19. Jonathan Papelbon Grabs His Crotch
Philadelphia fans have booed everyone from first-round picks to Santa Claus, but nobody ever gave it back like Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon did in September. He heard it from hissing fans after he blew a save and gave up four ninth-inning runs in a 5-4 loss to Miami. On his way off the field, the volatile closer with a rap sheet that already includes admitting to drug abuse and warning that “Obama wants to take our guns” responded to the boos by grabbing his crotch. Pap was ejected from the game for the gesture and had to be pulled away from a heated exchange with umpire Joe West. When asked about it after the game, he told reporters, “I had to make an adjustment” and a full frontal view of the incident made the backpage of the Philadelphia Daily News the next day.
