Update at 11 p.m. Wednesday: The real-life "good job, good effort" kid is 9-year-old Jack Meyer of Coral Gables, Fla., who tells the South-Florida Sun-Sentinel that he is a die-hard Heat fan. "For those people who thought I was being sarcastic, you're wrong," Meyer said. "I was being enthusiastic. I was saying the truth. I would never hurt the Heat's feelings like that."The Miami Heat had at least one young fan who was impressed with their loss in Game 5, supporting LeBron & Co. with cries of "good job...good effort" as they walked off the court after losing 94-90 to Boston.
Remember folks, it's only a game.
Especially when you lose.
At least they tried.
"Good job, good effort" may have also been the last words Daniel Bard heard before being shipped down to Pawtucket.
After the game, "Good Effort" was trending on Twitter and the parody account @GoodJobKid had more than 1,000 followers within 45 minutes of his first tweet.
To me this game ended in a tie. Boston and Miami each scored 10,000 hustle points.— Good Job Kid (@goodjobkid) June 6, 2012
Sure we'll be hearing that one at the Garden early and often on Thursday night.
