Do whatever you want. Why are people always trying to ruin everybody's good time?

jaylectricity: Do whatever you want. Why are people always trying to ruin everybody's good time?


You jump in the pool. And if you're a Diamondback, you send over drinks.

What you don't do is whine that the Dodgers have no class and were mean to you.
 
2013-09-20 02:09:24 AM
Oh no, people who play A GAME for a living are HAVING FUN. Stop taking sports so seriously. Also, penalizing endzone celebrations in football takes the fun out of it.
 
2013-09-20 02:24:08 AM
The Diamondbacks had apparently requested that the Dodgers not celebrate on the field, which is frankly a pussy move.

Then there's this:

Diamondbacks president and CEO Derrick Hall said in a statement to the Arizona Republic, "I could call it disrespectful and classless, but they don't have a beautiful pool at their old park and must have really wanted to see what one was like."

Nothing personal against Fark's D-Backs contingent, who are good fans, but this franchise's front office is staffed by whiny coonts.
 
2013-09-20 02:33:53 AM
Meh. It's not like it was some close race where the Dbag fans were all in and the Dodgers rubbed our noses in it. It's been over for Dbags since around the all star game. I know it's a pretty hot rivalry and Arizona hates most Dodgers fans, but let the team have their moment. It was an outstanding comeback.

It seems to extend to some of the players too. Willie Bloomquist & Miguel Montero hate everything, as far as I can tell.

To be fair to D-Backs players, they also have Brandon McCarthy, all around Cool Dude™:

Celebrating is fun. I don't care how and where you do it. Only thing to care about is what we need to do to celebrate in our pool next year.

I've basically just assumed they signed him by accident. It's the only thing that makes sense.

Get traded to the Dodgers.

Candygram for Mongo: Get traded to the Dodgers.


If the Dodgers clinch a playoff berth while in Arizona next year, that'd be one heck of a season. Their last visit there is August 27.

Unless you're suggesting that after they clinch (wherever they are), they take a trip to Chase Field just to jump in the pool. In which case, I approve.

JUMP IN THE POOL

And if the D-backs clinch at Dodger Stadium next year, they are free to jump in Chavez's Ravine.

Go Dodgers. What a fun year to be a fan.
 
2013-09-20 03:24:42 AM
Sadly, the Dodgers do not play the Rays next year, depriving them of a chance to celebrate by jumping into the Tropicana Field touch tank and riding the manta rays like horsies.
 
2013-09-20 03:29:37 AM
Don't want to have to see other people celebrating in your park?  Win.
 
2013-09-20 04:04:48 AM
I would jump in the pool every time.  But this would be unrelated to whether I just clinched a playoff berth or not.
 
2013-09-20 05:07:58 AM
Wow, Arizona, that's a pretty thin-skinned response. Should have won the game if you didn't want the celebration at your park.

"Act like you've been there before" has got to be the stupidest piece of advice to ever give someone.  Maybe for little gains like a home run, sure, you don't have to celebrate every time you plant one in the outfield.  But if you expect someone to not celebrate a walk-off home run, or clinching a division, or winning a playoff series, then frankly you're in the wrong line of work.  I hear accountants don't celebrate successful quarters too much...just an expensive steak dinner at a pretentious club or something like that.  Maybe that's your style, maybe that's where you've "been before". If so, go there. Don't bring your "accountants' celebrations" to sports, 'cuz frankly, they don't match.
 
2013-09-20 06:19:52 AM
If you don't want people to jump in your pool, don't build a pool.
 
2013-09-20 06:30:22 AM
So... I don't really follow baseball so I feel compelled to ask...

Why the Fark do the Diamondbacks have a pool in their ballpark? And who (besides victory-drunk athletes) in their right mind would ever use that pool?

Came to say this.  Well, the first sentence at least.  You kind of lost me with all that accounting/steak stuff.  But yeah, it's a hackneyed phrase that needs to be retired, 'zonamitter.

They did just what the AZ asked, they didn't celebrate on the field, they celebrated in the pool. Talk about sore losers.
 
2013-09-20 10:15:51 AM
I wonder if Ken Kendricks asked if the Dodgers would switch in to Diamondback uniforms prior to jumping into the pool?

The D-backs did the same thing to some Giants fans just a few weeks after that...
 
2013-09-20 10:45:55 AM
Oh no. That breaks baseballs long-standing unwritten rule of not jumping into another teams promotional/gimmick swimming pool! The Diamondbacks really have no choice now, but to stack the Dodgers All You Can Eat Seats with members of the Major League Eating association.

2013-09-20 10:57:41 AM
As a Dodger fan, I thought it was hysterical. My only thought was that I hope they left a couple thousand as a tip to the pool guy who probably had to work overtime to clean it.

The only image that got to me in a sad way was Gibson standing there watching them with his intense stare. I love Gibby because of 1988.

The breakdancing in the clubhouse was great.

I just lost it picturing the Dodgers clinching the division again next season, then renting the pool on the D-Backs' final homestand and hanging out there in full uniform the entire time.

I hope an opposing team never wins a World Series in Chase Field, because it seems like they'd have to celebrate in the parking lot.

That is the proper response to this situation.  You don't like it, you have the ability to stop them from having the chance to celebrate in your pool by winning more games.

Also, you would think front office guys for a team that has a pool in their stadium would have a better sense of humor.  I mean, you have a pool in your stadium.
 
2013-09-20 11:36:59 AM
What, so they put a swimming pool in their stadium and don't want people to use it?  That's just wasteful.

Pretty much this. And I'm a die-hard Giants fan. They won. They had the good graces to wait until the stadium was empty before coming out and celebrating in the pool so as to not rub the D-Backs fans' noses in the loss. Good on the Blue Crew for that.

The only thing better would have been if Vin Scully had done a play-by-play of the pool party.

Now, if you'll all excuse me, I'm off to smother my tears in garlic fries and Gordon Beirsch...

Money.  

For only $4000 you can rent it for one game.  Which is about 3 hours.

And I've never seen a game where the pool wasn't rented out.  Apparently the Scottsdale people don't like to use their own pools for their kids' parties.
