It's one thing for Arizona Diamondbacks
players to be upset at the Los Angeles Dodgers
for their celebration methods, but it's quite another when a United States Senator and former Presidential candidate rips them and calls them "idiots."
A number of Dodgers players celebrated Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks, which clinched the National League West title, by jumping into the pool at the Diamondbacks home field after the fans had left.
Arizona Senator John McCain responded by Tweeting: "No-class act by a bunch of overpaid, immature, arrogant, spoiled brats! The #Dodgers are idiots"
The response by the Diamondbacks players was varied. Pitcher Brandon McCarth ywas not bothered by it at all, but infielder Willie Bloomquist
called it "tired and disrespectful."
No one seemed more outraged than Senator McCain, though.
Dodgers relief pitcher Brian Wilson
responded to McCain's Tweet with one of his own: "Senator McComplain knows a thing or two about coming in second and watching someone take a plunge in the pool (I mean poll) #POoLITICS"
