If you were watching the fourth quarter and overtimes of the San Antonio Spurs-Golden State Warriors playoff game on Monday night, you undoubtedly heard “Screaming Spurs Fan Lady” yelling every time the Spurs did something good on the court.
This woman’s shrieks were so persistent and so annoying, she stole the focus of the game away from the players on the floor.
See, the problem is that the Spurs were getting crushed by the Warriors in the third quarter and fourth. It wasn’t until late in the game when San Antonio made an 18-2 run in the final four minutes of regulation that she became painfully noticeable. But once the Spurs started to come back, she was unbearable.
In the video up top, you can hear her truly losing her mind when Danny Green made a 3-pointer to tie the game at 106 and send it to overtime.
According to Deadspin’s Tim Burke, the annoying fan could not be heard from the crowd mic. He surmised that the woman was sitting right behind TNT’s announcers, which would make her one of these people:
The hatred for Screaming Spurs Fan Lady was strong. Take a look at all these tweets:

Incredible game. I’m FedExing the Mute Button to San Antonio for Game 2 for The Shrieking Lady.

Only benefit of getting less than 5 hours of sleep tonight? Less time to have nightmares about Screaming Lady Spurs Fan.
