You see a lot of wild things at college house parties. You see a lot of wild things in baseball clubhouses in a division clinching celebration. The Brewers merged both in their celebration on Sunday.
While there is obviously some crossover in the two parties, the baseball celebrations generally involve a higher quality of alcohol, and more of it being purposefully spilled. But one thing crossed over into the Brewers celebration that you generally only see at college house parties:
Where someone has two 40 oz beers taped to both their hands, they cannot remove them until they finish the beers. Not to go to the bathroom, not to wipe your eyes clear of champagne, not for anything. For anyone unfamiliar with the reference, there’s a movie called “Edward Scissor-hands” where Edward literally had scissors for hands. Replace the scissors with 40 oz beers, and you have Edward Forty-hands.
The Milwaukee Brewers appeared to make their rookies do the “Edward Forty-hands” in their celebration of the 2021 NL Central title.
Aaron Ashby, Angel Perdomo, and several other Brewers were seen having the large beers literally taped to their hands, and it seemed to be only the rookies who did so, likely not by their own choice.
For the Milwaukee BREWERS, a team that has been associated with beer for its entire existence, to celebrate the playoffs in such a manner is absolutely perfect and hilarious.
This is how one should expect a Brewer to celebrate. With two 40 ounce beers taped to your hands.
Milwaukee clinched their 3rd NL Central title in franchise history with a week to go in the regular season. They are going to be the No. 2 seed in the NL playoffs and face the winner of the NL East.
There were plenty of fun moments during the celebration, including Bob Uecker stumbling out to the team picture as if he were hammered, and then dropping face down on the ground in front of the group.
Bob Uecker is the best. Period.
At 87 years old, Ueck is still one of the guys and he’s as sharp as ever. He brings fun and humor everywhere he goes and there’s no one better to party with.
They don’t plan on this being their last party of the season either. The Brewers have their eyes on a World Series title and if/when they get to that party, the celebration is going to be absolutely epic.
There’s six games left in the regular season.
