This Braves tweet aged poorly after Nats’ Opening Day walk-off originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

On Opening Day for the Nationals, the Atlanta Braves were the only ones having fun early on. The division rival spoiled Washington’s first game of the 2021 season by launching three solo home runs in the first two innings against Max Scherzer.

As teams often do, the Braves made sure to make note of that success on social media.

When these types of tweets go out, one of two things can happen. The first is that it serves as a nice burn toward your opponent in a win. But if the result isn’t a victory, it is a post that will come back to haunt you.

When Juan Soto delivered a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth to give the Nationals a win, the Braves learned that lesson the hard way. As always, people had the receipts.

It’s always good to have a laugh on Twitter, but it’s better to have the last laugh. The Nationals proved that on Tuesday.
