A tale of two fans: one leaping for joy, the other crying in despair

When Dansby Swanson hit a foul ball during the Braves' 11-4 loss to the Phillies on Monday night, this young fan managed to snag a souvenir. As if he has just scaled the highest of peaks, he leapt for joy.
But just as two teams enter the World Series and only one emerges victorious, his sister was unable to head home with her own souvenir. And that meant that the tears flowed: 

Though this may appear sad, anyone with a sibling knows that this is just one battle in 1,000. And the score will likely be evened when the sister receives the bigger slice of cake after dinner.
