Ram Dance, prematurely brought to you by Mario Haggan

Rams linebacker was in the mood for celebrating after a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. His execution was perfect. His timing... not so much.

St. Louis Rams linebacker Mario Haggan loves getting his groove on when things are going well. After the Rams scored a touchdown with 1:09 left in the game to go up 24-21, Haggan was pretty sure the Rams would hold, and the rhythm just could not be held back any longer. From his body burst forth a cathartic and powerful movement: RAM DANCE.


This dance has nothing to do specifically with the Rams, other than the uniform of the performer. And, as it turns out, the San Francisco 49ers would drive nearly the length of the field in that final minute and David Akers would kick a 33-yard field goal to send the game to overtime.

It doesn't matter, because Ram Dance will stick. It will live on in history, being performed in St. Louis, at Colorado State University and Fordham University, because RAM DANCE.
