We'll have a proper Oktoberfest: Party Boy column to celebrate the Los Angeles Angels of Angelheim's third consecutive AL West division championship, but until that gets cobbled together, here's a little celebration video:
Of course, this is an unusual celebration since the Angels didn't stay in the clubhouse; they actually trotted out to the right-centerfield wall to honor their fallen teammate Nick Adenhart. This was truly a touching moment and I probably would have wept a little bit while watching if it wasn't for a garrulous Rex Hudler yapping his fat mouth all the while. (hear more of that babillard here)
Rex, there's a time to be a color commentator and there's a time to shut the fuck up. This would be the latter. You remind me of the jackass who, during a moment of silence to honor our veterans, yells at other people to remove their hats. It's a moment of silence, not a moment of chiding.
But oddest of all was the fact that the Angels were spraying champagne as they walked out to honor Adenhart, who was killed by a drunk driver. If that doesn't send mixed signals, then this image surely will. Jeez.
