Imagine anticipating something different and amazing, then having it all fall apart as you watch on national television. That just happened for all of Twitter at the end of the Duke's Mayo Bowl on Wednesday afternoon.
As Wisconsin was closing out a 42-28 win over Wake Forest, all of Twitter was excited to see Badgers head coach Paul Chryst get doused in mayonnaise like a poorly-made club sandwich. Unfortunately, the punchline didn't deliver on its premise.
Twitter was fired up like it hadn't been since two llamas were running free in Arizona a few years ago.

People were legit angry:
As my colleague Stephen Douglas said, this was a "Miracle Whiff."
