perhaps it is a good thing...I dunno...
but when a team wins the World Series, the losing team looks sad, almost morose in the dugout, then they abruptly head for the showers while the winning team is estatic and celebrate on the field and in the locker room....and in roughly 40 WS final games that I have watched over 60 years I dont remember seeing members of the 2 teams making nice with each other....afterward, in news conferences, the losing team members/manager congratulate the winners....and the winners say what a great team the losers were.....
It's PC bullshit..........got to set an example for the kids you know?
They also used to present the Lombardi Trophy in the winner’s locker room, rather than having this spectacle on the field after the game. Even in the NHL, the players shake hands before the Stanley Cup comes out. The NFL should at least wait a few minutes before clearing the field for the presentation, to allow the players to congratulate each other.
“...so I never understood the winning and losing team glad handing each other after the game.”
There was a day in our nation when BOTH teams—whichever sport—congratulated each other for the game, even though some players were seething with hatred either for losing or for the other team. It was a sad day for me when the tradition caught on that only the winning baseball team congratulated themselves. And baseball has always been my favorite sport.
All true. only in the Stanley Cup playoffs is the handshake mandatory.
I didnt watch/listen to much of the post-game, but he appeared composed, classy and polite during his post-game interview.
I’m glad the saints won, i’m a big Jon Vilma fan, but I dont read too much into him leaving the field when the gun went off. He faced the music after he showered.
