The Tigers hit a walk-off grand slam vs. the A's, leading to the saddest two tweets in sports team history

New, comments

You know how the Price is Right yodeller falls off that cliff? The Oakland A's Twitter account did that.

Rajai Davis hit a walk-off grand slam for the Detroit Tigers against the A's, turning a 4-1 lead for Oakland into a 5-4 deficit. That in itself is an amazing and wonderful sports happening.

But a more amazing and wonderful sports happening is the way the A's Twitter account handled it:

Infinite, infinite failhorn. The way "you know what that means" cascades into "LOSS" is so perfect, and will resonate with any fan of a team with a penchant for painful losses. I don't even have any ill will towards the A's, but I'm filled with giddy schadenfreude. They were so, so damn sure about themselves.
