Joseph Fauria scores 3 TDs and celebrates all over


Detroit Lions tight end Joseph Fauria got a lot of attention for his touchdown celebrations earlier in the year. Fauria rewarded his fans with three touchdowns and three celebrations off of three catches.

I don’t think any of them match the touchdown celebration when he acted out N’Sync’s “Bye, Bye, Bye” dance. But hey, you can’t always top your work. Fauria also probably wasn’t thinking, you know I need three dances prepared in case I score three touchdowns today.

Personally my favorites were either celebration number one or number two. They aren’t that different necessarily, but I think they’re more original than the dunk celebration.

This last one has been referred to the ‘cabbage patch dance.’ I’m unfamiliar with this dance, so I can’t verify that.
