Wayne Tinkle Celebrating While Wearing A Personalized Shirt Mocking People For Picking Oregon State To Finish Last In The Pac-12 Is Fucking Awesome

Yep, this is the move to make. There are two key things to this shirt. First, is his dad's initials are on the sleeve there. His dad was the dean of students for Loyola Chicago and Wayne talked about growing up on Loyola's campus before he moved to Spokane. That alone is a great touch and you see him get choked up talking about his dad. But the 12 in the Pac-12? Yeah that's the preseason poll: 

Having that shirt on and ready to go is fucking awesome. Break that out whenever you can. Yeah, sure, it took a run in the Pac-12 Tournament to even get the auto bid, but they were the 5 seed. It's not like they were close to finishing last. Now they are 40 minutes away from a Final Four. That's fucking awesome, I don't care that you're a 12 seed. You're only the second 12 seed ever to make an Elite Eight. 

Is it petty? For sure. But whatever it takes this time of the year. They wore 12 shirts at the Pac-12 Tournament to prove a point now Tinkle's family got him a personalized one. That's just A+ motivation. What a damn run.
