Girardi risks his life helping accident victim after the series celebration: Yankees manager Joe Girardi not only won the World Series, but he also helped an accident victim on his way home from the game.

I'm no fan of the Yanks but for what Girardi did to help this woman was a terrific thing to do. Damn him!!

Charlie Manuel would have waited much longer to pull that woman out after she got into trouble.

Good one rcade. Very snarky! Well played.

Dammit, rcade beat me to it...

Instant classic, rcade. Watch the language, 'Saber.

Girardi was "jumping up and down, trying to flag me down."

Was probably trying to bring in a relief driver.

Thanks for the laugh rcade. My thoughts exactly.

Just thinking outloud. Girardi just won the WS. I assume celebrations abound. Never won myself, but I am assuming. Wouldn't it be reasonably likely that Girardi has a few in celebration with his team? I wouldn't expect him to be behind the wheel. I agree he did the right thing in helping the victim.

Not everyone has to drink alcohol to celebrate.

To quote the article:

"Police were in the area conducting a driving while intoxicated checkpoint on the parkway. Girardi had passed that checkpoint about 15 minutes earlier."

bperk is right, not everyone has to drink alcohol to celebrate. I, myself, haven't touched any alcoholic beverage in over 3.5 years. And no, I may not recovering or have any trauma that stops me. I am a born again Christian and don't feel the need to drink (and spare me the born-again/trauma joke that is inevitably jumping around in someone's head right now)

He probably did have quite a few...poured on his head, sprayed in his face, drained down his back.

You don't see the guys drinking that much of the champagne. The bottles are usually wielded like super-soakers instead.

Why do you want to steal my joy?
