Willie Bloomquist dresses like leprechaun after lost bet with AJ Pollock

Willie-Bloomquist-leprechaun

Arizona Diamondbacks teammates Willie Bloomquist and AJ Pollock placed a friendly wager over the weekend. Bloomquist played his college ball at Arizona State. Pollock played his at Notre Dame. You can probably see where this is headed.

On Saturday, Notre Dame beat No. 22 Arizona State in an exciting 37-24 game at a neutral site in Texas. While I had absolutely no rooting interest in the game, I can now safely say I am glad the Irish won. I doubt whatever Arizona State costume Pollock would have had to dress up in would have been funnier than seeing Bloomquist in the leprechaun outfit.

“A bet is a bet!” Bloomquist tweeted along with the photo you see above. “I am immediately going to the rifle range decked out in camo and face paint after this!”

Whatever makes you feel better, bro. Camo and face paint aren’t going to erase this image.

Willie Bloomquist: Dodgers pool celebration ‘disrespectful and classless’

The Arizona Diamondbacks asked the Los Angeles Dodgers not to celebrate on the field if they clinched the NL West title, so the Dodgers decided to partially obey the request and headed to the swimming pool instead.

The Dodgers beat the D-backs 7-6 on Thursday to clinch the division, and they started their celebration inside the clubhouse. After a few minutes, about half the team’s players ran onto the field, hopped the right-center fence and plunged into the swimming pool.

D-backs infielder Willie Bloomquist was not happy with the Dodgers for their pool celebration.

“I think it’s tired and disrespectful,” Bloomquist said, via ArizonaSports.com. “It’s surprising because they have a lot of veteran guys on that team that I thought were classier than that.”

“But there’s a fine line between going overboard at someone else’s place and doing that, I think,” he added. “But what are we going to do about it? There’s not much we can do about it now. They’ve clinched the division this year, but if that’s how they’re going to act and be classless, that’s their gig, that’s their clubhouse. I just think it’s disrespectful and classless.”

D-backs president Derrick Hall took the high road.
