Ten years ago, when the Mets came to town, Braves fans got ready to rumble. The rivalry was on: Bobby C. vs. Bobby V. Chipper vs. Piazza. Mr. Met vs. the Tomahawk Chop. Us vs. Them.
The 1999 NLCS, pitting Atlanta against New York, was our own unique taste of what MLB’s storied archrivals have known for over a century: Baseball, like love, is war. And we ALL think WE should win.
