Alex Morgan Goal Inspires Young WSU Fan To Flash The Camera

What's the best way to celebrate an amazing goal at soccer's highest level? For one young fan in the stands, it meant waiting until the camera was pointed squarely at him, lifting up his Washington State Cougars shirt and flashing the camera. After Alex Morgan buried a goal to put the USA in front of Japan, the ESPN cameras panned to the crowd, looking for that priceless reaction shot as fans celebrated with utter jubilation. Little did they know, this young WSU fan was waiting for his moment.

Here's an animated gif of the young man, lifting up his WSU shirt to give the camera a flash. Call it a truffle shuffle, call it the happy dance or call it whatever you want: It was awesome.
