The St. Louis Cardinals lost to the Boston Red Sox in Game 6, as the Red Sox claimed the 2013 World Series. It was a brilliant performance from the Red Sox all around, but the Cardinals fans didn’t seem to appreciate their teams efforts.

Boston clinched their first World Series at home since 1918, but it is the Cardinals fans who are making themselves look silly for comments unrelated to baseball.

Instead of placing blame and directing their anger at their own team, they decided to stoop very low and show why so many people need to learn that you must think before you tweet.

St. Louis had been unable to get much going on offense, so instead of blaming their team for the poor performance, the fans have directed insults at Red Sox pitchers Junichi Tazawa and closer  Koji Uehara. They also decided to throw racist remarks at David Ortiz, just because.

It is frightening, sad and really shows how much progress the nation still needs to make.

Oh, and then there was this.

 

Some people need to take a step back and remember that this is just a game before they continue to show how ignorant they are on social media.
