Man At Occupy Wall Street Is Just A Lost College Football Fan

One of the main draws of watching ESPN's College GameDay is looking for fans' signs in the background. Sometimes, they're not necessarily signs ESPN would like you to see, but they wind up on the air anyway. Other times, they're just highly enjoyable. And today, one fan took the internet by storm with a seriously impressive collection of GameDay signs - especially so since it seems this one fan made them all.
The issue: the fan wasn't at GameDay - he (well, looks like a he, though you can't see a face in any photo) - was at Occupy Wall Street. You can see our favorite of his signs at the top of this post (we can't resist any mention of SEC speed - one of our weaknesses), and many more here. The collection has it all - references to Charlie Weis' (and Mark Mangino's) size, Virginia Tech's soft schedules, Alabama fans' hygiene, and in what will surely stand as an iconic image from the protests, Kirk Herbstreit himself.
And though he calls himself a "lost GameDay fan," he appears right at home in the middle of the protests. And why not? OccupyWallStreet.org says the protests represent a "leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions." There's room for a wisecracking college football fan in there, too, we think. And again, as a fan of a Big East school, we say about the Radiohead sign:
...That's just low. Do we at least get Jeff Mangum? The conference is in enough disarray that he seems as good an option as any.
