One of the highly debated celebrations of all-time has now become the number one most debated celebration of all-time. When the Los Angeles Dodgers clinched the NL West they celebrated by jumping in the Diamondbacks’ pool. The impromptu pool party prompted everyone including John McCain to condemn the Dodgers. One person who defended the the players in this new Watergate scandal was Dodger Scribe writer Tony Jackson, however newly leaked details has changed his mind:
The reason I am doing an about-face here is that it has come to my attention that one of the Dodgers players who jumped in the pool — and I will do him the favor of leaving his name out of this for now — openly and loudly bragged after leaving the pool about having urinated in it.
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.
Maybe the Dodgers were confused and thought they were at the Oakland Coliseum.
