The club lost, and the fans found a way to somehow raise their spirits.
When the #WrigleyRallyRat gets the biggest cheer of the night? I think it was rigged by the piRATes! It’s been a rough game! @barstoolsports @BarstoolBigCat @Deadspin @SarahSpain pic.twitter.com/H8PrgnLqtI

The Chicago photographer Will Bayington photographed how the fans of the Chicago Cubs team support the rat instead of their club during a match with the Pittsburgh Payest. Rodent tried to jump from the grid, which encloses the field, on the wall next to the fans.
From the first time the rat did not work, after which the fans were very upset. But then they got even stronger and started shouting: “You can do it.”
When the rat jumped all the same, the fans rejoiced as if their team had won. But no, I lost.
