Fate Fell Short This Time: Twitter Swore Blink-182 Was At The BJC, Fake News
If you’ve been inside the BJC recently, chances are you know someone who knows someone who was absolutely positive Blink-182 was making an appearance at THON 2017.
At first this pipe dream seemed attainable — even likely — for some reason. DNCE’s impromptu visit and general Twitter fodder could be to blame. Other sources of the rumors, AKA various committee members, seemed kinda legit. I also convinced myself the stage was set up differently (so of course that meant Blink was coming, right?)
The hours are dwindling down, though, and it’s becoming clear — fate fell short this time. It’s not the summer, but my smile fades every time I realize Blink 182 just probably isn’t coming to THON. Think about it.
Maybe I’m gullible for even entertaining the thought in the first place, maybe I’m just a blind optimist — but I’m not the only one:
BLINK 182 IS AT THON OMFG

Come on, Megan. At least abide by the number one rule of the internet: Pics or it didn’t happen.

My first mistake was reading into a Collegian writer’s tweet.
Blink-182 is rumored to love performing at THON too… idk if I can handle all of these surprises

I don’t know, Jenny. It seems a little bold for Blink 182 to love playing at THON considering it has never played at THON.
Let it be known that I am even more salty I am going to miss blink-182 make an appearance at THON than I was when I missed DNCE

Can’t miss it if it doesn’t happen…
If Blink 182 shows up to THON while I’m not there i don’t know what I’m going to do with my life from this point forward.

Guess you can just get on with it then…
Blink-182 is supposedly performing at THON and too many ppl have asked me who that is

How is this a thing? Rachel’s friends should be ashamed. We never even deserved Blink-182.

FAKE NEWS! I’m tired of all the crooked tweeters in the BJC. Sad!
Where are you, Blink? And I’m so sorry (about @rachel_elyssa’s friends).
