Congratulations to the A’s, who clinched a postseason berth with a 4-3 win over the Texas Rangers. As the A’s celebrated, the Rangers sat in their hotel rooms, wondering if their season will fully unravel in Oakland.
Meanwhile, certain A’s players walked around the clubhouse, mimicking Hugh Hefner.
The MLB-licensed bathrobe isn’t a brand new fashion statement, but tonight was the first time I’ve seen players wearing them during a clubhouse celebration. Don’t be shocked when you see all the other playoff teams rocking these things before the end of the season, because everyone’s inner Lebowski is going to want one after watching the Athletics smoke cigars and crushing Bud Lights … literally.
I think the A’s just showed us the simplest, most comfortable Halloween costume ever — and you thought dressing up as Jim Harbaugh would be easy.
