The RC Times (not Royal Crown) is reporting that Ickey Woods is annoyed over the No Fun League's insistence on penalizing the touchdown celebrations that we here at KSK love to no end. Ickey contends that his famous Ickey Shuffle would probably be subject to constant penalties if he were to perform it these days. I cannot think of a more blatant way for Paul Tags to suck the pure joy and exuberance out of football.
Like Ickey, I am no proponent of obnoxious self-centered antics (i.e. Joe Horn) but I fail to see what is so wrong with an inspired dance move or a truly transplendant team celebration like the Fun Bunch. Such rejoicing is one of the main reasons that we have created this blog; if it weren't for guys like Chad Johnson the NFL would be about as funny as a dead puppy (not pictured).
Fortunately the football world is filled with brave men who are willing to bite the bullet and pay the fine in order to keep us all in a perpetual state of childish giggles. Even more impressive is the story Ickey tells about the notoriously frugal Brown family, "I had some fines come my way, but the owner said his wife liked it,'' Woods said.”Since she enjoyed seeing it, he said whenever I score I could do it, don't worry about the fine.'' See, even the ladies love watching grown men shimmy.
Just so you know, we here at KSK will be keeping constant tabs on all the daring celebrations of all the funniest players the NFL has left. We plan to incorporate a complex scoring system (no French judges!) and reward each week’s winner by offering to pay his fine (editor’s note: we will not pay anybody's fines).
Much love to the RC Times for bringing Ickey back into our lives.
Until next time, keep dancing.
