Iím not positive but I think it goes back to the second game of the series when Neris blew the save by giving up three runs in the ninth and then got ejected for hitting a batter. The Dodgers were doing a lot of celebrating (who could blame them) and I think it got under Nerisís skin. He got the chance to celebrate right back at them with the two word phrase that gets you banned from HPA. Btw JB, I agree with you, it was poor taste.
I donít think the Dodgers celebration was over the top, considering the situation, but the celebrations in sports in general have gotten out of hand.
A guy hits a homer and thereís is a handshake routine that requires a Broadway choreographer to arrange. What if a pitcher and catcher did that after a strikeout? I donít think it would go over very well with the opposing team. The celebrations need to be toned down. IMO.
Itís funny until somebody gets hurt, then itís hilarious
