Crying Michael Jordan meme gets Chris Long treatment

Patriots defensive end Chris Long tuned into the NCAA Championship and couldn't help but use a certain meme to show support for his dad's former school.


Villanova won last night's NCAA National Championship against the University of North Carolina with a clutch three-point shot.

Over the course of the game, newly signed Patriot Chris Long put his fine-tuned Twitter skills to good use. Preparing for a possible Villanova loss, Chris showed his dad, Hall of Famer Howie Long, some love with playful shots at his alma mater. He shared several crying Michael Jordan memes, as well as provided some expert color commentary.

During the game, Chris played commentator and narrated the score of the game when the Tar Heels and Wildcats were within six points of each other late in the second half.

Once the game was over, Chris refused to squander the opportunity to use a good meme.

While he was able to spin the meme as tears of joy for the Wildcats, Tar Heels were not as lucky.

With Twitter fire like this, we can't wait to see the next big event Chris live tweets.
