College football has perhaps the most passionate fans in all of sports. That was proven again this week when a father-son duo from Charleston, SC, created an exact Lego replica of Williams-Brice Stadium, home of the South Carolina Gamecocks.
According to the dad, who not surprisingly is a USC alum, the stadium required more than 5,000 Lego pieces and took several hours to build. Although, honestly, you’d think it would have taken much longer considering their accuracy and attention to detail. Even more impressive? David Robinson and his 15-year-old son created the entire Lego stadium from pictures (and memories), as there is obviously no Williams-Brice Stadium Lego set.
Robinson shared several photos his masterpiece on Twitter yesterday, and they quickly went viral. In less than 24 hours, the tweet has received over 700 retweets and 3,000 likes. Robinson said that he and his son used teamwork in order to complete this incredibly ambitious project, relying on each other to stay motivated and patient throughout the process.
Son and I finished our Lego project. Turned out well, I think. Over 5k pieces and many hours. My son wanted y’all to see it @MarcusLattimore @cmshaw14 @TheWorldof_AJ @clownejd pic.twitter.com/SOb6iETXDu

“Sometimes it was hard to get him to want to work on it when I did, but I am glad he agreed to [do the project], as he has more patience than I do,” Robinson told WYFFNews4 on Twitter. “Some of the construction was pretty nerve-wracking, [we were] hoping pieces would fit and not come apart. Without him, frustration might have taken over.”
