Serbia Goes Nuts After Second Place FIBA Finish

A second-place welcoming party in Serbia looks like a fun time. Well, as much fun as you can have in Serbia.

The Serbian Men’s Basketball Team recently finished in second place in the FIBA International Championships after they were pummeled by Team USA by 37 points. It’s only second place, so you wouldn’t expect much. Well, you’d be wrong.

Just look at that. It’s crazy there. Serbians are down with second place harder than I’ve seen anywhere down with second place. Definitely putting Serbia as a top party spot after this.

And it’s not even the Olympics. But Serbians don’t care. They’ll listen to their team rap while they jam-pack a city square like it’s nothing. Anything to take their mind off living in Serbia. Absolutely beautiful.

I was a little confused as to why Serbians were so hyped about second place, but then I remembered how Americans reacted after winning one game in a meaningless sport.
