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



Ummmm COMPLETELY different context, I guarantee that's a pic of him winning a Tournament i.e winning the finals so not the same at all...

The Tiger fist pump is way better than the Papelbon fist pump.

Ugh - I wish everyone who doesn't like it would just look the other way. As a number of posts have stated, let the guys do what they want. It's fun for them and entertainment for us. The NFL has already ruined interesting celebrations. The NBA keeps their players on a pretty short leash as well. I miss the old days where intensity/joy/whatever was allowed. Players - if it bothers you, do something about it (IE come back stronger in the next game). As fans - if you're offended, it gives you more ammunition against another team.

Some of the guys can go over the top, but for the most part I think baseball players are pretty good about regulating themselves. If they don't, then the other team may try to "regulate" them the next time they play each other. And celebrating during the game is much worse then post game celebrations.

The whiny fake injury who-is-me crap I can't stand though....which is why I don't watch soccer that much.

I'd much rather see a team and/or player celebrate a win rather than just walk off the field like they don't care. There's nothing at all wrong with being intense. Some people play for money, some because they are "supposed" to, and others play because they are hard-nosed bloodthirsty competitors. Give me the team of hard-nosed bloodthirsty competitors every single day of the week and twice on Sundays.

I don't have a problem with team celebrations. I do think that closers like Paps look a little silly with their fist pumping.

My biggest problem comes from poor sportsmanship issues. I don't think team celebrations fall in that category, unless they are way over the top or mocking of the other team or individual players.

If I'm not mistaken the Braves use to have a relief pitcher who would run around the infield and high five his teammates after a Strikeout. But I can't for the life of me remember who it was.

hahah...I've never heard of that, but if someone actually did that after a strikeout he would be my hero. Particularly if the inning were still going on and there were runners on base.

But does it trump the Jeter fist pump as well?
