The Cleveland Indians FireWorks Guy Accidentally Set Off Fireworks After a Kansas City Royals Home Run
You had ONE job!
Honestly, I kind of feel bad for the guy. Who hasn't carelessly done something stupid at work. Who hasn't let their mind wander and done their job to less than the best of their abilities. The difference is that you could probably clean up your mistake a few minutes later when you realize you put the data in the wrong column. Your mistake didn't draw the attention of your entire work place. Your mistake didn't shoot hundreds of feet in the air and loudly explode for all to see. Your mistake wasn't broadcast on television, nor did it go viral on the internet. Yeah, it seems rather easy to sit there and hit a button whenever the Indians hit a homer, but you know what's not easy? Paying close attention throughout an entire, meaningless baseball game in mid-September.
You just know this guy was lounging back in his chair and heard that collective "ohhhhh" prior to a few visiting fans cheering. Probably didn't even think twice. Isn't that more of an indictment of the fans of Cleveland? Their longtime (I'm assuming) fireworks guy can't even tell the difference between the reaction of the fans when their team scores and when the opposing team scores. If Cleveland fans were doing THEIR JOB, this old guy, whose life is probably ruined now, wouldn't have to see the game to know when the Indians hit a home run. So let that sink in Indians fans, because the loudest you've been all year was when you were booing a senior citizen. A senior citizen that's dealing with more confusion than he signed up for because you guys don't know how to properly celebrate your team's success. Can't we just give the man a pass this time, instead of publicly shaming him in front of a half assed crowd. Cleveland fans have been giving the underwhelming players on the field a pass for years. Cleveland players have been giving their shitty fans in the stands a pass for years. Can't both parties do the same for a little old man that is probably the most loyal Indians fan in the whole building? Trust me, he already feels bad enough...
