Spurs fans mock Heat with “Seven Nation Army” chant

This season, the Miami Heat have been using the White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” as an anthem of sorts. It plays during their pre-game intros and blasts out over the PA system periodically during games at the American Airlines Arena. (Like most things associated with the franchise and its in-arena experience, it is corny and contrived.)

How did San Antonio celebrate its blowout victory over the Heat in Game 3 of the NBA Finals last night? By deliriously chanting the song throughout the final minute of action, of course. This was a level of fanbase-on-fanbase mockery rarely seen in American sports. Spontaneous, creative, cheeky, and brash. This is what sports fandom should be all about. Let’s give it up for the Spurs fans.

Enjoy:
