OMG.  I thought LA didn't allow you to openly carry a gun in public?   I guess with no crowd . . .

They did just lose 4-0 to a bunch of random guys wearing Marlins uniforms.

:hysterical:

Wasn't it ESPN that did a documentary on him?  It was terribly sad that that one moment almost ruined his life.  I can't imagine anyone was happier when the Cubs finally won.

I imagine he hated the Cubs and Chicago by then.

I watched this twice and I don't get the outrage, it looked like he was holding up his elbow:

I don’t get the outrage, but he’s definitely holding his arm out straight. Look at #29, not the guy in the middle of the frame. Hendricks (16) grabs his arm and straightens it for him.

honestly, the first arm raise looks like he's thinking high 5 line.  I don't get the second, other than if it was an "oops, my bad on the arm" thing.  Seriously doubt it's meant for anything or even a joke because no one else seemed in on it.

geez, I was focused on the guy in the middle of the clip and completely missed #29, yeah, that looks bad.
