Oldie but goodie

AFC Bournemouth are one of two clubs, along with Luton Town, that started with negative points in League Two this season. When the penalties were meted out, I opined that neither club would survive their penalties. We've been keeping an eye on Luton, but what of the other club? Well, they are within shouting distance of 22nd placed Barnet, with 15 points while Barnet have 22.

That's not what this post is about, however. This post is about the greatest goal celebration of the season.

Back on November 21, Bournemouth traveled to Grimsby. It was a pretty necessary game for the visitors, as Grimsby is one of the catchable teams ahead of them. A real relegation six pointer. Bournemouth powered into the lead in the sixth minute behind Lee Bradbury. What follows is pure awesomeness.

For those counting, he was seven for seven on takedowns. What amuses me is that the referee was standing right there and seemingly said nary a word. I do believe that if taking off your shirt in celebration is a yellow, then so is this. Oh, and as for the game, it ended in a 3-3 draw. You know, if you care about that sort of thing.

I think it adds to the amazingness of the celebration that the announcer decides to pretend like it's not happening.

Would love to see this from any of the menagerie of players recently charged with assault.

Or Bellamy at any time. Barton too. And Gerrard.

Screw it, I echo Georger.
