You underestimate just how miraculous it was for the ****ing terrible WSU defense to actually make a stop.

But really, I agree with you. I even doubted the authenticity of the screenshot. But given that I recalled your previous post, I shrugged at the possibility of spreading fake news and ran to this thread with it.
