When the "Good Job, Good Effort" kid exploded the Internet following the Miami Heat's Game 5 loss to the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night, there were some sinister minds out there wondering if he was actually a Celtics fan trolling the Heat players. The horror!
Thankfully, those rumors have been put to rest. Thanks to the work of NBC Miami, we've learned that the kid is 9-year old Jack Meyer, a longtime fan with a Heat-themed bed that's "super cozy."
Jack has been a Heat fan since he was 3 or 4. He loves to play ball with his dad, and enjoys collecting the team’s memorabilia in his room. His Heat-themed bed is "super cozy," he says.
When asked why he encouraged his favorite team following the devastating loss, Meyer said that he thought LeBron James was "fighting so hard" and that "you can't give up this easily" because "you always have the power to win." If this kid is not the commencement speaker at the University of Miami's graduation next year, I'll be very disappointed.
