In sports, viral dance crazes are often unexplainable and almost always unstoppable – all you can do is appreciate their beauty before they fade away. RIP, dabbing. RIP, running off on the plug twice.
The latest dance to sweep the sports world started with the Maryland Terrapins’ men’s basketball team. Look at guards Jared Nickens and Jaylen Brantley getting down to Ghost Town’s 1996 hit “My Boo.”
How could you watch this and not want to jump in? It’s perfection. Well, that was the exact thought process of players from schools including Marquette, Virginia Tech, and Villanova.
Check out the response from Villanova’s Mikal Bridges, Eric Paschall, and Kris Jenkins, the hero of the national championship less than two weeks ago:

Here are Virginia Tech’s Seth Allen (who used to play at Virginia) and his teammate Ahmed Hill getting after it:

And finally, Marquette’s Traci Carter and Sacar Anim joining in the action:

The players have exchanged tweets promising more videos to come, and Louisville star Damion Lee wants in, too.
How long is this dance’s shelf life? Will Cris Carter try to explain it? Will it make it into the NBA Playoffs? Will we see Steph dancing to “My Boo” from the bench late in a blowout? These are important questions.
