The dawn of the meme era has brought countless examples of sad fans being memorialized on the Internet. On Friday during the Virginia-Virginia Tech game, a Cavaliers fan wisely recognized the situation and made sure to flip the script.

The Virginia Cavaliers had lost 15 straight games to the Virginia Tech Hokies and looked to be on their way to a 16th straight loss. However, a late fumble in the end zone helped Virginia secure a 39-30 win.

The woman in the video likely would not have been immortalized with the win had she remained sad. Instead, she might just end up immortalized as sad-turned-happy Virginia fan. That’s always better!
