Pulling a Merriman

In his first few years in the NBA, Karl Malone had a bad habit of performing this little arm-flailing celebration-dance-thingie after making a big play on offense (he didn't play defense back then). I used to hate it.

I've never seen the reasoning behind the celebratory antics of professional athletes after a play is ended, big-time or ordinary. After all, the only thing they've done is what's expected of them.

Watching the Rams-Chargers game today, I noticed that Shawne Merriman is an excitable fellow. He had a good day, tying a career high in sacks.

More power to him, but we really didn't need a sack-dance after his tackle of a Ram RB on a quick out; he gets paid to make that play. I think tomorrow, in honor of the "Athlete Warrior", I may pull a Merriman.

After sending a couple of successful faxes I may jump up and do a dance on the desk. After all, I'll have just done my job!
