Young Tennessee fan not pleased with being stuck on ‘the red team’ (VIDEO)

There's a certain beauty in this clip. Not because it makes a 4-year-old kid distressed, but because it shows the simplicity of being a fan.

When the kid, in his Tennessee jersey, is given the news he's on the "red team" for flag football, he can't understand. ("Ewwwww," he responds, in one of the many great moments in the clip).

The simple thought of having to wear a color other than orange is upsetting to the young kid.

"Well, they're not the Georgia Bulldogs," the mom says, understanding that might be the trick that cheers him up.

There are certain rules that come with being a football fan, even at age 4, and they include not being asked to wear red if you root for Tennessee. And I'm sure there's some kid in Georgia that would feel the same way about being told he's on the orange flag football team.
