Hey Braves fans…

Wait until next year…

Rinse and repeat!


Yer pal,

I’'m happy for you, Satan. My team didn’t go anywhere this year, but I’m glad you kicked the Tribe’s ass.

I hate that fucking team.

This space for rent.


Or as I like to refer to them, the Not-The-Braves. No matter what uniform they’re wearing, they’re my favorite team.

Satan, how could you have forgotten Chad Curtis blowing off Jim Grey? That was my favorite moment of the night, and it serves that self-righteous twit right. I hope he gets blown off during the inevitable Game 4 trophy presentation, too.

BTW, when the Yanks win it, it will be their 25th World Series trophy. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, Braves fans!

An Indians fan, a Yankees fan, and Pamela Anderson are sitting together in a train traveling through Switzerland when the train enters a tunnel and the car goes completely dark. There’s a kissing noise, and then the sound of a really loud slap.

When the train comes out of the tunnel, Pamela Anderson and the Indians fan are sitting as if nothing happened, and the Yankee fan is holding his slapped face.

The Yankee fan is thinking, “That Indians fan must have kissed Pamela and she swung at him and missed, slapping me instead.” Pamela is thinking, “That Yankee fan must have tried to kiss me, accidentally kissed the Indians fan, and got slapped for it.”

And the Indians fan is thinking, “This is great. The next time the train goes through a tunnel, I’ll make another kissing noise and slap that fucking Yankee fan again.”

I’m not really a baseball fan, football and basketball are my bag, but I hate the Braves. Why? Because when the Braves aren’t playing well, you can’t pay people to go watch them. And they stole the chop from FSU.

I remember some 10 years ago driving through Atlanta past the stadium one evening when the Dodgers were in town, deciding to pull off and see if we could get in. Not only did we get in, we sat right behind the third base dugout.

And knowing that the Turner empire would profit from me being a Braves fan is enough to turn anyone’s stomach.

Next year, just to be an asshole, I’m gonna try to get to every Braves spring training game in a Yankee cap and jersey.


Oh, Jesus, my Physics teacher’s gonna be an asshole today. He hates the Yankees with a passion…

That said, I hope the Braves get swept. ANy team that boasts Jane Fonda as a fan…


What did Curtis say to Jim Grey? I saw him walk away after about 3 seconds but I couldn’t hear what he said.

According to the Daily News:

Gray: “Tell us about that pitch”

Curtis: “I can’t do it. As a team, we kind of decided, because of what happened to Pete, we’re not going to talk out here on the field. I do want to say that was for you, Grandma.”

Now I have to go get married and have a son, just so I can call him Chad.

You are reading my very first post!

Aren’t you lucky.

Haven’t heard that ‘Team of the Decade’ debate recently. Two more appropriate questions maybe to kick around:
1- The Buffalo Bills of baseball: Atlanta or Cleveland (or maybe Texas or Houston)?
2- Atlanta has had THE dominant pitching staff for some time, with just one title to show for it. Is it time to rethink that ‘pitching and defense wins championships’ adage? (Is this strictly a long-ball era? Did the BoSox really score 23 runs in a post-season game?)

As a much suffering <gulp> Oriole fan I’ll just say thank god for football.


Thanks, Manhattan. I’m a die-hard Red Sox fan so it’s impossible for me to “like” the Yankees, but I thought it was cool they were pissed at Jim Grey in Atlanta during the Pete Rose incident and I think Curtis was cool for basically telling Grey to shove it.

I have been a Yanks fan since birth. As for the team of the decade, I think we are forgetting the first half of the decade. I remember some pretty dark years for the Yankees. As for the “pitching and defense” addage, I would have to say that so far, the Bombers’ pitching and D has been holding up much better than the Braves’ (Pettite notwithstanding). The same was true last year against the Padres. And pitching beat hitting in 97 when the Marlins (I still can’t believe it) beat the power team of the 90’s, the Indians. Now, you may be able to make a case that the Braves’ pitching and D was better than the Yanks’ in 96, but you would get an argument out of me. And it certainly won out in 95 (the Braves’ lone championship).
On a different note, I was ecstatic when I saw what Curtis said to Grey. Kudos to Chad, and kudos to the Yanks for being so gosh-darn cool.
I hate John Rocker.

The IQ of a group is equal to the IQ of the dumbest member divided by the number of people in the group.

Man-o-man! Always love watching the Braves get swept. Looks like that empty hole in Ted Turner’s trophy case is going to have to wait till next millenium. Maybe longer…

Swept. I wonder if anyone in Atlanta will root for them next year.


MrKnowItAll: Amen, Go Not-The-Braves!!! At Not-Ted-Turner Stadium!
Bubba: You’re mad because ATL stole the chop? I think the best part of Game 4 was when the NYY fans were doing a mock Tomahawk chop/chant.
And Steinbrenner said he idolized Ted Turner. I dunno about you guys, but I am verrrry disturbed by that.
All hail Dusty!
To Bobby Cox: Pthbbt!

Okay - So where are those Braves fans who were predicting victory?

Come out and take your beatings like a man!!
