Michael Thomas’s Cell Phone Celebration Was Cool, No Matter What The Announcers Said
It was funny! It was out of the blue. It was silly and genuine and clever and one of the best TD celebrations of the year. The Times-Picayune got awesome photos of it. Thomas told reporters he’d bought two flip phones at a “hole-in-the-wall liquor store” and put them in either end zone. (Horn had made the mistake of stashing a phone in only one end zone, and had to wait weeks because he kept scoring in the wrong one.) Thomas said he didn’t want to hurt his team with the celebration, which was a 15-yard penalty, and wouldn’t have done it until the fourth quarter. It was an instant classic touchdown celebration that iced one of the best football games of the season.
