Everybody is praising the Joe Horn reprise by Michael Thomas of the Saints.
But for my money, THIS was the best TD Celebration yesterday. Probably the best one of the season.
Benjamin Watson has had quite the first half for the New Orleans Saints in Sunday’s duel with the Los Angeles Rams.
The veteran tight end pulled in 3 receptions for 62 yards and a touchdown, but it was his touchdown celebration that has people talking.
After the score, Watson tucked the football into his jersey, imitating a pregnant belly, then held up seven fingers. Watson later confirmed the celebration was his family’s official announcement that they’re expecting twins.
“I always put the five up for my kids. So we’re adding two more” Watson said. “As I did it, I saw my wife in the stands and I kinda pointed at her and waved. She was OK with my announcing. Now everybody knows we’re about to be the Watson 7.”
NBC’s Sunday Night Football account was quick to speculate on the meaning of the gesture, tweeting out, “Ben Watson may have just made the greatest pregnancy announcement in history.”
