It’s been a 21 long years for Seattle Mariners fans.
The organization hasn’t won a postseason game since 2001, and since, it’s been years of nothing but being a bottom feeder in the AL West that’s been ran by the Houston Astros, Los Angeles Angels, and Texas Rangers for the past 21 years.
Needless to say, it’s been a long time coming for the Mariners and their fans.
Things began to finally swing in their favor this season at the hands of their young superstar Julio Rodriguez, stud pitcher Robbie Ray, and they were able to shock the American League by clinching a wild card spot.
And the best part?
They swept the Toronto Blue Jays, winning the first two games in the three game wild card series, including a come from behind 10-9 win on Saturday night to advance, where they were down as much as 8-1 in the game, and took the lead in the ninth inning.
You can only imagine the excitement in Seattle on Saturday night, and I’m surprised to see the whole city wasn’t burned to the ground by Sunday morning.
And if you needed an example of how ecstatic Seattle fans were on Saturday night, just take this moment that was caught on surveillance footage in a Seattle car dealership.
You can see three Mariners fans watching the game together, waiting to see if the team could finish it out and get the W.
Once it finally hit them that they were moving on in the playoffs, they start losing their damn minds, and another guy comes out of nowhere and they all begin to dance together.
You gotta love it.
