Breaking up is hard to do. Especially when the one doing the leaving is only one of 32 options you have. So it's understandable that this break-up can only end one way. Badly.

With the NFL owner's vote that allows the Rams to pack up operations and move to Los Angeles in 2016 the fans wasted no time in offering up some parting gifts for the team:

St. Louis Rams fans dropped off jerseys at Rams Park, no fans out here now

And others prefer to just burn bridges-er jerseys:

K, I think I'm over it now. #Rams

Don't be so butt-hurt St. Louis, it wasn't your team to begin with:

Remember when you took our team, St Louis? Now you want people to feel bad for you when we take them back? Fuck you. #rams #nfl #StLouis

I'll leave you with a snippet of one of the most famous departures in literature, with a few...modifications. Granted, when it was all said and done the whole thing ended in a not-so-romantic double suicide, but given the state of the Rams, and the gaping hole left in St. Louis, parallels can be drawn:
    'Tis almost morning, I would have thee gone—
    And yet no farther than a wan-ton's (ram),
    That lets it hop a little from his (city),
    Like a poor (fan) in his twisted gyves,
    And with a (majority vote) plucks it back again,
    So loving-jealous of (its) liberty.

    I would I were thy (Ram).

    Sweet, so would I,
    Yet I should kill thee with much (fire).
    Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow,
    That I shall say good night till it be (2016).
