The Los Angeles Dodgers unsurprisingly have a number of celebrity fans, and they tabbed two of them to wave team flags on top of the dugouts ahead of Game 7 of the World Series Wednesday. Ken Jeong was to wave a flag from atop the Houston Astros’ dugout, while Rob Lowe was to wave one from the home dugout. But the Astros took some exception here, with shortstop Carlos Correa splashing Jeong with a cup full of water:

Clearly, it was that water splash that motivated the Astros to a 5-1 win, to say nothing of Correa’s successful postgame proposal. And that seems like a fitting splash for Ben Chang, to say nothing of Mr. Chow or Dr. Ken Park. But why didn’t the Astros go after Lowe as well? One theory is that the Dodgers’ dugout was out of splash range, but a much more fun one is that they didn’t want to anger The Grinder.
