Tampa Rays: Two champagne celebrations and the playoffs haven't started yet

    Champagne celebration for making the playoffs.
    Champagne celebration for making winning the division.

    Possible three more champagne celebrations.

    This is an extension of the "everybody gets a trophy" mentality. For fuck's sake, two champagne celebrations and its not even October yet?
     
  2. Nothing wrong with savoring the moment.

    Then again, if you're just happy to be there, you're not going any further.

    They've never won 73 games before. I think they're entitled.

    It's the fuckin' Rays. If they wanted to burn down a building to celebrate finally not being shitty, I say let 'em.

    Heck, they could let all 5 of their season ticket holders light the matches.

    If they win the World Series, it will be five champagne celebrations. Its stupid.

    One year I was covering the A's and they clinched a playoff spot before they had clinched the division. On the day they clinched a playoff spot, they all had a toast with champagne in little plastic glasses. Then they went wild after winning the division.

    That was, I believe, in 2002, their third consecutive postseason appearance.

    I think the Rays are entitled to pop the champagne as often as they want.

    Like someone said, they're entitled to it.

    Good grief ... this franchise has been one of the saddest sacks in professional sports, and now someone is cracking them for popping the corks a couple of times?

    Where I went to school, we learned how to a build a bridge and get over it.

    If the Nats ever win anything, I may never stop with the champagne. You folks come and pour it on my grave, you hear?

    You'll be up and celebrating. And we'll still help you pour.

    Good lord, man. Did you see the fuckin' Red Sox spray champagne over making the wild card the other night. Chill and have a drink, my man.
