They say misery loves company. So to help out the Atlanta Braves who are likely reeling after losing Game 7 to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday night, the Cleveland Indians have set up a little group therapy on Twitter.
The 3-1 support group meets on Tuesdays, Braves fans.

Apparently four years isn’t long enough to heal the wounds caused by blowing a huge lead to one of the most cursed teams in baseball history. But at least Clevelanders got to enjoy life on the other side of the coin when the Cavaliers rallied to take down the Warriors who got out to a 3-1 lead in the 2016 NBA Finals.
Other fans who have dealt with the pain of such a crushing collapse gathered to commiserate, and welcome the Braves fans into the fold.
I still remain traumatized that I had to spend the night of Gm7 stuck at Chi’s O’Hare airport while Cubs fans were celebrating.
I had to try to sleep on a row of chairs while the monitors showed interviews of Cubs fans all night.
Makes for a good story, but I was miserable.

Meanwhile one Atlanta fan made the fantastic observation that their city has dealt with plenty of disappointment recently.
On behalf on ATL, please. We were born in the darkness (28-3). You merely adopted it. pic.twitter.com/VMi7BCX8nD

Maybe they should be the ones leading the group?
