Braves Players Love Schadenfreude; Hate "The King of Queens"

New York Post blogger Brian Costello is on the road in Philadelphia covering the Phillies because Mets fans are just like a group of mini-Nixons: they need to know all the dirt about everyone on their enemies list. And yet the Mets season will most likely end like Nixon's presidency, in a hasty helicopter-aided departure forced by self-hatred.

After the Braves pounced on the Phillies 10-4 last night, Mr. Costello wandered into the visitors clubhouse to interview Chipper Jones about his big pinch-hit homer. What he encountered was a group of Braves players dressed in their post-game best gathered around a big-screen TV watching the end of the nationally televised Mets-Cubs tussle:

As Derrek Lee singled in the go-ahead run the Braves exploded, cheering on the Cubs. It happened again when Aramis Ramirez homered and a few members of the team and traveling party began singing "Meet the Mets." Others mocked the Kevin James video shown at Shea Stadium where he screams "Let's Go Mets."

Oh good, it's not just me. Antagonism of the Mets is universal. Hatred of Kevin James too. Nobody believed that your character in "The King of Queens" could pull such hot tail like that fake wife of yours, James. And that movie Hitch? I didn't even see it and I want my $8 back.

Chipper was wearing his real tree camo shirt.

@MA_TTT
DO YOU SHOP AT CABELAS TOO WE SHOULD GO SOMETIME I HAVE COUPONS

HAHA I PLAYED A FUNNY JOKE ON THAT COSTELLO GUY I KEPT SCREAMING "HAYYYY AAAAAABBOTT" AND THEN GAVE HIM A NONSEQUITER QUOTE. WE HAZE THE REPORTERS

I don't think Kevin James is terrible. He's not funny, but he's not cringe-inducing, like Mets Baseball. Oooohhhh, we're the Metropolitans!

Yeah but did you see I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry? There's some genius in that film.

and a lot of queer fireman

We should all start a band called Queer Firemen.

We''ll only play outside of Nationals games.

I like the "sadmets" photo because the poor schlub looks like he's airing out his pits. I'm sure they're potent with late summer flopsweat and garlic.

@CTC
I'm in.

The guy in the picture just got teabagged by Mr. Met.

The chicken flop expression is pretty hilarious, but the fact that he's holding his cellphone almost desperately, just in case one of the 848,233 women he gave his number to calls him is definitely awesome.

How cool will it be for the Mets to choke out of the playoffs again, for the second year in a row, right after they give Omar Minaya an absolutely unbelievable four year extension?

Seriously, I'm having trouble deciding which extension was worse. Omar Minaya's, Matt Millen's or Isiah Thomas'?
