Maybe you saw this on the broadcast or maybe you didn’t, but at the beginning of the fourth quarter Sunday, FOX cut to a shot of the crowd and this guy was going ballistic:

“What are you looking at? What the f*** are you looking at?” I believe yells the guy, who is actually the University of Pennsylvania’s dean of admissions, Eric Furda, confirmed by Penn alumnus/expert Jonathan Tannenwald:

I love it. Love the passion and the enthusiasm. I’ll assume he’s directing his words to the officials.
Looks like Furda is also a Sixers fan:

He’s one of us, Eric Furda. And I better not hear any complaining from anybody who thinks his behavior is out of line. If anything, his behavior is warranted and welcomed. He’s voicing the frustrations of the entire Eagles fan base after Sunday’s stinker of a game. It’s not like he’s trying to fight Mike Scott or something like that.
If I’m the University of Pennsylvania, I’m giving Furda a raise.
After further review of the play I will take the 15 yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct But I will not lose my passion for Philadelphia and Penn sports! Thanks for all the interview requests but we have a game on Thursday to get ready for which I will watch at home!
