The Rays are big supporters of celebrating an AL East title

Taking a page from NHLers who sip nectar from Lord Stanley's Cup (they did clinch the AL East in Hockeytown, after all) some Tampa Bay Rays used what was on hand (or on something else) to enjoy themselves during the postgame celebration at Comerica Park on Friday.

Here, outfielder Jonny Gomes drinks a beer shooter out of a cup — no, not the souvenir kind — which might belong to teammate Dioner Navarro and which might not have been sanitized previous to use. Gomes and pals later applied some friendly peer pressure to skipper Joe Maddon, who at first resisted then drank up using the support device. Talk about a team being tight with each other.
