The Missouri Tigers had a can of whoop ass opened on them on Saturday afternoon by the Florida Gators, losing 40-14 in a game that wasn’t ever particularly close.
That aside, there was an eye-popping moment during the game that grabbed the attention of some of the Mizzou faithful. That was the appearance of former ace pitcher and current Washington Nationals hurler Max Scherzer on one of the play cards that the Tigers had used during the game.
At first, there was the reaction.

And then, the man who was pictured spotted it himself and took to the Twittersphere to react on his own.

He’s already got the hang of it, doesn’t he?
