Best Scoring Celebration Ever?

You soccer fans out there probably have heard about the hilarious/despicable story of Liverpool forward Craig Bellamy allegedly attacking teammate John Arne Riise with a golf club in Riise's hotel room after Riise declined to participate in a karaoke competition while out at a bar in Portugal. This incident took place during what was supposed to be a team bonding trip before Liverpool's huge match with Barcelona in the first leg of the first knockout round of the Champions League tournament. Bellamy has quite a history of altercations, which I will get into later.

The big fucking news of the day is that BOTH Bellamy and Riise scored in the match between the previous two Champions League winners (felt too weird typing champions right there). Liverpool defeated Barcelona 2-1.

The BIGGER news: Bellamy celebrated his goal by taking an imaginary golf swing!

I have heard of some badass celebrations, including a player getting down on his knees and pretending to snort the goal line, but this might be even better. It turns out that in England you could have bet that Bellamy would score and do this celebration and gotten 100-1. This, ladies and gentleman, makes me proud to be a human.

2006: Cleared of charges of assaulting two women at a nightclub.
Sent threatening text messages to Newcastle Captain Alan Shearer
2004: Threw chair at his team (Newcastle) assistant manager
2003: Charged for three racism offenses from a night out in Cardiff, Wales. He was fined. Charges of racially aggregated abuse were dropped

    The snorting the line incident involved another Liverpool player, Robbie Fowler, in his first stint with the club. He was responding to chats from rival Everton fans that he was a coke head. Apparently the appropriate reponse was to snot the touch line. Also a classic response. I think he was fined like $20,000

    I'd also like to nominate Alesko Eskadairian of DC United for awesome goal celebration. Playing the newly renamed New York Red Bulls, he scored on them, had a teammate toss him a can of Red Bull, take a drink, and spit it all over the field. He act cost $5,000. nice.

    Thanks Nick and Dan for the line snorting story detail...great stuff.

    I remember the red bull celebration, which I really enjoyed but can't quite put on par with these others.
