If you hadn't heard, Spencer Lee is NCAA national champion at 125 pounds

The Hawkeyes' phenom ran roughshod over former national and major-conference champions alike en route to becoming Iowa's first true-freshman NCAA title-holder first since 1993. 

Iowa's Spencer Lee celebrates after winning the 125 pound national championship over Rutgers' Nick Suriano at the NCAA Wrestling Championships at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio on Saturday, March 17, 2018.

And of course, the internet couldn't get enough.

Adding a dog to your Spencer Lee tweet is how you internet correctly, folks.

Is this good? It sounds good.
