Enough already

I'm sick of the self-promoting professional athlete -- you know, the one who dances around like an idiot after doing something routine.

In other words, guys like Lance Moore of the New Orleans Saints.

Sunday night, Moore recovered an onside kick with 6:39 to play. Instead of handing the ball to the referee, running off the field and high-fiving a teammate, Moore got up and did a little shimmy. Ridiculous.

And another trend we can thank ESPN for. Look, heat of the moment reactions (see Ramirez, Manny ALDS Game 2) are one thing and I love Chad Johnson's post-touchdown celebrations, but dancing after recovering an onside kick?

In the words of our own Roy Lang III, come on.
