Joc Pederson went full Kirk Cousins while celebrating his big three-run homer in Game 4

In Week 7 of the 2015 NFL season, Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins turned a 24-0 deficit against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers into a 31-30 win -- the largest comeback in franchise history. As he was walking back to the locker room after the game, he spotted some TV cameras, and in his excitement he turned and shouted three simple words: "You like that!" 
Just like that, a meme was born. The original Vine was viewed millions of times. Mashups were made. Even the local news got involved:

Flash forward to Saturday night, with the Dodgers leading the Astros 3-1 in the top of the ninth of World Series Game 4. L.A. was looking for some insurance, and Joc Pederson provided it, hammering a three-run homer to right to put the game out of reach and even the Fall Classic at 2-2. And as Joc touched home and headed back to the Dodgers' dugout, he could think of only one appropriate celebration:

Pederson himself, however, had no idea. "Did I?" he asked's Ken Gurnick. "I don't know, like I said, I just kind of blacked out there." It's safe to say that the city of Los Angeles does, indeed, like that.
