I didn't know anyone cared.
Sorry, Mets fans... it's true. You really haven't cut the Braves as hard as you think you have.
Chuck Klosterman had a great essay in his book Chuck Klosterman IV: A Decade of Curious People and Dangerous Ideas called "Nemesis" (it can be found in its original magazine form here). It lays out the difference between a nemesis and an archenemy:
The Mets are my baseball nemesis. And I guess I am not supposed to reveal this, but I will anyway... the Marlins are my archenemy.
So tonight's loss is especially frustrating...because the Braves lost to THEM.
Oh, Wow. Who knew the Marlins were the archenemy of some of the Braves fans? I must admit it made me smile. The Marlins have finally arrived in the NL East when some of the fans of the Braves despise a Marlins success.
To continue the literary references, it is nice to be Alexander Pope and they Edmund Curll.
