Embarrassing! Cardinals fans prematurely flee for the exits after giving up 9th inning lead
The Cardinals lost Game 1 of the NL Wild-Card Series 6-3 to the Phillies on Friday afternoon and in the process became the first team in MLB Postseason history to allow 6 runs when entering the 9th inning with a lead. It was a collapse of epic proportion and apparently simply too much for the Cardinals fan to handle.
With the Phillies scoring at-will in the top of the 9th inning and about to takes a commanding 6-2 lead the crowd at Busch Stadium could be seen running for the exits. How embarrassing for a Cardinals fanbase apparently known for being the “best and most knowledgable in baseball”.
Wow, that is a terrible, pathetic look for all Cardinals fans. This is prime evidence that just because your franchise has 11 World Series titles and consistently wins baseball games it doesn’t make your fanbase great. These St. Louis fans have become soft, fattened on the greasy loin of beating up on the rest of the sorry NL Central.
Rather than watch their boys attempt to stage a comeback in front of a national television audience, they would rather beat the traffic so they can get home to watch SharkTank or whatever the hell people from Missouri do on a Friday night in October.
In the extended video you can actually see a dad guiding what appears to be his adolescent son quickly to the exit. Can you imagine telling your 12-year-old son, “Sorry little Jimmy, we have leave this playoff game right now, so we can get home and watch Netflix in different rooms.”
It’s a 100% a Dad violation and something you would never see at Citizens Bank Park, even among the elite sitting in the Diamond Club.
It was meant to be, the Phillies hold a 1-0 with a chance win the series and advance to the NLDS tomorrow night!
