I've always thought it was THE most idiotic thing done in all of sport. It is just pathetic to see teams do this time after time after winning what 9 times out of 10 is a freaking meaningless game in the grand scheme of things. Game 7 of a Division series or WS yeah sure but the Pirates beating the Nationals on a walk off to go 52-96 on the season %-6 Just pathetic.

I don't even really feel bad for someone who gets injured like that. It was like when Madson broke his toe kicking a chair. It's just a shame and a big waste of talent.

This guy here nailed it on the head exactly. It reminds me of the time the Bill Gramatica jumped around like a lunatic after kicking a meaningless field goal and tore his knee ligament, ENDING HIS CAREER.

Don't know if I'd go that far as it's pretty much customary around the league to slam dance on home plate after a walk off. I guess you can call the tradition idiotic because it is a bit foolish and dangerous as proven here. I still feel bad for the guy as it is a pretty crazy way to get injured. I wonder how much it changes the walk-off celebrations league wide.
