10 People Who Got It All Wrong With Their Cubs Tweets
The Chicago Cubs are officially one of the four best teams in the MLB in 2015. After beating the perennially dominant St. Louis Cardinals - who have accumulated four NL pennants and two World Series titles in the last 11 years - the Cubs have a legitimate shot at winning it all if they make it past either the New York Mets or the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS.
Everyone knows that the Cubs have been one of the most maligned franchises in professional American sports since their last World Series title in 1908, so it's hardly a surprise that most people are rooting for the lovable losers to finally end their historically lengthy relationship with heartbreak.
It's a rare occurrence when a team can inspire American sports fans across the country to all rally behind them, but the 2015 Cubs are that kind of group. Besides the fact that it takes a special kind of jerk to root against a team and a fan base that hasn't seen a championship in 107 years, they are also young, talented and just plain easy to like.
Plus, Miguel Montero is quite literally the happiest, most adorable athlete in America.
Of course just because most people are rightfully indulging in a little Cubs Fever doesn't mean that there aren't still some stragglers who can't quite seem to figure it out. You'd think that it would be easy to jump on Twitter and post a nice, normal, carefree Cubs tweet; considering everything we've just gone over. But as we all know well by now, the internet will never just let a good thing be.
These are the people who, despite their best efforts, just couldn't get their Twitter game on point for the Cubbies.
No. When your team is no longer or never was in the playoffs and you are merely cheering on a team that hasn't won since the dawn of the automobile, that's not really "bandwagon." That's just sports.
Ok so, props to Kyra for still being a cool enough human to root for the Cubs despite her fandom. But I'm dubious of anyone who is a fan of two baseball teams at the same time, especially the White Sox and Cardinals. How does that even happen? You've really got to pick one.
If all it takes to make you nauseous is a bunch of super happy tweets all over your timeline then I'd hate to see what late night Taco Bell does to you.
Yeah I mean, the Cubs fans definitely win. But that's because the Cubs won. They can both be winners.
Kindra, you kind wonderful soul. See how Cardinals-fan-Alyssa thinks she did you some big favor but giving your respect? That entitlement and arrogance was directly after getting their asses kicked! Imagine how they are when they actually win...That's why you don't compliment the Cardinals.
I can 100% promise you that real Cubs fans are absolutely loving all the nationwide support they are getting. Real sports fans don't get pissed when people cheer on the team they love.
Kris Bryant, one of the most successful young stars in baseball right now, is not going to notice and/or acknowledge your random ass tweet right now. I promise. There's an app for immediate gratification when you need attention; it's called Tinder.
What the hell! Don't set him up for failure, girl. Tell him to leave the hat in the car!
The struggle for the next generation is real... #PrayersForRubs
Those are two people that totally don't seem like they deserve your vitriol, sir. Call me crazy but I love myself some quality yet quirky acting and a lead singer with a solid baritone. That's just American.
