I'm not even sure this is hyperbole.

Mad Dog is 7-for-7 in save opportunities this year (ahem, contract year), and approaches 2008 World Series Madson in all of them. Look at this post-win reaction. By the time Madson finished striking out the side, small children in attendance were asked to retreat to the concourse. It was like that scene in Old School where Will Ferrell shot himself with a tranquilizer gun

Madson's reaction seems to come from sheer competitiveness, whereas Lidges' reaction comes from relief. Big difference there. More, please.

UPDATE: Video spliced with Old School scene is after the jump (caution: T-Mac yell).
