I don’t much go in for “WE’RE NUMBER ONE!” fandom. Even when the Braves won the World Series in 1995, the merch I bought was decidedly modest.

It will certainly suck again in the future. Enjoy your moment, but don’t overdo it.
Which is why I love this so much. It’s absolutely perfect:

If they have back-to-back good seasons they can print some up that say “my word, once again we, shockingly, do not suck.”
