Usually Arena Football doesn’t make the mainstream news. This. This, is an exception, and exceptional at that.
We’ve seen NFL touchdown celebrations witch hunted by Roger Goodell and we are left with boring single celebrations worthy of nothing.
Saturday night, the Jacksonville Sharks were celebrating a 63-16 rout of the Tampa Bay Storm, which earned them a spot in the playoffs. The highlight of the game though, was Sharks wideout Tiger Jones dropped The Rock’s famous People’s Elbow on lineman Moqut Ruffins after a touchdown, which is the best celebration in recent history. Sources say if this was in the NFL, he would have received a 10-game suspension plus a hefty fine, none the less, the rock would be proud.
