Tommy Lasorda, that family patriarch that everyone smiles at and respects publicly, but who in all honesty kind of creeps out and/or annoys everyone a lot of the time, took to Twitter following the Dodgers clinching the N.L. West last night:
If you don’t cheer for the Dodgers, there’s a good chance you may not get into Heaven. Especially after this great win tonight.

I suppose it’s just a matter of semantics and phrasing. If he had tweeted “Giants fans can go to hell!” I probably would’ve been approvingly retweeting this as edgy smack talk.
