Thursday, Twitter announced that it was going to discontinue Vine, the video-sharing app it purchased four years ago for $30 million. The writing was on the wall for Vine as many users had already moved on to Snapchat, Instagram, and other social media tools. Still, we’ll remember it and the way it briefly became the ideal way to share quick-hit videos, especially good for sports highlights and jokes.

But as I perused it’s collection of Syracuse-related vines, I realized we’ll be losing plenty of gems. If nothing else, we’re losing the internet’s leading resource for Jim Boeheim nose-picking videos.

Here’s what I’ll remember. Add your own in the comments...
