Nathan Marzion is a freshman at Marquette University, but he's also a huge Chicago Cubs fan. Earlier in the season, he tweeted out that if the Milwaukee Brewers finished higher than the Cubs that he would write a 1,000-word apology letter to everyone who favorited the tweet.
So, as Twitter goes, it caught a little bit of momentum and the tweet ended up getting over 7,300 likes. As we all know by now, the Brewers did indeed go on to win the NL Central, over the Cubs.

Even the Brewers themselves picked up on this and there's been somewhat of a following on it all season. So, when the season was finally over, and the Brewers had won, they didn't let Nathan forget his promise. The Brewers along with the another 7,300 people.
Low and behold, Nathan made good on his promise and wrote the 1,000-word apology letter, explaining why he's a Cubs fan and why he made the proclamation.
Twitter is filled with bold statements, empty promises and complete idiots with the hottest takes and the least knowledge, but not Nathan.
He made a statement, stood by it the entire time and followed through on his promise, despite it not yielding the outcome he thought or desired it would. That alone is probably more than 99 percent of what Twitter's keyboard warriors can say behind the keyboard or in real life.
