Jesse Jackson was in the stands for tonight’s March Madness game between top-seeded Louisville and his alma mater, North Carolina A&T. His presence created quite a stir on social media, especially after a giant yellow bulldog photobombed his picture with sports journalist Jerry Tipton.
We’ve heard of Yellow Dog Democrats before, but “Democrat with a Yellow Dog” is a new one.
Unfortunately for Jackson, A&T lost by a score of 79-48. For those not familiar with basketball, that’s really bad.
Jesse Jackson is about to run up on Rick Pitino during this time out & tell him to stop all this black on black violence. #MarchMadness

As much as we love underdogs, we’re glad Louisville won this one. It’s not that we have anything against North Carolina A&T, but if the Reverend’s sideline antics became a meme, we would be stuck writing about it for the next two weeks. Thank goodness we dodged that bullet.
