It looks like Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is Texas Tech’s bad luck charm.
Cruz tweeted a selfie yesterday from the NCAA championship game at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis and observed that Texas Tech held a 1-point lead with 35 seconds left in regulation.
“35 Seconds. ONE Point LEAD. GO RED RAIDERS!!! #1 Defense,” he wrote.
But Cruz spoke too soon, and Texas Tech fans claimed he jinxed the game after the team was defeated in an 85-77 overtime victory by Virginia.
Cruz didn’t address the roasting, but he did praise Texas Tech in a tweet afterward.
“A heartbreaking loss, but an AMAZING game,” he wrote.
