So celebrating in sports, has it gone to far? is it pointless?
I'm making this inspired by something I saw on the halftime show, of the Sunday Night Football game last night
alright so what is an acceptable celebration? personally to me, a good celebration, should be quick, legal, non attention seeking, and maybe even original sometime.
but here's what I hate, I hate guys, who come in to a sport, and just seek attention, by doing celebrations, that are obviously being done, just so they can get their 15 minutes of fame on sports center, like this one for instance
Tony Scheffler here, is obviously, an unheard of player for the most part, so the only reason, it makes sense that he would do this for, is he wanted people to notice him, he wanted to get noticed by the people of sports Center, and have his 25 minutes of fame, and now, what happens because of this? now when youtube his name, the first thing that comes up will be this exact Touchdown catch
now what about this one?
yes, the world wide phenomenon of "Tebowing" this one got A LOT, of speculation on it, but personally, I actually think this is a great Celebration, quick, original, and legal, yes it did get noticed, a lot, but I have no problem with this one
now let me go back to some people who were upset about this particular celebration, if you didn't know, Tim Tebow, is very well known, for being a strong christian, leading to this celebration, which I don't mind at all, and Tebow himself didn't even mind it, so I think this is an okay celebration
now lets move on to another one
now here you'll see Stevie Johnson, mimicking Plaxico Burress, (and in case you don't understand the celebration, Plaxico Burress was arrested a few years ago, for being at a night club with a gun in his position, and "accidentally" shot himself in the leg) but back to the celebration, I absolutely hate this one, not only is this illegal, but it's attention seeking, and honestly, annoying, and not only that, but because this was illegal, it drew a flag, which forced the bills to kickoff from the 20, rather than the 35, and in all honesty, this play may have costed the bills that game, as following that, the Jets, went down the field and scored before half time, which may not have happened, had Stevie Johnson, not done this
not to mention.... this isn't the first time Stevie Johnson has costed, the Bills a game
Just thought I'd throw that in there, while I can still add 1 more vid
anyway, what is your take on these celebrations? what is a good celebration in your eyes? and what isn't?
