Tweet of the Day: Braves-Red Sox edition

Sep 22, 2011, 9:40 AM EDT

Fredi Gonzalez, Derek Lowe

In the past 12 hours I have received approximately 50 tweets from people about just how bad the Braves suck.  Thankfully, most of them have been funny. I mean, sure, this skid has been miserable and there’s a great chance that the worst is yet to come (elimination!) but you can’t help but laugh or else you’ll just go nuts, and no event in sports is worth that.

Best tweet I’ve gotten on the matter so far came in a few minutes ago from J. Freedom du Lac:

Braves-Bosox would be the best NIT matchup in years, don’t you think?

Ouch.  But really, the only hope for Braves fans right now is that Boston woofs away the wild card too, because the anger, rage and misery coming from that fan base will make most everyone forget how badly the Braves choked too.

    This is one of the few times I glad the Braves don’t get the national attention that the Red Sox do.

      Your name is dangerously close to “Cal Naughton (Jr.)”, the race car driver from Talladega Nights. Have people told you this before? You should roll with it.

      The batters sure as hell don’t need it.

    Whiny babies with no hope for you own team. Never forget. Still leading.

      I sure hope you are right, but I think you might be suffering from a case of ‘blind faith’

        Giving up isn’t an option either. The tone of these posts and the braves fans’ comments are sad to me. Give your team some credit Braves fans! Would you rather be the Cards or the Braves right now? By definition of odds and math you must choose the latter. Go ahead, put a momentum argument below and I’ll piss all over it.

    It’s the Curse of…something to do with Boston before the Braves moved!

      The Curse of the Other Teams Babe Ruth Played For?

      Perhaps the worst-to-first, World Champion 1914 Boston Braves?
