Leaving a sporting event early is almost never a good idea, but it’s really not a good idea when it’s a championship event.
Rex Ryan, a Cubs fan, learned that the hard way this week. Ryan took a bus with friends to Game 7 of the World Series between the Cubs and the Indians. Apparently, Ryan left during the rain delay before the 10th inning, and missed the Cubs winning their first World Series in 108 years.
Rex Ryan says he and about a dozen friends left during rain delay of Game 7 of World Series. "I hate to admit it," he says. He's a Cubs fan.— Mike Rodak (@mikerodak) November 4, 2016
This is a mistake of epic proportions. Not only did Ryan miss his team winning a title that seemed improbable for decades, but arguably the greatest World Series game ever.
Ryan probably won’t make a mistake as bad as this one on the football field this year. It’s that bad.
Remember folks, always stay at the game.
