Taking a look at what Cleveland Indians fans have to be thankful for after an amazing 2016 season that ended just short of a World Series title.

There will be Cleveland Indians fans relaxing at home today after a day filled with food and family. There will be other Indians fans fighting the crowds for some deals on a day that strikes fear into the heart of introverts.

But no matter what the different types of fans are doing, the days surrounding Thanksgiving are a great time for everyone to take time to reflect on the year, and more specifically, the Indians’ season.

Yesterday was surely filled with reenactments of Rajai Davis’ game-tying home run in Game 7 of the World Series, or vivid descriptions of Trevor Bauer‘s bloody finger. Perhaps fans even recounted stories of Terry Francona‘s absurd eating habits.

The celebrations cannot be had without some remorse about the unfinished goal of winning a championship, but it is hard to be too upset as time continues to go on and next season continues to creep up on us.

There are countless reasons to be thankful in 2016, because of both the past season and what next season may hold in store. For now, let’s narrow down five specific reasons for Indians fans to feel thankful on this Black Friday.
