We can just hear Darius Rucker singing to his team: “I only wanna be with you.”
Rucker, lead singer of ‘90s hitmakers Hootie and the Blowfish, had himself a moment in New York City’s Madison Square Garden after watching the South Carolina Gamecocks defeat the Florida Gators on Sunday, advancing to their first Final Four in the NCAA Tournament.
Watch the emotional reaction from the former South Carolina student and Charleston native below:
WISTV, a local TV outlet, pointed out that Rucker is so devoted, he hasn’t let work get in his way of March Madness, either. As he performed a concert in Charleston on Friday, the singer stole looks at onstage monitors showing South Carolina upsetting Baylor.
Even Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bill Murray ― other celebrity fans whose teams eventually bowed out ― didn’t show that level of fanaticism.
