The Braves host the Nationals for a four-game series next week. Their advertising for it — on the web and on billboards — is rather amusing:

Sarah Kogod of the Washington Post dismisses it sarcastically as “super original.” I think her mistake is thinking that the Braves were in any way trying to be original here. Rather, they’re mocking the Nats. Which is something which seems totally fair given that the original slogan was (a) born of an inferiority complex to begin with; and (b) Nats players aren’t gonna respect the Braves, apparently, until they’ve lost a couple more series to them.
As for me: I’ll be going up to Detroit tomorrow to take in the Braves-Tigers game. I was gonna just cheer for my team, but now I’m gonna show my Gattitude, I think. It’ll likely annoy people.
