Chiefs Safety Husain Abdullah Flagged For Muslim-Prayer TD Celebration

Kansas City Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct Monday night when he went to his knees in prayer to celebrate a Tom Brady pick-six. Abdullah—a devout Muslim who sat out the 2012-13 season to make Hajj, the Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca—shouldn't have been penalized. » 9/30/14 12:03am 9/30/14 12:03am

Matt Simms Celebrates Touchdown Pass With Salsa Dancing

Fans who tuned into tonight's Big Apple Derby between the Giants and Jets might have expected to see some salsa dancing from G-Men receiver Victor Cruz.

Dodgers Catcher Hurts Himself Celebrating Josh Beckett's No-Hitter

We can forgive Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis's exuberance at witnessing the greatness that was Josh Beckett's gem of a game yesterday. Not that the backup had anything to do with it, but still. What we can't forgive is the clumsiness that saw him stepping on a catcher's mask, tweaking his ankle, and ending up on the… » 5/26/14 8:35pm 5/26/14 8:35pm

But none of those moves are quite like what JaVale McGee dropped on us last night after hitting a buzzer-beating three (his first of the… » 1/02/13 9:40am 1/02/13 9:40am

Water Polo Coach Celebrates Gold By Jumping Into The Pool, Lands Crotch…

The US women's water polo team took gold today, stomping out Spain 8-5. When the game ended, the team and coaching staff linked arms and took a ceremonious plunge into the pool.

This Italian Fencer's Celebration After Winning A Semifinal Is Fantastic

Diego Occhiuzzi's chances at a sabre medal in London were slim—the Italian fencer came into the competition as a 14 seed. So we don't blame him for this awesome freakout after his semifinal win over Romanian Rares Dumitrescu. In a bracketed event, after all, winning a semi is the only way to guarantee a medal (though… » 7/29/12 5:45pm 7/29/12 5:45pm

Oklahoma's Steven Pledger Prematurely Celebrated His Game-Tying…

It can't feel good to lose, especially in front of an empty arena. But it takes a certain amount of hubris—beyond the amount we're comfortable with, at least—to celebrate a shot before it goes in, especially if that shot wouldn't even win you the game. Then it doesn't go in, and all the sympathy we would have shown… » 2/06/12 10:13pm 2/06/12 10:13pm
