Photo of the Day: Anatomy of a Goal Scoring Celebration
Since Saturday night/Sunday morning I have seen, heard about, or read a description of Beckham's fantastic longball wonder-goal about 63 times. My man Binks (the only person I know with HDnet) sent me a text message the second it happened. It was on Sportscenter. There are 23 different videos of it on Youtube and as many newspaper articles mentioning it. It's no unlike a Janet Jackson "wardrobe malfunction"; utterly unexpected, nice to look at and impossible not to talk about.
Immediately afterward the entire Galaxy nation --players, fans, staff-- lost their collective minds in one of the most joyous, euphoric goal/victory celebrations seen in a regular season MLS game ever. Above is a snapshot of the moment at arguably it's most "looney bin"-ish that I've taken the liberty of breaking down to it's base. And if you really want to get the most out of this, but on an upbeat jazz record while looking Ruud Gullit.
