VIDEO: Dodgers earned party pass

A few members of the Los Angeles Dodgers went partying at a Miami nightclub with LeBron James on Sunday night and of course there was a big deal made about it. Well Monday they were shut out by the Miami Marlins 5-0 and now people are even making a bigger deal about their partying. I’m sorry but I find that to be a bunch of bullshit and part owner Magic Johnson agrees. TMZ Sports caught up with him and he answered questions about the partying.

“We just gotta come back and win tomorrow,” Johnson said … “They’re grown men. They can hang out. They can party. I mean … they’re grown.”

He added, “We’re having a great season … so, one game is not gonna hurt us.”

Johnson said there will absolutely be NO disciplinary action taken against the players — who dropped more than $20k at LIV nightclub early Monday morning while partying with LeBron James. (TMZ Sports)

I’m glad to hear an owner talk like this as he knows his players need to relax and unwind once in a while. Magic as a former professional athlete himself knows this.

What I don’t understand is why fans and media make a big deal out of this. Don’t we all get days off and do our best to enjoy them?

Some of us wind up going out to the bar and enjoying a great night or two here or there. Most of us get two days off a week, these guys play 15-20 days in a row without a day off. They may get paid well for it but just like us all they deserve that chance to unwind even if it does hurt their play once in a while.

Remember NFL season is coming up and most of us will be out enjoying the town on Monday’s watching the Monday Night Football game and we all know our work is affected by it the next day. So who are we to judge?
