DH Video Select: Sweet Lou will get his money’s worth

Some things you can watch a thousand times and they just never get old.

Tell me at the beginning of this clip if it doesn’t look exactly like when Gramps Piniella stars in that Aquafina commercial.

We ponder how the whole hat kick/flip started with Gramps anyways. We remember one time in Cleveland when he was managing the Seattle Mariners, Sweet Lou kicked the hat into a strong and sudden gust of wind and the hat flew into the crowd. It looked Charlie Chaplin like, choreographed. We suppose it was then that Lou trademarked this practice.

Beyond that, if MLB 2K9 wants to score major points, make Gramps Piniella throw a custom temper tantrum, please.
