I do infact love the creativity that went into some of the stuff that
happened with the TD celebrations.
The creative and FUN premeditations that took place were hilarious.
I LOVED the Sharpie TD. At this moment I am having trouble thinking of
some of the others, but there were some great ones. This would be one
reason that I would like to see Chad Johnson in a Pats Uni.

signature moves that just don't do it for me.

moments of excitement. In 1996 our secondary started this foolish
interception dance that I absolutely hated. I disrespected the
disrespect I felt in the Mile High Salute but the initial moment of
excitement in a spontaneous celebration always showed me the fun they
were having in the game. Never at your opponent like Keyshawn and his
throat slicing but plenty of the nice pass-nice catch-nice block team
