    They put up plastic tarp. Then put sponsored by Budweiser signs up. Everyone puts on stupid goggles and they wait around for players giving interviews on the field. They used to be spontaneous up until the 80's. No one used to care if clothes got soaked in champagne or beer. They used to smoke victory cigars. Now it's like a corporate event.

    Great observation. I never thought of it that way but you're right.

    The post season is very overrated.

    The 3 beer salute is how you celebrate a championship.

    Celebrating a Division or Conference win is lame.

    The Lakers never, ever celebrated a Division or Conference win, they set their sights on the real prize, which was the World Championship.

    Do they have to do it when they clinch in the regular season AND after every round?

    This is how you celebrate. A little champagne for the mayor.

    I can't fucking stand these fucking celebrations anymore. Gayer than shit!

    If I'm the manager, no celebrations until you fucking win a championship.

    My team (who's not in it for the first time in a while) always waited for all the players to get to the clubhouse after interviews on the field. They didn't wanna start without one of their guys.

    Other teams adopted it.

    I see no issue. :dontknow:

    The Gatorade dump in the NFL still has the element of surprise and no sponsorship-yet. (I don't include the green shit.)
