Hilarious Cubs Twitter Account Loses Mind As Cole Hamels Throws No-Hitter

Cole Hamels made history Saturday at Wrigley Field when he became the first pitcher to no-hit the Chicago Cubs since Sandy Koufax threw a perfect game against the team in 1965.

The Cubs had recorded a hit in 7,920 consecutive games — or nearly 50 years — entering Saturday, the longest streak in Major League Baseball history.

One rabid Cubs fan devoted to bringing awareness to that streak joined Twitter in 2012 and has provided humorous insight over the past four seasons when Chicago found itself on the brink of being no-hit. Saturday’s events turned into a downright hysterical display of fandom for everyone not rooting for the Cubs.

The account’s owner seemed to know pretty early on that Cole Hamels was going to be special Saturday.

Things desperately got funnier from there.

Reasons to root for the Cubs and not pizza:

One last plea.

The End.

All good things must come to an end, including this legendary streak. As such, the Cubs thanked this anonymous tweeter for his dedication.

The Cubs have a bright future ahead of them, and Saturday’s performance was just a bump on their road to greatness. Let’s hope this tweeter recovers from his sadness, though.
