Good for you, Casey Blake—you hit a home run to tie the game 5-5 on May 10, 2009, off one of the National League's better closers.

But mocking him was extremely classless.

Everyone learned the meaning of Brian Wilson's post-game gesture when he told Andrew Baggerly of the San Jose Mercury News that he adapted the slogan for an ultimate fighting clothing company to reflect his own personal beliefs and to honor his dad.

There is absolutely no disrespect intended because the man dedicated the gesture to his deceased father and to Jesus Christ.

"It shows no disrespect toward anybody. It's all positive praise. It's not for showboating. It's not to start an epidemic," Wilson said in the San Jose Mercury News interview.

"It's just me getting a quick message out to the world and to Christ and that's it. I just thought, what more perfect time to display my faith than at the end of a game?"

Benches may clear the next time the San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers meet.
