$5000 for a Nap
Terrell Owens was fined $5000 by the NFL for "napping" in the end zone. The new rule states that the ball cannot be used as a prop for celebration after a touchdown. I don't remember the exact Giants player that did this tonight, but a guy put the ball under his jersey next to his stomach after scoring a TD and rubbed the ball as it laid on his belly under the jersey. It was an homage to his wife that he had just recently found out is pregnant. Is he going to be fined $5000 also? I hope not. I like football because it is entertaining, not because some assholes define what is acceptable celebration behavior after a TD.
