Maybe, but I love fun, and thought that was very fun. So I guess it brings joy to all.

We all know college baseball is like some kind of cruel punishment from the final circle of Hell, but this guy's bat flip game is truly on point:

Not a flip, but I think this is still the right thread.

Bat flipping is contagious with Miami

what is it about college baseball that makes the entire team crowd the home plate after every run scored?

I only ever see it done after game ending HR's or HR's that put the team ahead late in the game or something like that. These guys are just douches though and that's why the benches cleared.

College softball teams celebrate every run like they won the World Series. It's annoying
