The Los Angeles Dodgers celebrating their National League West division title in the Arizona Diamondbacks' pool has rubbed a slew of players, coaches, media and, now, elected officials the wrong way.

Arizona Senator John McCain called the Dodgers' division-clinching celebration a "no-class act by a bunch of overpaid, immature, arrogant, spoiled brats." The Dodgers clinched the division title on Thursday night in Arizona by defeating the Diamondbacks 7-6, and afterward a handful of Dodgers players proceeded to take a dip in the pool in right field. (See video below)

Diamondbacks infielder Willie Bloomquist said he would "expect them to act with a little more class than they did." Bloomquist added that he would "doubt the New York Yankees would do something like that."
