Notable sports figure of the week...

...in the 'Bout Damned Time Someone Did Something category: veteran Los Angeles Angels pitcher Jared Weaver.

The various celebratory demonstrations by professional sports figures has gotten out of hand, ridiculously so... especially the obligatory icy Gatorade baths invariably delivered during a post-game on-camera interview.

This past Friday, following his first win of the season, a complete game shutout over the division-leading Houston Astros, Weaver and the female interviewer withstood a double dousing, but when a full water bottle inexplicably followed, a death stare ensued:

Jared Weaver's death stare

Whoever flung it, it was immature, stupid and mean-spirited.

It is also a ritual I'd like to see put a stop to!

Jim Croce once sang:

"You don't tug on superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off that old lone ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim"

Probably shouldn't mess around with Jared, either.
