Last week, after clinching the National League West against the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Los Angeles Dodgers irked many ’round the league by jumping into the pool at Chase Field to celebrate their success. Disrespectful, yes. Classlessness, yes.
That big of a deal, probably not.
However, a new development may really p*** some people off. (Pun intended).
According to CBS Sports, many of the Dodgers players who jumped in the pool urinated in it. Tom Jackson, a veteran sports reporter who runs a Dodgers fan site, is absolutely appalled at the allegation. He had this to say:
“To me, that takes this to a whole different place. It takes it from a giddy, spontaneous celebration to an ugly, disgusting display of utter classlessness …. There also are indications that MULTIPLE Dodgers players urinated into the pool, but I can’t tell you that with any certainty. It’s just what I’ve heard. What I can tell you is that it was only a handful of guys — maybe eight, give or take — who ran out and jumped into the pool. It would be presumptuous to assume that every one of them had the same thoughts running through his brain. Maybe there were some who really were just celebrating, nothing more. Maybe there were others who meant it as a direct slap in the face to the Diamondbacks.”
So the real question is, will we see number twos in the Chavez Revine next season?
