Yeah, Take That, You Monstrous Goal Receptacle

We've been remiss in not mentioning the rather astounding celebration from UC Santa Barbara fans after their team upset UCLA to win its first-ever soccer national championship last weekend. In a rarity for American soccer fans, they went kind of nuts, swiping a goal post and throwing it into the ocean.

Strange thing about this: The championship game was held in St. Louis, which has no ocean. So, essentially, they took a goal post from a random stadium, after watching the win, and carted it around down before making sure it slept with the fishes (and syringes). That's devotion, we tell you; that ESPN-U really is bringing the world together.
