Do you smell what the Jacksonville Sharks are cookin’?
The Arena Football League team punctuated Saturday night’s blowout win over the Tampa Bay Storm with a post-touchdown celebration that included the “People’s Elbow,” a wrestling move made famous by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
The Rock showed his approval of the celebration via Twitter:[tweet https://twitter.com/TheRock/status/625146773997289474 align=”center”] [tweet https://twitter.com/TheRock/status/625175886791352320 align=”center”] [tweet https://twitter.com/TheRock/status/625446148879335428 align=”center”]
Of course, this move would not be well-received in the NFL, aka the No Fun League, because team celebrations such as this are against the rules. It’d be a guaranteed penalty for excessive celebration.
But that’s one of the great things about the Arena Football League. The celebrations are fantastic and won’t draw the ire of officials. After all, it’s about entertainment.
