Game 1 of the World Series Happened Last Night and Naturally Everyone Took to the Internet

Aside from Game 1 ending after a record-setting 14 innings, Fox News had some "technical difficulties" and there was a mysterious lady in a fur hat sitting behind home plate that stole everyone's attention.

Last night, a hacker found his or her way into the social media accounts of at least nine different Major League Baseball Teams, posting status updates and tweets that ranged from the crude to the (admittedly) hilarious. Curse you, illegal criminal of cyberspace, for making me laugh!

All teams have since deleted the offending posts. The Chicago Cubs even followed up with the tweet: "For the record, the #Cubs are big fans of Bill Murray. #NotHacked."

The hacker is still at large (watch out, NHL!)

Update: Deadspin reports that the MLB Facebook and Twitter accounts were not hacked, but were instead at the mercy of a rogue employee working for the "Advanced Media" arm of the MLB (which collectively manages all its teams' online presence).

The posts may have been an inside joke and not meant for public eyes, but Deadspin also notes that employees working for the social media arm of the MLB are grievously underpaid.

A-Rod Tweets Weird AF Photo of Himself, Internet Steps up to the Plate and Memes It Outta the Park

What's the douchenozzle A-Rod contemplating in this pic? His own profoundly overdeveloped vanity? Maybe he's trying to figure out where it all went wrong. Perhaps sometime when he teed himself up for a good 'ol fashioned meme-inspired whipping. The guy is almost too easy to make fun of at this point in the game, and the fact his self-awareness would seem to be at an all time low, promises the likely prospect we'll be seeing more of these gems pop up. One can hope.
