The Chicago and L.A. public transit systems are getting into it on Twitter before the NLCS

The Dodgers eked out a 4-3 win over the Nationals in NLDS Game 5 on Thursday night, meaning they headed to Chicago to take on the Cubs in the NLCS starting Saturday at 8 p.m. ET on FS1. Armed with proven closer Clayton Kershaw and a veritable army of former Phillies, L.A.'s feeling pretty good about its chances.

The Los Angeles Metro, on the other hand, is feeling really good. So much so that they decided to move the fight to the public-transit theater:

Alas, Metro responded with the ultimate "Break In Case of Twitter Fight" emergency plan:

Don't worry, Chicago. This team may very well be immune to the power of the goat.
