Braves’ Ozzie Albies camera stare the latest entry into the pantheon of hilarious sports memes

Ozzie Albies is staring into your soul.

The Braves notched their first World Series since 1995 on Tuesday, polishing off an unreal season (really, from August onward), gaining momentum like a freight train and finishing off the Astros in Game 6 on Tuesday, 7-0.

For all the dominance the Braves have had since Aug. 1, they’ve had just as much fun on the field. Exhibit 1: Ozzie Albies.

The Braves infielder had himself quite the meme-able moment in the deciding Game 6, when he spotted one of Fox’s in-ground cameras in the infield, doing his best “Ace Ventura” impersonation between innings.

 As mentioned, it was quite the meme-able moment, and people provided plenty of memes off of it:

  • Aaron Rodgers owns the Chicago Bears.

  • At least, that’s what he told Bears fans after scoring the game-sealing touchdown on Sunday.

  • With a 22-5 career record against the Bears, he’s not wrong.

The Green Bay Packers may be the only publicly owned team in football, but quarterback Aaron Rodgers is diversifying his investments.

With just over four minutes left in Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears, Rodgers scrambled for a six-yard rushing touchdown to put the Packers ahead 24-14, all but sealing the win for visiting Green Bay.

As boos rained down from the Chicago crowd, Rodgers jeered in response, which was caught on camera by the broadcast.

“All my f—ing life, I own you,” Rodgers shouted as his teammates surrounded him in the end zone. “I still own you. I still own you.”

After the game, Rodgers joked about his comment.

Jacksonville State’s Hail Mary delivers latest FCS-FBS upset

Greg Seitz has been at Jacksonville State for nearly three decades, through a Division II national championship, conference titles and FCS playoff runs.

But the Gamecocks athletic director and longtime staffer has never seen anything quite as big as that walk-off Hail Mary to beat Florida State 20-17 last Saturday night.

“When you consider just where that program has been … I think that probably in my mind is probably the biggest win in Jacksonville State football history,” Seitz said.

It may not have even the biggest FCS win so far this season, however. It’s only mid-September and FCS teams have eight wins over FBS programs, most notably Jacksonville State’s upset and Montana’s opening 13-7 win over then-No. 20 Washington.

It’s the most such wins in a season since FCS teams pulled off nine of them in 2017. And they’re just getting started, perhaps benefitting from spring seasons that
