CNU Got Served Some Coldplay

Years ago, I stopped using the word "gay" to describe situations that were lame/strange/weird because it could be interpreted as an offensive slur towards the gay community and discreetly promoted homophobia.

The hilarious "you know how I know you're gay" skit from the movie "40 Year Old Virgin" saturated our lexicon with the word.

After watching this video of a D3 college baseball team singing in unison the words to Neil Diamond's Sweet Caroline towards their opponent, the first thing that came to mind was the way Paul Rudd described liking Coldplay. The dugout performance starts at the 24 second mark of the video.

My favorite part was Lynchburg's Jeff Taylor, number 7, embarrassing Christopher Newport University's Matt Neal, number 25, in a dance off. Neal got served with ease by Taylor and Neal's final sliding double thrust comeback move was not even dancing.

Taylor's cranking out Soulja Boy at the end of the video was impressive too.
