This sign in NYC comes along and takes it to a whole new level.
I don't care how old this is, I don't care how long it's been around, and I don't care if I'm the last person in the world who knows about it. This sign is new to me and it is absolutely hilarious.
I mean, Giants and Jets makes sense. The Knicks are back in a way big way so they obviously go above the Mets. And the Rangers and Yankees are no-brainers. But when you're getting dropped below the New York Islanders, that's when you know you're hovering dangerously above rock bottom as a franchise. The Islanders aren't even the ugly stepchild of New York sports teams. They're more like the aborted fetus of New York sports teams. They're a complete joke. And this sign ranks them above the Mets. Simply brilliant.
It's like the marketing person at Manhattan Mini Storage designed this sign with me in mind. I almost feel like I owe it to them to buy a storage cell and pay for it, even if I don't ever put anything in it, to thank them for this work of art.
Tip of the cap to you, Manhattan Mini Storage. Free AB4AR t-shirt coming your way if I ever get around to designing one.
