The Seattle Seahawks are looking sharp early on in Thursday night's game against the Arizona Cardinals. So sharp in fact that when Golden Tate thought he was scoring a nice, long touchdown to put the team up 21-0 he thought he'd give the cameras a little something special.
If only that pesky penalty on one of his teammates hadn't made it all for nothing...
I'm glad he wasn't called for it. The focus on celebrations is pretty stupid; talk about harmless fun. Come to think of it--the refs seem to be a lot more relaxed about it than they were in the preseason. Did the league decide this was not something they needed to focus on and I missed the memo?
Whatever the state of celebrations in the NFL is this was a unique one that was all for nothing.
