Cubs and Indians Fans on Twitter Are United on One Thing: They Think Joe Buck Has it in For Their Team


screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-11-59-02-am-1-e1475769727715-650x483Chicago Cubs fans and Cleveland Indians fans haven’t agreed on much in the Twittersphere, as their teams have battled in the Fall Classic for the past eight days. But there is one thing on which the verdict seems to be unanimous: Joe Buck hates their team.

The FOX play-by-play announcer is the son of legendary St. Louis Cardinals broadcaster Jack Buck. The Cardinals are, of course, the Cubs’ bitter rival. And on that basis, many Cubs fans think that Joe Buck is in the tank for the Indians.

But many Indians fans on social media disagree, and think Buck is pulling for the Cubs:

One Indians fan, poking fun at what they deem to be Buck’s love of Cubs slugger Kyle Schwarber, even created a Buck-Schwarber wedding registry.

No matter what happens in tonight’s historic Game 7, it’s quite likely one fan base will appreciate the commentary a little more than the other.
