The 5 Victory Celebrations I Would Want to Participate In
With the spring and summer come many of sports championship games/series.
I have always thought the celebrations would be one of the coolest experiences to participate in, but seeing as a very small percentage actually get to celebrate these monumental wins, I figured I would make a list of my top 5 that I would want to be a part of one day.
No. 5: Olympic Gold Medal
Okay, so this isn't as flashy of a celebration as certain other sports, but to be on top of a podium with a gold medal around your neck and your country's national anthem playing would be so cool to be a part of.
No. 4: Cutting Down the Nets
Just imagine, you won your sixth game in a row. You climb that ladder and cut down a piece of the net after a hard fought game.
Having that net around your neck as you are handed the championship trophy is just one of the greatest moments in college sports.
No. 3: College World Series Dogpile
Maybe this is my southern bias talking, but I just think that the College World Series has a better celebration than the Final Four.
I hate when teams dog pile in the regional or super regional round, because you still have games to play and its possible some one (like your pitcher) could get hurt at the bottom of that thing.
After you win it all, then you can do what you want because it's the offseason.
No. 2: Kissing the Bricks
And here I am talking about the Indy 500, the NASCAR race at Indy is nice, but this is "the race" for the IndyCar Series.
To win this, so much is not in the driver's hands (pit stops, crashes) so to win is a real accomplishment.
No.1: Lifting the Stanley Cup
The Cup weighs about 30 pounds, and the players are exhausted, but it doesn't matter.
They just won one of the most iconic trophies in the world. After the initial chaos of piling around your goaltender, you then shake hands with the team you just beat.
Only then is the Stanley Cup brought out and pass around, first to the captain, followed by the rest of the team. To get to hoist the Cup above your head after a series win would be the greatest celebration I could think of.
