Cleveland Indians fans have been through the most heartbreak of any baseball fanbase in the country. Sure, the Chicago Cubs had not won a World Series in 108 years, but for most of that time, the Cubs have just been awful. The Indians, on the other hand, have been tantalizingly close to a World Series title repeatedly, only to smash their fans' hearts to pieces at the last minute. And now that even the Chicago Cubs have won a World Series, the Indians' fanbase is the undisputed king of sports misery.
Last night was the latest brutal emotional devastation that the Indians doled out to their long-suffering fans, as the Indians lost a heartbreaking Game 7 in a World Series that they once led three games to one. The Indians looked doomed for most of the entire game, until Indians outfielder Rajai Davis tied the game in the 8th inning with a two-run home run off the previously untouchable Cubs' closer Aroldis Chapman. After a lengthy rain delay that caused the game to stretch into the early Thursday morning hours, the Cubs finally put the game away in an insane 10th inning in which yet another Indians rally fell just one run short.
Indians fans do have this going for them, however: Whoever runs their Twitter account has a good sense of humor about the whole situation.
Just waking up ... Can someone tell us what time Game 8 starts? #RallyTogether https://t.co/Fv2ug6DwUa— Cleveland Indians (@Cleveland Indians) 1478183409.0
