CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Long-time Cubs fan John Cusack is still firmly in his team's corner, but he says that he now has a special place in his heart for the Tribe.

"Your next- got the manager & you fought through so many injuries - ur time is coming - and I'll be routing for you," he wrote on Twitter in response to a Tribe fan. (We can only assume he meant "rooting.")

Cusack said that he found Indians fans to be gracious and "fiercely devoted," making him a "Cleveland fan now- big time!"

"Amidst the celebration- I want to send respect to Cleveland- fans in the park were so respectful & classy to Cubs fans - wax blown away," he wrote. "Any other team but Cubs or Sox playing I'm routing for the Tribe."
