Today ain’t any normal Monday, and this ain’t gonna be your normal Hit & Run- because we have some serious celebratin’ to do. Perhaps you haven’t heard- but the Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs and Philadelphia Phillies all clinched their division titles over the weekend… and as you might expect, GordonShumway, Clare and I are a tad bit excited about that.
OK, we’re freakin’ ecstatic. We’re bouncing off the walls, rally towel waving, champagne swigging, hugging random strangers, put an empty Bud Light case on our head and dance around in our underwear ECSTATIC. And we’re triple tag-teaming this H&R to share a little bit of our excitement with you.
And, of course, I’ve gathered together plenty of pictures of celebratory ballplayers covered in champagne after the jump…
PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES – Clare
On Sunday night, Clare went to bed a very happy girl.
And some Philly celebrations:
CHICAGO CUBS – Texas Gal
Thanks to Barrett
for pissing Zambrano off
turned season around
Cubs fans don’t have jobs
but we have Soriano
and that’s plenty good
Sweet Lou lead us all
to the promised land where there’s
no more billy goat
Cubs clinch Division
How do you like them apples
mister Steve Bartman?
And some Cubby celebrations:
BOSTON RED SOX – GordonShumway
Because a picture is worth 1,000 squees, all I can say is “Let the playoffs begin!”
That’s literally all I can say because unfortunately, shouting “F the Angels” makes me sound like I’m less “baseball fan” and more “threat to myself and others”.
Yes, this is seriously how I watch Red Sox games, which explains why Curt and I are usually alone. Inside the glove is a David Ortiz home run baseball from the Cubs-Sox series in the summer of ’05. A number of other items, including a Wade Boggs Starting Lineup figure and a World Series program will all be arranged around the television in a configuration too complicated to mention here.
I’ll be OK. I promise. Go Sox.
And some Fenway celebrations:
And since this is a Texas Gal post, you know that I have to include a bonus yummy picture of nutty, crazy, barely clothed Jonathan Papelbon:
And to console our own Metschick, I’m gonna post a picture of the scrumptious Osi Umenyiora, who recorded SIX sacks yesterday for the NY Giants (and I know Metsy happens to find him very hot indeed, so I’m hoping this will cheer her up a bit).
