In the bottom of the seventh inning of last night’s Giants-Diamondbacks game, a Giants fan sitting near the left-field line accidentally reached out and grabbed a fair ball. This happens all the time at baseball games, but things took a turn for the tragic in this instance.

Browns fans are in that rare sweet spot on the venn diagram of sports-fan sadness, where we’re still able to laugh at their misery caused by last night’s kick-six loss to Baltimore, even as we feel really, genuinely sorry for them.
These Browns fans thought they were going to capture a triumphant victory over the hated Baltimore Ravens, with the worst case scenario being the game going into overtime. Instead they managed to document a beautiful mosaic of Browns fan sadness, resignation, anger, and fury. Poor Cleveland.

Will from Queens was feeling a little emotional yesterday morning, and who can blame him? His Mets are in the playoffs for the first time since 2006, he just watched Ruben Tejada get his leg broken on a dirty play, and Matt Harvey?

Take comfort in your friends.
Aww, there there little Louis. When we imagined Manchester United fans crying over Robin van Persie’s impending move to Turkey, we thought they’d be tears of joy. Chin up, kid. The Memphis Depay era should be a good one.
