Dee Gordon and the Miami Marlins formally announced a five-year contract worth $50 million on Monday. It is Gordon's first massive contract after earning a total of $4.6 million during the first five years of his MLB career. Part of Gordon's new mega-deal was a $1.5 million signing bonus. So, how did he go out and celebrate?
With chicken McNuggets at McDonalds.
At 7 p.m. ET, Gordon tweeted out a thank you to the Marlins and fans:
Glad I can finally get some sleep! Thank you everyone for your kind words and congratulations...and thank you @Marlins for this blessing. ⚡️— Dee Gordon (@FlashGJr) January 19, 2016
A little more than an hour later, Gordon was at McDonalds tweeting about McNugget sauce:
Why at @McDonalds they ask you what kindof sauce you want? Everyone want sweet and sour sauce lol— Dee Gordon (@FlashGJr) January 19, 2016
Right! I got 10 nuggets and FRIES!!!! https://t.co/lricJ53smR— Dee Gordon (@FlashGJr) January 19, 2016
That is certainly one way to celebrate. And for Gordon it might be the best way possible, as he is a noted McDonalds fan.
And like any seasoned McNuggets eater, Gordon also has strong opinions on sauce.

$50 million will buy a whole lot of McNuggets. McDonalds in Miami better stock up on sour sauce.
