First it was a swarm of insects, now seagulls...maybe they'll have it rain down sulfur...it's one of the most exhausting activity one can emerge in...outside of soccer.

It was a 24 second celebration then everyone started walking off the field like normal. It's not like they made a dogpile on the mound and carried Choo off the field. Jesus, why does everyone have to come down so hard on pro sports players for having a little fun? Merriment and Laughing Banned

It would have been awesome if they did though.

After a win I have no problem with a little celebration(K-Rod/Paps or game winning hit). I do think celebrating when you team is losing is dumb(Joba).

Teams that celebrate just due to being happy > players who celebrate because they have an ego and want to have attention.

Personally whatever floats your boat is fine for me, but I see nothing wrong with stuff like this at all. I like to think how kids would celebrate and well this is exactly what I'd think they would do. The game of baseball is supposed to be fun, cause well it's a game! If you won and didn't celebrate I'd question you a lot more if you even cared about playing baseball.

Are baseball fans trying to challenge golfers and golf fans for stuffiness?

The only thing missing is "You're the Best" playing in the background after he wins.

The game winning hits/ walkoffs don't irritate me all that much (although i must admit, the synchronized dance is a bit old already)

What irritates me the most is closers like Paplebon who come in to get a save which is the only job he has and goes bananas whenever he gets the third out!! It's fake in my opinion, some fake display so all the Red Sox fans will blab about how intense of a player he is!

Paplebon is clinically insane I believe so I give him a pass
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
