Marion Barber’s Failed Backflip Attempt

I LOVE excessive celebration. I adore it when players bust out the Dougie or do some other silly little dance in the endzone and I think it’s ridiculous that there is a rule against it. Are you kidding me?! You consider a 20 second jig after a touchdown to be “excessive” in a sport where the players make MORE THAN THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES? The entire GAME is excessive, so why not let us be entertained by a 300 pound guy brushin’ his shoulders off?

Anyhow, this video of Chicago Bear Marion Barber attempting a celebratory backflip after scoring a 3-yard touchdown this weekend is my favorite thing of the week thus far, because it combines two awesome things: excessive celebration, and crippling embarrassment. CHA-CHING.
