  • Browns safety Damarious Randall caught the attention of a lot of people when he promised to buy jerseys if the Cavs win the Finals

Damarious Randall has learned the hard way to never underestimate Cleveland sports fans.

By Wednesday afternoon, Randall's tweet had been retweeted 869,000 times.

Cavs' Game 6 victory over Celtics encouraging for Game 7
Throughout the season we saw superstars shoulder the load carry their team, deliver game winners and come through when it counted. Jayson Tatum threw down an impressive dunk on LeBron James in the Boston Celtics' series finale against the Cleveland Cavaliers .

Randall tweeted over the weekend that he was happy the Cavaliers beat the Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals so that he'd have a chance to attend games against Stephen Curry and the Warriors during the NBA Finals.

"I don't think any Cavs fans would sell me any tickets anymore", he said.

"I definitely didn't think the Cleveland fan base would go this insane about it", Randall said, per ESPN's Pat McManamon. "Obviously, it was a joke, but just to know how passionate this fan base is, I mean, it's just really encouraging". This deal is going to be hard to follow through on should the Cavaliers upset the Warriors - which is a long shot at the moment - and Randall's retweet number is climbing rapidly. Randall is a public figure with well over 130,000 followers on Twitter.

Randall did not specify what kind of jersey he would buy if the Cavaliers win, but assuming a standard Browns jersey that retails for $99.99, delivering on his promise would cost him well into eight figures. Here's a collection of a bunch of people sure to disappoint retweeters when the Cavs upset the Warriors and take home the championship, and also some tweets that just made us laugh.

"Obviously, this is Damarious' first year with us, and I am sure that there are a lot of lessons learned", Jackson said of his social-media policy. Nobody is losing anything by pressing the retweet button, and they have everything to gain if the Cavaliers do manage to come through and win the title.
