Next Sunday’s Super Bowl in New Orleans between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers is a dream come true for many fans of both teams vying for the Vince Lombardi trophy. However, the dream just got better for one very special Ravens fan named Keith Letourneau.
On Friday of last week, the Baltimore superfan was awarded a pair of tickets to the game along with an all-expenses paid trip to New Orleans by Barclay’s. The bank was moved by Mr. Letourneau’s over-the-top reaction to his team’s double-overtime victory against the Denver Broncos on January 12th.
Letourneau’s fame was initially due to three embarrassing videos posted of his screaming reactions to the heart-stopping victory his team managed to eek out over Denver in the AFC divisional playoffs. You can blame (or credit) Keith’s wife Rachel for capturing these magic moments.
Clip number one showed Letourneau’s reaction to the Ravens’ tying the score 28-28.
The screaming fit in this second clip was triggered by Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones making a spectacular catch with less than a minute to play.
And the third clip shows us Keith after Baltimore intercepted a Peyton Manning pass in overtime, setting up the winning field goal for the Ravens.
Letourneau’s trifecta of videos displaying his screaming and thrashing about on the floor generated more than 500,000 hits on YouTube and captured the attention of someone at Barclay’s. CBS Baltimore was on the scene to cover Keith’s reaction to the good news.
