Picture Of The Day: How Japan Celebrate Baseball Victories

I have never been a big fan of fireworks.  Just a bunch of over-priced sparkles flying into the air, making a bunch of noise, then disappearing while leaving behind an terrible odor.  Seems like a rather dumb way to celebrate a home run or a victory for any Major League Baseball team.

Japanese baseball, on the other hand, seems to be on to something with their celebratory sperm-shaped balloon tossing.  After all, nothing says “win” quite like the sight of a thousand inflatable sperms swimming through the clear night’s sky.
