    It would never make it in the NFL but it has a chance on Broadway.

    That is really funny.

    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    waiting for baseball to kill these type of celebrations.

    I agree it was a fun and different take on it, but it was too planned and contrived to warrant the tag "greatest." I'll take really spontaneous celebration any day of the week. High marks for creativity though and he did nail the landing.

    That was a huge homer. It moved the Brewcrew withing 4 games of .500!

    If ya think about it, shouldn't they have planned something even better given the magnitude?

    Okay, I also loved the originality of the celebration--but I still do not understand the need to un-tuck one's uniform while rounding the bases?

    ...and I don't want to hear that a properly worn jersey prevents you from "truly enjoying" the home plate celebration experience.

    Sadly, that will only lead to more unwanted celebrations.

    Usually, those types of things seem to originate with what happens to you if you don't do it yourself first.

    He's a big guy and the game was over so he felt the need to untuck his uniform.

    As for the celebration, I hope they don't do it again. It would take away from that one if they repeated it. Who was it a few years ago that was whining about the Reds doing "the bounce" at home after a walkoff? LaRussa or Dusty?
