Calling Mr. Met. Is this a rip off?

Dear Mr. Met,

Recently while on a trip to Atlanta, I had the opportunity to see the Mets play the Braves at Turner Field. While the park was nice (come on Shea is deservedly found in an area of town known as "Flushing"), the weather perfect, and the Mets won the game, there was something dastardly underfoot.

At first I couldn't put my finger on what it was. Perhaps it was the fact that we kept seeing ads for the upcoming 80's Mullet Head Night celebration or that while it was Latino Day at the ballpark there were no illegal alien protests (Walter Tejada was rumored to be at the park however). Finally I spotted it while walking on the concourse before the game:

Is it? Nah it couldn't be. But it does look like him...I mean you....wait no...why the blasphemy...Is it Mr. Met in a Braves Hat? (never mind the cheesy get up).

Say it ain't so! The Braves, the rednecks answer to a baseball team, have stolen our Mascot and dressed him up. Is this real or just a dream.

Please help shed some light on this nightmare situation.

Your Pal,

PS: Say hello to Mrs. Met for me. Oh and tell her "Last night was wonderful"
