Manny Ramirez has dropped all pretense of hustling out of the box, choosing instead to admire his home runs from home plate -- even when they hit the top of the wall and bounce back (see: ALCS Game 5). Now the diminutive Dustin Pedroia has gotten into the act, flipping his bat Bret Boone-style after belting a home run in Game 7 of the ALCS. Then there are the wild celebrations and wacky dances (see: Jonathan Papelbon). If the showboating isn't reason enough to dislike these guys, there is always Curt Schilling, who is just as outspoken and opinionated as he is talented. What follows is a collection of some of the most infamous teams in sports -- teams that were so good and yet so obnoxious that fans either loved them or loved to hate them.
