An Historic Day In MLB

With last night's win over the Florida Marlins, the Mets have officially ended the era of the Atlanta Braves' dominance of the National League East Division.

The Braves are now OFFICIALLY eliminated from the pennant race.

Excuse me a moment...ahem...BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!...OK, back to this post.

Matthew Cerrone of MetsBlog.com posts an open letter to Braves Manager Bobby Cox:

"I have spent most every minute of the last 12 years swearing and screaming your name, taunting your relief pitchers, mocking your batters, and praying for your bus to stall on its way to the stadium – and now that your journey is over, I find myself grateful for all of the emotions you exposed me to. You see, it takes a lot to dislike a team as much as I’ve disliked you – and, in some ways, you’ve made me the rabid fan that I am.

So, thank you, Bobby – and here’s to hoping you become as bitter towards me and the Mets over the next 14 years as we’ve become towards you and the Braves.

Have a happy and uneventful October, and we’ll see you next April."

Mets fans, our long National (League) nightmare is officially over. Braves fans, you shove those styro-foam tomahawk chopper thingies right up your poop chutes (and let's hear that stupid chant while you do it).

*** Apologies to my relations in Norcross, GA who know I'm only teasing. ***

1 Enjoy it for this year, Gary. The Bravos are just taking a little breather. We will resume kicking your asses next year. The inter-family rivalry continues on October 15th, when the Falcons claim Vick-tory over that puny little football team of yours. Loser.
