When the cold stove can’t keep you warm, at least NL Central rivals are there to take humorous shots at each other for our delight and amusement.
To set things up, the Brewers recently announced a Wisconsin-only pre-sale for tickets to Cubs games, with a specific reference to Cubs fans:
It’s not that we dislike Cubs fans, per se. We just really prefer Brewers fans.

The Cubs had a perfect response:
Reminder that EVERYBODY can buy #Cubs tickets starting Feb. 23 …
Even if you live in Wisconsin! ❤️🐻 pic.twitter.com/apmiG9tJAD

Today, the Brewers kept things going with a reference to ‘Go Cubs Go’ and a highlight of one of their nine wins (in 19 tries) against the Cubs in 2017:

I still think you’ll wind up selling to plenty of Cubs fans, but hey, you do you.
#AtCubs, never one to be outdone, responded with a perfectly IN THE FACE subtweet:
🎶 Come on now, follow my lead

Bonus fun from all of this, a notorious Twitter photoshopper played on the pre-sale with notorious Brewers fan Kato Kaelin:

This is 2018. One of the star witnesses in the O.J. Simpson murder trial is chatting with us on Twitter about a photoshop of a Brewers shot at the Cubs. And people say social media is no good.
