Chicks Dig the Long Ball

In honor of Tom Glavine becoming just the 23rd player in big league history to win 300 games, one of my favorite Nike commercials of all-time, especially in the current era of anti-steroids backlash.   Even though Glavine won 300 as a member of the Mets, for me he’ll always be a Brave, the guy on the mound in game six of the 1995 World Series.  I was lucky enough to have a friend with season tickets during the early 90s when the Braves’ run of division titles was just beginning, in no small part because of their incredible pitching staff, so it’s great to see him reach this incredible milestone.

Now I just need the Mets to start losing a few games so the Braves can catch them.

    I hope so. Perez had been killing the Braves this year. Now that we have Tex, I’m excited about the Braves’ chances.
