I was ranked the No. 1 animated GIF of the year 2011. I am Michigan punter Will Hagerup, perfectly captured in the instant in which he realizes he has lost the snap. College punters, man. Either they're freaks of nature who can boot the ball 140 yards, or they screw up colossally. There's no middle ground.

(16) Hello, my name is ELATED NETS FAN.

You may be curious of what, exactly, I am reacting to. Well, knock it off, because it doesn't matter. One of the great things about animated GIFs is that they're refreshingly free of context.

VOTE!
