The saddest Teletubby in the world is a Wisconsin fan

The saddest Teletubby in the world is a Wisconsin fan, and now he (or she? or it?) is rivaling March Madness icon 'Sad Piccolo Girl' for the ultimate NCAA tournament-related fan bummer.

But then, things turned south for the Badgers. Wisconsin lost. And then one of the Teletubby people looked like this.
