This poor, pathetic looking soul is Ben Vondo, who is gaining some notoriety on the Internet today after being caught looking forlorn during Monday night’s Pacers-Heat game. Vondo, affectionately known as Sad Spider-Man, was dressed as the web-slinging wall-crawler, albeit with a Pacers colored Spidey suit, for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals. When you go to all that trouble to cheer on your team—from Roy Hibbert’s “Area 55” at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse no less—and they get blown out at home 114-96, then of course you’re going to be a tad upset.
At least Vondo can revel in being an Internet celebrity…

Getting your 15 minutes of fame for being a Sad Spider-Man in a Pacers-themed Spidey suit is still better than whatever it is Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton are famous for.
