Nyjer Morgan may be eccentric. He may be a child at times. He may have been a locker room “cancer” in the past, and he may even have been louder off the field than his talent on the field should allow. But tonight, he’s a hero.
As Miller Park erupts, with 44,000 in attendance and millions across the state spill tears of finality as the NLDS comes to a close with the Brewers rejoicing, Nyjer Morgan celebrated like only he knows how:
“Yeah! Woo! F*** YEAH! F*** YEAH!”
Again, eccentric; perhaps a little out of line. But there is no denying his youthful exuberance and all-out glee. Morgan has fun. He enjoys the game, and his celebration makes me feel like a 10-year child, remembering my very first “big game” moment. Simply said, he’s a blast to watch and a blast to root for. Bathe in this moment Milwaukee, you certainly deserve it.
Me? I’m off to riot.
