Noted as one of the most spiritually damaged teams in MLB history, the Los Angeles Dodgers furthered their reputation by (allegedly, but probably) pissing in the Diamondbacks' pool after clinching the NL West (ugh). Gross monsters, all of them.
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.
Disrespectful, crude, and rude. That sums up the Dodgers. No one should be too surprised. (Fine, sure, we all pee in the pool now and then. It feels good! But still.)
Speaking of postseason, the A's nabbed the AL West title on Sunday, which, if all goes according to plan, could result in a California World Series. Fingers (and swords) crossed.
