Indians lose Twitter bet with Rockies over Broncos-Browns game

There are only four MLB teams still alive in the postseason, so forgive their social media accounts for occasionally turning their thoughts to football. The Cleveland Indians proposed, then lost, a bet with the Colorado Rockies based on the Browns-Broncos tilt on Sunday in Cleveland.

That seems like a reasonable bet, even if both of those mascots are more like nightmare fuel than anything else.

The Broncos and Browns battled in an exciting back-and-forth game on Sunday, one that eventually went to overtime. Denver remained undefeated with a field goal and a 26-23 win. That meant the Rockies won the bet and the Indians had to change their Twitter avatar.

Two whole days as Dinger. That's rough.
