For a sports fan, there is no better way to show their support for a team or player than through a jersey.

Getting your hands on one can be expensive these days, though, and authentic Cool Base jerseys like those worn on-field in the MLB can cost close to $270.

Of course, fans have different mediums nowadays to show their support through various forms of social media. One Chicago Cubs fan tried to use Twitter to his advantage to show his support.

The Cubs have been playing pretty well in the post season. They knocked off the MLB-best Cardinals in the NLDS and are now playing the Mets in the NLCS.

Even though they are trailing New York 0-3, rookie Kyle Schwarber's offensive barrage hasn't stopped. The Cubs have had a recent influx of young talent and as a result Cubs jerseys are all over Chicago.

Whether it be of the player that led all of baseball in jersey sales, Kris Bryant, Jorge Soler, or even Kyle Schwarber.

That one fan is such a big Schwarber fan that he decided to tweet the Cubs asking if he could have a "Kyle Shwarber" jersey.

The fan clearly felt he was entitled to a jersey, but the Cubs responded asking him to DM them.

The fan informed them that he could not DM to which the team responded:

"Oh. That's unfortunate."

A clearly sarcastic answer to a fan trying to exploit the Cubs for the jersey. It should be noted that the same fan made a similar attempt the day before only to get an answer of "no" from the team multiple times. 

A Lesson to be Learned

To sports fans everywhere.

To avoid being on the wrong side of internet fame, go out and a buy jersey instead of trying to get one from the team for free.

If you do try to get a freebie, at least spell the player's name right.
