    Normally I’m the kind of guy who finds excessive celebration annoying and ridiculous. You can enjoy the moment without making a spectacle of it and especially without being an a-hole and rubbing someone’s face in it. But damn! Is there anything on God’s green earth more stupidly oversensitive than a baseball pitcher? Muncy watched the ball for a couple of seconds. He didn’t dance, he didn’t point at the pitcher or mean-mug him. He just did what virtually every soul in the stadium just did. And no one would even notice or care if the pitcher didn’t draw everyone’s attention to the fact that he got his feelings hurt.
