Video: Prince Fielder and the Brewers go boom in home run celebration

I don't know how I missed this one but thanks to Peter Abraham of the LoHud Yankees Blog, I can bring it to you now. Below is video (until MLB removes it) of Prince Fielder and the Brewers celebrating a walk off home run against the Giants a few days ago.

A lot of people probably think this is classless and unsportsmanlike, but let's lighten up a bit. The Brewers are out of the race for the playoffs and they are having some fun. The one thing that is always so strange to me is how taunting and celebrations are accepted parts of football and basketball, but in baseball you're never supposed to have any fun. Sure this celebration was a little excessive and would be a 15 yard penalty in the NFL, but it's all about exposure these days.
