Well, it’s that time of year again—the time when grown men in stretchy pajama pants gather together in a room with walls covered in plastic to waste tons of perfectly good alcohol. I am referring, of course, to the MLB postseason and the spraying of bubbly liquids in the locker room after a team has (a) secured a spot in the playoffs or (b) clinched a playoff series victory. What started out as a spontaneous celebration is now an ornately planned ritual in which every victorious team takes part.
Today, with the NLCS all set and the ALCS about to be finalized tonight, it’s the perfect time to do a list of baseball celebration GIFs. Why? Because they’re fun. And sometimes weird. And sometimes awkward. Not all of them involve champagne, of course, but they’re all amusing because they all feature grown men acting like children all jacked up on sugar and on their way to Disney World. So enjoy.
