BUFFALO, N.Y. — David "Biddy" Cummings is the University of Minnesota Duluth fan — superfan if his Twitter bio is to be believed — who got ESPN famous after the University of Minnesota Duluth's semifinal win over Providence College in the NCAA Frozen Four semifinals.
"We won and they panned to me and I was crying," said the 2011 UMD graduate, wearing the maroon mohawk hat his mom made for him out of yarn and a stocking cap.
The video of Cummings' happy tears as he tugged his hat-hair and his friend Jake Klein consoling him made the sports network and ultimately became a gif. Messages from friends poured in, he said.
