On May 13, 2017, the Adelphi men's lacrosse team's viral sensation is no more. The team recently rose to internet fame for taking to the field while playing a portion of a Donald Trump speech. Three days ago, Barstool Sports posted video of the Garden City-based team coming out, American flag aloft, to a remix of the president's speech -- including his promise-turned-catchphrase, "We will make America great again." The clip immediately rocketed in popularity, and as of Saturday, had more than one million views on Instagram, and nearly 8,000 comments, some contentious. (Credit: Danielle Finkelstein)
