UVA dance-off winner wants you to know his sweater was orange

Wednesday February 11th, 2015

On Tuesday, a pair of dancing Virginia Cavaliers fans took the internet by storm with the intensity of their Jumbotron dance-off. Now the competition's winner is trying to set the record straight.

Chas Jordan told The Washington Post that his primary concern with the video going viral was not embarrassment, or even that many have argued his competitor, a Virginia nursing student named Cammy Leech, should have one, but that people think he is wearing red sweater to a game against Louisville.

"I’m most bummed about being labeled “Cardigan Guy.” By all accounts, the fashion industry is firm on the ¼ zip sweater being its own classification of outerwear and not a member of the Cardigan family. I also saw where I was referred to as “Big Red.” That one stung given we were playing Louisville. For the record, the ¼ zip sweater was U-Va. orange!"

Now you can ride the subway in Carmelo Anthony's lap

Both Leech and Jordan have told the paper they would be willing to stage a rematch, so keep your eyes peeled for more hilariously intense dancing from Cavaliers fans.
