Nevermind the government shutdown, nevermind the debt ceiling, nevermind Obamacare, we got bigger fish to fry. At least according to this Braves fan who wrote his Congressman asking to change the outcome of the Dodgers series. A series the Braves lost 3 games to 1.
His letter is compelling, hilarious and totally tongue-in-cheek. He deserves a round of applause. Here’s a brief excerpt.
This outrage cannot be allowed to stand. But the system has failed us. We tried to resolve this issue through traditional means. In last night’s game alone, we must have sent batters to the plate at least 40 times. But just because we couldn’t score enough runs, the Dodgers refuse to relinquish the title-and worse, they won’t even discuss it.
Just because the Dodgers had more hits, scored more runs, and won more games doesn’t make them right. You can help them see that. And if that means the country will be deprived of its national pastime – well, the Dodgers will have only themselves to blame.
