Guy wearing Jim Boeheim mask cheers on Syracuse while terrifying us all (GIF)


The 4th-seeded Syracuse Orange upended the top-seeded Indiana Hoosiers by a score of 61-50 on Thursday night, smothering Indiana’s offense with its vaunted 2-3 zone implemented by head coach Jim Boeheim and executed nearly flawlessly by the team.

Syracuse now have moved on to the East Regional Final, where the Orange will take on No. 3 seed Marquette on Saturday night. Hopefully, one fan who was in attendance on Thursday evening will not be able to make it, because, man, he is seriously creeping me out. I’m talking serious nightmare fuel here, kids.

Behold, the Jim Boeheim Face Mask Man, a fan wearing perhaps the most realistically terrifying mask of all time.

Goodness gracious. Perhaps it’s simply the camera playing tricks on us, but it’s so darn lifelike. If you just saw this guy walking down the street, you might suspect that he pulled his best Hannibal Lecter impression and peeled the flesh straight off Jim Boeheim’s skull. Creepy.
