Nothing makes me happier than when the Miami Marlins beat the Atlanta Braves on their own turf like we did Wednesday night with a beautiful 8-4 gem tossed by Mark Buehrle. The, “Ted” as it is affectionately referred to around Atlanta faithful has never been kind to the Marlins. Well, unless of course you count its inaugural season in which the Marlins bested the Braves in six games to win the 1997 NLCS.
My intolerable hatred towards the Braves is well documented here so we will not go down that rabbit hole again. What I really want to do is re-post some of my favorite @ManOfTeal tweets from last nights game. So here you go.
I tweeted this right at the beginning of last night’s game.
Every year, and because I live in Atlanta, whenever the Marlins play the Braves the Fox Sports Marlins broadcast gets blacked out locally on my MLB ExtraInnings package from DirecTV so I am forced to listen to the Braves broadcast on Sport South. Here is my tweet from that:
I tend to take jabs at Braves players:
#Braves, your mongoloid first baseman can catch a ball….YAY!
and sometimes I have to defend my tweets:
I have to throw this one in there:
Then this happened:
Bonifacio steals #20 for the year. ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO HEEM!!!!
Then I try to incite a mass Marlin fan trolling of the Braves broadcasters:
@FSBraves Why are there no fans in the stadium? I thought this was a first place team.
Then I taunt the Braves announcers, because they are REALLY starting to irritate me:
And then I taunt the Braves fans, who are also getting on my nerves at this point:
Then the Braves announcer, apparently aware of my taunts, respond to it on the air, to which I reply:
OMG!!!! It’s like the
#Braves announcers are taunting me. Mentioned something about optimism. Touche’
Then I try to calm everybody down:
@atownbrown08 I think it’s time we both settle down and realize it’s just a game.
Then Giancarlo Stanton hits a homerun:
And I taunt the Braves fans again:
And then Livan Hernandez comes in to pitch for the Braves and I tweet:
Then in the 9th I put all of my faith in Heath Bell:
In Heath Bell we trust. Don’t screw this up.
And then, finally:
I hope you enjoyed reliving the game as much as I have.
Till next week kids.
