The Curse Of Ted Cruz

Ted Cruz tweeted with Texas Tech in the National Championship game, up by 1 with just 35 seconds left. They lost in OT, of course.

35 seconds. ONE point LEAD. GO RED RAIDERS!!! #1 Defense.

Texas senator Ted Cruz was in attendance at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on Monday night as Texas Tech faced Virginia in the national championship game. Cruz sent out a tweet with under a minute to play in regulation, and the matchup didn't go well for the Red Raiders from there.

Cruz tweeted a selfie as Texas Tech led 66-65 with 35 seconds remaining. But the Red Raiders couldn't hold its lead, giving up a three from Virginia guard De'Andre Hunter to tie the game with 12 seconds left. Virginia then outscored Texas Tech 17-9 in overtime en route to an 85-77 victory.

The Internet was quick to respond.

I’m not one to gloat, but … man oh man, Ted Cruz, you dumb jinxing MF’er.
