Will the Cubs’ Weird Celebration Ritual Become the New Trend?
One of the biggest moments of the baseball game came in the sixth inning when catcher David Ross hit a big home run off of Indians ace Andrew Miller. It was the type of thing worth celebrating. The 39-year-old Ross had announced earlier this season that this would be his last. What a way to go into retirement.
Obviously, there was a lot of celebration with him and his teammates. For those of us watching the game at home, though, the celebration looked a bit out of the norm.
We've all seen plenty of fist bumps as a way to celebrate, but as Ross came up to Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward he did something a little bit different. That, my friends, was a 'dick bump.'
But it wasn't just a one-off celebratory inside joke between Heyword and Ross. He continued into the dugout and proceeded to dick bump each and every teammate he could. They were all lining up for it.
Apparently, this has been Ross' way of celebrating for most of the season, but it's the first time an audience of this size has ever seen it happen on camera.
Is this going to be a new trend? Will this be the way we all celebrate good things in the future? "Hey, Bob. Great work with those TPS reports." "Thanks, Greg!" *Dick Bump* Only time will tell.
For now, at least we know that if the dick bump becomes the norm, we all have David Ross to thank for it. Even with a World Series ring, this may be his true legacy.
