In 1999, Brandi Chastain, an American soccer player, was playing in the World Cup when she scored the winning goal on a penalty kick. You remember, right?
She spontaneously ripped her shirt off and sank down to her knees with her fists clenched in the air. It’s a pretty iconic photograph. I’d put a pic of it here but, hello, copyright violations.
When asked about why she took her shirt off she said ‘momentary insanity – no more, no less.’
Celebration causes even the sanest people to go momentarily insane, I guess.
Y’all…people do crazy things, just like Adele says. Except without the y’all because that girl’s from England.
I’ve enjoyed watching the celebration videos that have been coming across the web from the Iron Bowl Saturday night. Grandma’s crying, kids being tackled by their parents, preachers behaving like screaming toddlers, trees getting rolled all across the country…
Meanwhile, in Arizona, when the go ahead touchdown came….
Like I said…people do crazy things.
Although, I can assure you, if I’d have had a pool, you better believe I would have jumped in it.
Correct me if I’m wrong but it’s cold in Arizona now, right?
Hardly an expert on the weather in the southwest but I did go skiing in New Mexico in December one year and it was pretty much the coldest I’ve ever been.
So this business…
Totally worth it.
What’s the best celebration video/picture/story you’ve seen?
Thanks to my friend Jennifer, an Auburn grad, for letting me use this picture of her husband.
