Sen. John McCain Calls L. A. Dodgers 'Spoiled Brats'

Posted: Updated:

Pool Gate!

The Dodgers division winning deep plunge in the Diamondbacks pool has sent some Arizonans off the deep end. After the team clinched the National League West division yesterday with a win over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field, they celebrated with the customary champagne showers in the clubhouse. But all that champagne and beer spray must have gone to their heads, because they decided to jump in the Diamondbacks swimming pool in the outfield, despite the face the Diamondbacks organization asked the Dodgers not to come back on to the field.  Some Diamondbacks players and managers said they weren't happy with the Dodgers dip and Arizona's favorite son also weighed in.  Senator John McCain sent out this tweet:

 John McCain         @SenJohnMcCain

No-class act by a bunch of overpaid, immature, arrogant, spoiled brats! "The #Dodgers are idiots"

When Dodgers pitcher Brian Wilson, got wind of the senator's slam, he sent out this rebuttal:

Brian Wilson         @BrianWilson38

Senator McComplain knows a thing or two about coming in second and watching someone take a plunge in the pool (I mean poll) #POoLITICS

Manager Don Mattingly said he's not too concerned about the controversy. He says it seems to be overblown, because there were very few fans left in the stands.  He said the players were just blowing off steam and showing raw emotion.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.

    New York City is exploring ways to curb the speed of taxis. The Taxi and Limousine Commission this week issued a request for information on "anti speeding vehicle technologies."  The measures include devices that can intervene when drivers exceed posted speeds and "advisory systems" that can sound alarms when reckless driving is detected.
