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.

    It's a running joke that if you mention the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center to nearly anyone in Hollywood they're going to know exactly what you're talking about because odds are they might have gotten their first big break there. Would you believe some Hollywood's biggest stars -- Meryl Streep, Michael Douglas, Angela Bassett -- got their start in a big red barn in the middle of nowhere.
