I know I'm in a small minority here, but for me, beating the Braves is about 2 times more fun that beating the Mets.

All things being equal, I still get more joy from beating the Braves than any other team, though the wins over the Mets in September in 2008 and 2007 were of course especially sweet. But that had at least as much to do with the fact that we were overtaking a team ahead of in the standings as the fact that it was the Mets.

Last series, over on TGP, a Braves fan tried to justify that the Tomahawk Chop wasn't offensively racist because Deion Sanders brought it over from Florida State. Somehow, in that person's mind, something can't be "racist" if it somehow gets the stamp of approval from some minority, even if he's not the same ethnicity as the potential offendee. I was speechless.

Due to locale, I'm guessing there's more Braves fans than Mets fans in Arkansas for you to tease.

Traditionally, folks here are Cardinals fans. There are Ranger fans and some Astros fans as well. Braves would come next.

My Braves hatred goes way back before I moved here though.
