pass to Isaiah McKenzie, lifting the Bulldogs to a 28-27 victory over Missouri on Saturday night.
The guy, Michael DiNardo, has basked in his fame after the pain. He appeared on The Paul Finebaum Show on SEC Network on Monday, because why not?
Finebaum asked DiNardo about the incident and — surprise! — the fan voiced regret for a move that led to 12 stitches.
“I just want to say it was so stupid what I did,” DiNardo said on the show. “I shouldn’t be glorified for being an idiot. I was an idiot that night.”
Still, he was pumped about Eason’s late magic trick.
“I knew he had it in him,” DiNardo continued. “But it was fourth down, fourth-and-10, and it was a big throw. And he made the play, and I just lost it, because I know he has so much potential for his future with the Bulldogs. It was really exciting to see that throw.”
He went on to say that he loves the Bulldogs “with all my heart” and that his emotions got the better of him. On the glass incident, he said, “I didn’t think it was going to bust. … In the moment, I wasn’t thinking straight.”
Still, he became a sensation. He said nurses passed around the video and laughed at him during his short visit to the hospital.
Then there’s this interesting nugget: He said he plans to be in Oxford, Miss., on Saturday when Georgia faces Ole Miss.
Will there be an encore if the Bulldogs pull off another dramatic win?
“I definitely,” he said, “won’t be near any glass.”
Everyone please look at what I have to deal with on a daily basis.
