Mets pitcher Matt Harvey had a frustrating end to his 2013 season. While dominant in his time on the mound, an elbow injury resulting in Tommy John surgery put a stop to his year. To make up for that disappointment, Harvey is relaxing overseas during his recovery period, as anyone in his position would/should do.
Nothing better than blasting music, relaxing overlooking the most amazing blue water by yourself in Thailand. Happiness— Matt Harvey (@MattHarvey33) January 13, 2014
What an asshole, right? At least, that's what this random dude who thinks ocean water in Thailand is for Hall of Fame pitchers only believes.
@MattHarvey33 You have what? NINETEEN career wins? Why on Earth do you think you can act like you're in the Hall of Fame?— Nick DeBabylon (@NickDeBabylon) January 13, 2014
Normally I wouldn't pay any attention to some random Twitter troll, even of an athlete, but I'm mostly confused about this one. This dude realizes that everyone living in Thailand who sees the ocean has even fewer career wins than Matt Harvey, right? That going on vacation isn't inherently arrogant? Who am I kidding, the only surprising thing about this tweet is that the user actually has an avatar instead of a default egg.
Harvey handled it well enough on his own, at least.
@NickDeBabylon no I think I have 12. Just enjoying life. I didn't know that was a problem.— Matt Harvey (@MattHarvey33) January 13, 2014
I'm pretty sure the proper thing to do here was to just keep taking selfies and landscape shots of the "amazing" water and send all of them directly to this person who is very angry about it being Monday morning in Not Thailand, but I guess the more modest/innocent approach has its merits.
