Everyone loves to celebrate when something goes their way. This is especially the case in sports, when a team hits a game winning shot or scores a clutch point. On Thanksgiving night, Ole Miss faced Mississippi State for the Egg Bowl, and there was a celebration that went wrong, but was actually really funny.
The game was extremely close, with Ole Miss down 14-21 in the final minute of the game. As Ole Miss drove down the field, they scored a touchdown with four seconds left in the game. Right after they scored, the player who scored it celebrated by pretending to be a dog and peeing on the floor. This led to Ole Miss receiving a 15 yard penalty for the game-tying extra point. As the kick went up, it missed and Ole Miss had lost 20-21! It was one of the craziest and funniest finishes I’ve ever seen. This will change how the team celebrates and it’ll change how other teams in college football and even the NFL celebrate after a touchdown. It’ll also humble the player, as I’m sure he’ll never celebrate like that again.
