Chocolate celebration surprisingly easy to clean
ST. PETERSBURG -- In a new twist, B.J. Upton received a pie in the face after his game-winning blast Tuesday night, only the pie wasn't comprised of the traditional shaving cream, rather chocolate whipped cream.

To say Upton's uniform ended up a chocolate mess would be an understatement. After the game, Rays manager Joe Maddon made a comment to the effect that Rays clubhouse manager Chris Westmoreland would rank as the best in the business if he managed to get the chocolate stains out of Upton's uniform.

No problem. Westmoreland handed off the uniform to clubhouse attendant Ryan Riddle, who simply turned on a hose to get the job done.

"Came right off," Riddle said. "I was surprised. When I first saw it I thought we might be ordering a uniform real quick."

Maddon wasn't buying it.

"How do we know it was the same jersey," Maddon teased. "We need to have these jerseys marked ahead of time to prove if it's the real jersey. ... I need a little more proof than just, 'Here's a white jersey.'"
