The REAL Subway Series
Chances are, the Yankees and Mets aren't going to meet in the World Series. OK, sure. It's possible. IF the Yankees win the one-game wild-card play-in; IF the Mets get more than one game a series out of physically limited ace Matt Harvey; IF the Yankees don't get stomped by the much, MUCH better teams in the AL bracket ... OK. Maybe the traditional Subway Series is still a mathematical possibility. (Not happening.) Regardless, the REAL Subway Series took place today on Twitter, and New York beat the living hell out of L.A. In case you missed it, here's the ugliest case of mass transit system-on-mass transit system verbal violence in recent memory, tweet by tweet: From L.A., with love:
From NYC, only mildly annoyed but bringing it strong:
Hey @MTA please tidy up the 7 train, @Dodgers blue is coming to town. #lolmets @Mets— Metro (@metrolosangeles) September 30, 2015
L.A. tried. Really, it did:
Don’t worry, @MetroLosAngeles – we sweep our subway just like the @Mets will sweep the @Dodgers— MTA (@MTA) September 30, 2015
But this is New York. No contest.
A friendly wager, @MTA? Perhaps your famous New York pizza. #Dodgers #LolMets pic.twitter.com/5g1vpMBuZF— Metro (@metrolosangeles) September 30, 2015
They're still going at it, looks like, and maybe some pizza or something is on the line. Anyway. The Long Island Railroad clearly has a dog in this fight. Hence ...
.@metrolosangeles Happy to wager on who wins the series. Care to wager on who gets more fans to the ballpark?— MTA (@MTA) September 30, 2015
