World Series “Glitch” Brings Out the Best on Twitter

We just witnessed some World Series downtime, much to the chagrin of fans in Kansas City and New York. Luckily for rest of us, it provided a reason for the Twitter-sphere to join together in its hatred for Joe Buck, concern for Matt Harvey, and agreement that someone screwed up. Regardless of the reason (word is power to the production truck went out) here’s how things looked on Social Delta:

Oh, and the game started with an inside the park home run for the Royals. Game 1 and things are creeping on epic. We’ll see if the rest of the games live up to this, but for the sake of baseball fans, we’ll take whatever attention we can get.
