Besides old people and the media also the Mets. And the rest of the Nationals. And the rest of MLB, pretty much.
I like enthusiasm. Blowing kisses to the opposing dugout, waving to the fans, and doing the crotch grab is gonna get you thrown at. If you can dish it out, you should be able to take it and not flip out when you get brushed back.
I prefer to let people be themselves. I'm not threatened by the way people behave. Brash people don't bother me one bit. The "way" I see it, the only reason people insist on the "way" is because they are intimidated by a certain demeanor and this is perpetuated by media types and old people.
