Please, we're begging you, do not throw beer on Cal Ripken Jr.

Memo to Yankees fans (or to, perhaps, a wildly celebratory Rangers fan):

We're very sorry about the dynasty teetering on the edge of disaster after giving up five-plus runs in three straight playoff losses for the first time in the history of pinstripeyness. However, if any of your adult beverage ends up on Mr. Cal Ripken Jr., whether accidentally or in a move of jackassedness, you must do the following immediately: apologize profusely, offer to pay for the dry cleaning and weep.

Come on, this is Cal Ripken Jr. we're talking about.
