    Is it just me or do the celebrations get annoying to anyone else?

    I watched the last inning after the game on mlb.tv and the celebration and mugging of Puig after the game winner.. Now don't get me wrong, being happy is fine, but it's mid May, not the game winner in 7th game of the world series. I remember when the BRM players just shook hands after a win and went on their merry ways. These guys all act like they won the World Series, the Super Bowl, the NBA championships and the Stanley Cup in mid May.. It just feels over the top celebrating one game when they're in dead last place still early in the season.
    Hey, make it to first place then celebrate.. Last place is nothing to wildly celebrate about IMO.. Then again maybe I'm just getting too old..

    Yep. Me too. Too many junior highish skits for a last place team.

    I was at my son's little league game tonight. The opposing team won and went crazy but I thought nothing of it, after all they are 9. I saw the highlight of the Reds winning and going crazy like they were 9. I thought nothing of it, after all they are grown men playing a kids' game.

    Yea, I grew up watching the big red machine too and personally would be more refrained than a 9 year old on a losing team winning a game, but what is socially acceptable has changed even if I haven't. Moan about it to your friends and wife but not to a forum whom most have welcomed the change. Nothing will come of it outside of being labeled as one whom yells at clouds.

    It was the teams first walk off win of the year that was been difficult so far. In a way, I think they were letting off some steam.
    * Attended the 1990 and 2010 Reds Division clinchers *

    Listened to the 1995 Div. Clincher on WLW - Watched the 2012 Div. Clincher on FOX.
    Watched the 2013 Playoff Clincher on FSO - Fiance' is a UK fan
    GO STEELERS - Go Buckeyes - Go SIXERS

    I just hope half the team shows up today with bleach blonde mohawks. That is how you build winning momentum.

    incorrigible

    Also, imagine if Jr had tried hard like that on every play rather than just the ones where the game was on the line. He would've probably have been a HOFer.

    Lots of things to complain about this year.

    Don't think this is one of them. I loved it.
    I'm just going to go find a cash machine.
