Why Dura Ace vs. Campy is like the Mets vs. The Yankees

Becuase Dura Ace and the Mets RULE and the Yankees and Campy SUCK.

That's why.

You have your topic. Discuss.

The Mets are perpetual losers and the Yankees have the winning-est record in baseball....so you are correct Mets= DA Yankees=Campagnolo. DA= 7 Tour Victories (8 if Landis wins) Campagnolo virtually all the rest. For once we agree.

So where in you original analogy did you interject Texas baseball (a sport that I could care less about)? You compared the Mets to DA and the Yanks to Campy, I just agreed with you. Do you suffer from Early Onset Alzheimer's? Now run off drool on your Zipps and have mommie change your Depends.

SRAM would be the Florida Marlins. They're a new addition to baseball (only been around for 14 years) yet they've already won two world series. They became a big hit fast.

Well, then it works because no one roots for the Marlins either. (Of course that's due to TWO diff. owners gutting the team after winning a WS)

Yeah, but Rangers fans don't really care. Personally, I'm mildly amused when they win, and sort of ehhh when they lose.

I'm mildly amused that the Brewers are doing as well as they are. They usually eliminate themselves from the playoffs by late April.

Just when I try to elevate this to a civlized and mature level, you get personal on me.

What a tangled weenie web we weave.

Even if they strip Floyd of his title Campagnolo should get the bragging rights, no? I mean his gruppo didn't flunk the test-test.
