Yahoo/Big League stew ^ | 9/20/13 | Mike Oz

Posted on 09/20/2013 2:08:20 PM PDT by Vaquero

The Los Angeles Dodgers' celebratory dip in the Arizona Diamondbacks' pool after clinching the NL West on Thursday isn't just the talk of the baseball world. It's got even one of the country's most famous politicians fuming.

John McCain — the Arizona senator and 2008 presidential candidate — blasted the Dodgers on Friday via Twitter, saying much the same thing that many Diamondbacks fans were saying Thursday. Although, "spoiled brats" is particularly delicious....

Jerk McBane needs pay attention to defeating the Obama agenda....which he sez is impossible.

Is the senator getting paid by The Onion or semi-serious Semmons now?

Short of graft, pay-offs, back room deals, etc., just how does someone like him come to be worth so much? Enquiring minds need that answered.

Ah! The famous McCain temper shows its ugly face again.

If only he could channel that temper for those he should be opposing rather than at the Dodgers or Rand, Cruz and the Tea Party.

It's their policy that fans sitting in those high visibility seats are not to wear the opposing team's colors or paraphernalia. If you don't like the rule, don't buy the tickets, or better yet, build your own stadium.

They did what was expected of them for that money and fame. McCain has done nothing but spit in the faces of those who supported him.

Disclosure: I was a Dodger fan for more than 30 years until Arizona got a team. Here is my opinion.

*

Yeah, it was boorish, but maybe they got caught up in the moment. They’ve had a good year and it’s been a while for them.

*

“overpaid, immature, arrogant, spoiled brats” describes most professional athletes.

*

I love Chase Field but the swimming pool is a bit odd.

*

Go Dodgers!

The jackasses in Arizona had the gall to ask the Dodgers not to celebrate at all on the field when they won. Is that stadium policy too?

If I were on the Dodgers, I would have done what they did...stick it right back in the Douchebacks faces!

Headline should be:

John McCain describes similarities between himself, many congress critters, and the Dodgers as overpaid, immature, arrogant, spoiled brats.

He should know-it takes one to know one.LOL

"Bob" was a great name.

I've been in a few stadiums, none of them the old historical ones. I've been to Dodger Stadium probably 50 times, Angel (or whatever they call it now) Stadium a dozen times, Jack Murphy stadium, and a few others, and I love Chase Field the best. It's air conditioned, the seats are close to the action, and the variety of food is amazing. It's like a mall food court with a field in the middle.

Nothing like watching a game in shaded, air conditioned comfort while eating a grilled Italian sausage sandwich and sipping on a vodka with a twist.
