#Dodgers Celebrate in #Diamondbacks' Swimming Pool

Here's Bill Plaschke:

It was the most unusual of clinching celebrations. Yet for the Diamondbacks, it was also one of the most infuriating. Citing security issues, team officials had earlier asked the Dodgers not to return to the field once they entered their clubhouse. Even though the stadium was virtually empty when the Dodgers ran to the pool, the Diamondbacks were furious at what they perceived as the Dodgers' lack of respect for their team, their fans and their building.

"I could call it disrespectful and classless, but they don't have a beautiful pool at their old park and must have really wanted to see what one was like," said Diamondbacks President Derrick Hall, a former Dodgers executive, in an e-mailed statement.
Well, seems like you don't go all hog wild in someone else's house. And it made the front-page of today's paper.

But see, "Why Los Angeles Dodgers jumping into Arizona's pool wasn't disrespectful."
