Most of us aren’t watching the Rays play in the World Series at the ballpark (although a select few are getting the chance). We’re catching all the action in living rooms, or maybe from one of the Tampa Bay area’s socially distanced viewing parties.

As the Rays head into Game 3 against the Dodgers on Friday, show your support for our hometown team on social media, where we’re following their World Series journey like on our Instagram.

You can brag about the team to your Twitter followers with a cheer card for your tweets. We have both home and away versions, even if they are playing every game in Arlington. You can also set one of these widescreen versions as your profile banner.

Facebook nerds, we have a similar card for you to share, too.

Don’t worry — we didn’t forget about Instagram. Just screenshot the fourth slide and make it your phone background.
