Jordan Brand's biggest weekend of the year just finished with a bang. Lots of sneakerheads walked away happy and others experienced a typical Sadderday.
No matter how many sneakers you couldn't cop today, no one took a bigger loss than Alex Boro on Twitter.

Reselling on social media with confirmation order as proof is extremely common. After getting up his tweet in hopes to score a flip, Alex quickly realized he made a huge mistake.
The anxious sneakerhead left his confirmation order visible.

Now here's my reaction:
I'm sure no one's Sadderday is worse than Alex's. Sorry buddy, but you played yourself. Hopefully you learn from this mistake as there will be more sneakers in the future you can try to resell.
Moral of this story: Don't ever play yourself.
