Mystery of the ‘TCU lady’ – solved!
Cook Children’s pediatrician goes viral
Audrey Rogers, M.D., may not be one for social media, but that hasn’t stopped her from becoming an overnight Internet sensation.
Dr. Rogers, a Cook Children’s pediatrician, was in the stands with her family on Saturday, watching TCU’s incredible triple overtime 47-41 victory against Oregon in the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio.
During the dramatic second-half comeback, Dr. Rogers knew right away that her celebration while the Frogs were on offense drew the attention of ESPN’s national broadcast because her phone began blowing up with text messages.
But then, she went viral.
The website sbnation.com posted a GIF of Dr. Rogers celebrating and her daughter Dianna, 20 and a TCU sophomore, calming her mom down. After all, you don’t cheer while your team’s offense is on the field, right?
“It’s hard for fans to be quiet when your team is making a 2nd half comeback, thanks in part, to Gary Patterson’s change of shirt,” is how the website described Dr. Rogers’ celebration. “This TCU lady is one of those fans, and her fellow TCU fans quickly reminded her that **whispers** you gotta stay quiet when your offense is on the field.”
So how does this "TCU lady" feel about going viral?
“A little freaked out, but it’s also pretty funny,” Dr. Rogers said. “Especially since I’m not on any of those things where people watch those videos like Facebook or Twitter. It kind of weirded me out a little because we are there at a football game and then the next thing you know it’s all over the Twitter world. But that’s the way it is now. I’m OK. It makes me laugh.”
