Lewis pokes fun at himself with ‘Evil Kermit’ meme

Remember this Jourdan Lewis interception against Wisconsin?

It was an all-timer. With the Badgers trailing late in the fourth, quarterback Alex Hornibrook made a last-ditch effort to bring Wisconsin back into the game, but Lewis was having none of it. The Michigan DB’s one-handed interception was extremely impressive.

Self-deprecating humor is the best.
