In the third inning of Game 5 of the National League Championship Series at Dodger Stadium, Adrian Gonzalez hit a solo home run to give the Dodgers a 3-2 lead, but it wasn’t the home run that had us all grinning. It was Gonzalez who added a little extra to his jaunt, mimicking Mickey Mouse ears after he rounded the bases and jogged back into the dugout.
This came just two days after Adam Wainwright referred to Gonzalez’ celebrations as “Mickey Mouse” stuff (those celebrations came after Gonzalez hit a double off Wainwright in Game 3).
Did we mention Gonzalez hit another solo home run in the eighth inning? Unfortunately, Mickey Mouse ears didn’t accompany Gonzalez during his second round around the bases.
