This Week PR And DR Were Going AT IT – And I’m Not Just Talking About Baseball

Making fun of each other relentlessly is something Puerto Ricans and Dominicans do often, especially when we are up against each other in world events. As was the case this week with the World Baseball Classic.

Now that el fuego has died down, I wanted to take a moment to discuss the major burns that were happening this week before, during, and after the game, because people were going HAM on Twitter.

As a Puerto Rican, I got a good laugh in myself during the baseball game. ‘Cause sometimes, mi gente, we be wildin’.

What you can’t see in this photo is the three piece Puerto Rico flag suit he’s wearing.

But some folks just don’t get the rivalry.

I get it though, similar food, similar music, similar love for platanos.

Some people were coming hard for the Puerto Rican Adobo love.

What? You never brushed your teeth with Adobo?

Folks fortunate to have a bit of both in their lives were clearly conflicted.

Looks like he’s wishing he’d never been born.

This Twitter user was disoriented by the whole ordeal.

It’s like when your parents are fighting and you’re just like “Can’t we all just eat some tres leche and relax?”

Even the anthem got geeked on.

This updated anthem is modern, and everyone can sing along. We should just vote and make it official already.

Even with all the Puerto Rico shade, some took it in stride and kept it moving.

It’s hard to knock Puerto Rican pride when we represent for breakfast.

My fellow NYC Boricua wasn’t having it.

Word, yo. Puerto Ricans and Dominicans in the hood gotta look out for each other.

And then some folks spoke too soon.

In a thrilling game, Puerto Rico bested the Dominican Republic with a score of 3 to 1.

By the next morning, some were just tired of the comparisons and wanted peace and love.

Can’t we all just get along?

But for others, suspicion was on the rise.

I’d have been more nervous if it was a Morir Soñando.

Others were still licking their wounds from the loss and felt like throwing some more jabs.

To be fair, y’all know Dominican Spanish be fast AF sometimes.

By the following evening, everyone had said their piece, and the only sentiment that really matters was the one:

Mad corny, indeed, my friend. We are all poppin’.
