In any sport, making the playoffs is always a reason to celebrate, so when the Los Angeles Dodgers clinched the NL West in Phoenix yesterday, they partied like there was no tomorrow!
However, the Arizona Diamondbacks had one simple request for them: Don't celebrate on their field in front of their fans.
The boys in blue respected their wishes and hit the locker room for some good old champagne showers! But after the fans cleared out, the Dodgers made their way to the right field for a little pool party!
That's right. There's a pool in Chase Field, and it's amazing!
Well, the D-Backs were NOT happy with the Dodgers splish-splashing around in their ballpark, and they let them know it!
Veteran infielder Willie Bloomquist, vented his frustration on the incident and said:
"I think it's tired and disrespectful. It's surprising, because they have a lot of veteran guys on that team that I thought were classier than that."
Yikes! Sounds like someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed!
Here's the thing, Willie. What good is having a pool in your ballpark if it's not going to be used properly??
Besides, if you don't want the Dodgers celebrating at your stadium you could have, you know, not lost at home!
Looks like they'll just have to settle this in the playoffs! What's that? The D-Backs might not make the playoffs?
Oh. Well, better luck next year then!
