Washington Post– “Jim Plunkett-Cole ran across San Francisco, unnoticed. He was sweaty. He was tired. He wore a U.S flag and a California state flag on his back. But in the bright city lights, people celebrated around him. It was about 10 p.m. on June 12, and the Golden State Warriors had outlasted the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals, winning the championship and avenging last season’s loss. 

He saw the euphoria a city feels when its team wins a championship: Cheering. Drinking. Strangers hugging. Fans dancing. Horns honking.

“The whole city just went absolutely bonkers,” Plunkett-Cole said in a recent phone interview. “I could just see this was such a huge, huge thing, and I felt quite inspired to do some sort of tribute in my normal way.”

Plunkett-Cole’s normal way is not everyone else’s normal way. So the 48-year-old Englishman ran 50 miles through the streets of San Francisco following a route that spells out “Warriors 2017 NBA Champs.”

 

Warriors fans deserve to talk every bit of shit that they can after the amount that they’ve had to take over the past year. After hearing for 12 straight months about how bad the Warriors are for blowing a 3-1 lead, and about how they needed to add Kevin Durant just to beat the Cavs, if you’re a W’s fan and you’re not shit talking 24/7 then you suck as a fan and as a human being. I don’t care if you just found out you had a basketball team four years ago, you deserve this.
