Celebrations are a pretty controversial topic in sports. I wish there were less of them, actually. While watching a football game the other week, a defensive lineman made a tackle for a loss on 2nd Down and went about his celebration. On the next play (3rd and long), the defense gave up the first down. I thought that if he was going to celebrate, he should have waited until they finished the job!!
Exactly. I can understand the adrenalin rush that players have during the game. That, and the emotionalism, has been around a long time. Growing up I watched some of the biggest hitters in the game. From Butkus to Lambert. They did their job and didn't need to celebrate and call attention to themselves with these "It's all about me!" antics.
