Kids at home, if someone dares you to snort a line of mustard, don't do it.
The below video shows some Phillies fans attending an Atlanta Braves game and a dare for one of them to snort a line of mustard.
As you may figure, snorting mustard does hurt:

Atlanta Braves outfielder Michael Bourn knows very well that when you gotta go, you really gotta go. Bourn didn’t let the fact that he was playing in the middle of a MLB game get in the way of his need to use the restroom on Thursday during their 10-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Check out the video of Michael causing a game delay for nature’s calling.
Jair Jurrjens liked the way he pitched in his last start.
No, believe him. He really did.
Forget the fact that he gave up seven hits and five runs in five-plus innings for the Braves against Milwaukee on Friday, Jurrjens was pleased.
In the second, he gave up consecutive home runs to George Kottaras and former teammate Alex Gonzalez.
And then in the sixth, pitching with an 8...

I thought Moylo & Meds little bump was going to be the best part of this commercial until Rossy started doing the running man. :D (Huddy talking to himself was pretty great too. Who are we kidding, this is awesome.)
After getting off to their worst start in 24 years, it appeared that last season's late collapse was still fresh in the minds of the Atlanta Braves.
That doesn't seem to be the case anymore.

Following a troublesome 0-4 start to kick off the 2012 schedule, the Braves’ hitting (or lack thereof) led to quite a bit of concern in Atlanta.
Now, just a few weeks later, it’s safe to say that those worries have faded away.
Atlanta has gone 7-1 since dropping its first four decisions of 2012, and in the process has been able to manufacture the offense necessary...
This afternoon the Mets (7-5) fell to the Atlanta Braves (7-5) by the final score of 14-6.
After looking un-hittable in the first inning, R.A. Dickey got smacked around by the Braves’ hitters giving up three 2-run homers, and 8 runs in 4 1/3 innings of work.
There’s really nothing else to say about today’s game other than the Braves hit the snot out of the ball and the Mets...

Dan Uggla hit his first homerun of the season in Wednesday's series finale.
Entering the series with the New York Mets, the Braves were riding the momentum of a 5-game winning streak and a sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers. They were quickly dejected by yet another loss to the Mets on Monday, their 4th straight dropped to the Metropolitans this season. Unlike the trip...
