    Wave Goodbye to These Giants Fans (GIF)

    This post was supposed to be about an Oakland A’s fan taunting a San Francisco Giants fan who was about to get ejected from last night’s A’s-Giants game.

    The last time we saw the midges in Cleveland take over an Indians game was back in 2007 during Game 2 of the American League Division Series, as they terrorized Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain just enough to cause him to allow the game-tying run in the eighth inning.
