These numbers come from our friends at Facebook, though that probably won’t stop Cardinal Nation and not-ready-for-prime-time pitchers from accusing a cancer survivor of cheating to win this battle, too.
The Boston Red Sox defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 8-1 at Fenway Park on Wednesday night to win the first game of the 2013 World Series. Boston also dominated the conversation on Facebook, generating over 5 million interactions from more than 2.6 million unique people on the social media platform.
The Red Sox out-buzzed the Cardinals 62% to 38% in terms of Facebook chatter, with men 25 to 34 doing most of the talking. Here are the Top 5 Demos Wednesday night:
- Men 25-34
- Men 35-44
- Women 25-34
- Women 35-44
- Men 18-24
The Red Sox’s home state of Massachusetts topped the list of states with the biggest buzz. Missouri, home to the Cardinals, was second on the list. The Top 10 states buzzing about Game 1 were:
- New York
- New Jersey
Like most Phillies fans, I was most delighted when Thomas Schnauz, writer and co-executive producer on Breaking Bad, tweeted this head-scratching photo of Bryan Cranston’s Walter White character wandering the halls in a Phillies jersey.
Schnauz explained that it was not a lost scene, but rather Cranston showing off his Phillies fever as a “fan.”

@briangoff Bryan was goofing around on set of #307 “One Minute” — he actually is a Phillies fan!— Thomas Schnauz (@TomSchnauz)
Episode 307 aired in May 2010, early in a season in which the Philadelphia Phillies were two-time defending National League Champions and not far removed from their 2008 World Series victory.
Fast forward to the present day MLB playoffs and alleged “phan” Cranston is seen sporting a Los Angeles Dodgers cap at Dodger Stadium in LA, pretending like he cares. Just like everyone in Tinseltown, it appears the beloved man known best for playing Freddie Munoz’s pop is nothing but a fake.
