Taylor University's Silent Night is Best Tradition Since Teddy Bear Toss
Every year, Taylor University, an evangelical Christian school in Indiana, holds a "Silent Night" and one of their December home basketball games before winter break.
The tradition is, fans pack the gym dressed in absurd Christmas-themed costumes and bright colors and sit in silence until the 10th point is scored by Taylor. When that 10th point is scored, though, the whole gym goes absolutely bananas.
Its a pretty sweet video, and as CBS Sports points out, its probably the one thing the school is known for...
"College kids losing their damn minds while dressed like they just broke out of the loony bin. It's the one-time-a-year celebration when the whole gym goes bonkers after total quiet from the crowd."
