A Solid Gold[en] Celebration

First and foremost, I would like to extend a welcome back to bad puns from the Daily Hat; you were missed. Saturday's in the fall mean one thing for me: time to watch lots and lots of college football. Every year there are lots of touchdowns scored and with that many touchdown celebrations performed. Most of the time they are boring and unoriginal, but every once and a while, we encounter a student athlete that "gets it." They understand that football is all about entertainment. Golden Tate, a Notre Dame wideout, "gets it."

During Saturday's game against MSU, Tate scored a touchdown, but he wasn't finished. He knew that a touchdown needs a super-sweet celebration and there was no way he was gonna dissapoint.
Sidebar: What is it with football players and the band? There is some secret dislike here. Stanford/ Cal anyone?
So Golden Tate gets the very first Daily Hat Award for Excellence in Punking Band Geeks. Congrats and keep it up!

One of my favorite parts of this video is how disappointed that Sparty seems with Golden's decision. He may be a meat-head, but the big green dude is a sensitive meat-head who doesn't appreciate bullies like Tate.

  1. That is awesome, and Sting (of WCW, not the Police) would definitely be proud! I also like Jimmy Clausen's super gay, creeper face at the end of the video.
