I'm Sure This Is Perfectly Sanitary
What's not so traditional is this method of drinking beer used by Rays outfielder Johnny Gomes after the Rays clinched the AL East on Friday. Yes, that's indeed a cup in Gomes's hand.
But there's no way he actually drank out of it, right? I mean that would just be gross beyond belief, especially considering word is that the cup had actually been used by a teammate. Um.....
By the way, Gomes even managed to get skipper Joe Maddon to take a swig of the magical athletic cup elixir a little later. I'm sure Maddon was thrilled to do that.
Hey, it just goes to show you that you should never underestimate team chemistry. If anything, the Rays have too much it. WAY too much of it.
