I agree with every.single.word of your column Re: the celebration
Bottom line was the celebration a bit over the top?
Perhaps, but given the moment it wasn't in my view.  The bat toss was dangerous but ...
If we were on the other end I would have been upset but would have moved on rather quickly (had way too much experience in that recently)

In my view the team has followed Toby V's personality and that is a good thing

BTW, I was more interested in Tony V's mad dash down the right field foul line
He was down by the right field stands before Drew had started his parade around the bases

This team seems to ruffle a lot of feathers wherever they go. They've got a serious '86 Mets vibe. I HATED the '86 Mets.

I thought the bat flip was unnecessary but I mean the guy just smacked a walk-off grand slam in an NCAA Regional and we're gonna take him to the mat for "taunting"? Completely ridiculous, imo. I especially loved the comment on the SDS article that claimed, "If he had a future in the MLB he just blew it."

I agree with BDV, too. If you aren't a Tennessee fan, you aren't going to like this team. And the more success Tony V has, the more disliked he's going to be as a coach. He's brash and a little in-your-face, but if this team hadn't adopted his swagger, they wouldn't be nearly as successful as they are.
