We "Celebrate" So You Don't Have To

The Miami Heat held their victory celebration today, and it was hard earned...

It was also subtle enough to make you wonder if Michael Bay, Liberace and Emperor Nero decided to go into business together as party planners.

Fans who attended the team's victory parade had to deal with some (pun not intended) heat; so, thankfully, there was a mascot on hand to cool things down.

Wondering what that thing is? Well, according to the DJ who warmed up the crowd today, "It's Burnie, baaaaaaby! Now somebody scream!!!!"

Here's another photo of Burnie, because you have to see his silver Nike high tops...err, high heels.

After Burnie's appearance, a curtain dropped to reveal the the Heat players striking poses reminiscent of American Gladiators.

Each player was introduced individually. Dwyane Wade and LeBron James were sporting celebration sticks.

Now there is no doubt that the Heat have earned the right to party. They should be happy their work paid off. They are under no obligation to be subtle about it. 

After all, the rulebook never states you have to act like you've been there before, even if you have been there before.

However, these are the same guys who praised the Spurs for running a classy, first-rate organization.

And can you imagine San Antonio celebrating like this?
