not that it matters, but did anybody see the Saints v. Giants game on Sunday.
Joe Horn (WR) scored a touchdown and had a cell phone stashed under the goal post padding. he took it out and pretended to make a phone call while celebrating his touchdown.
I thought it was classless and pathetic. Maybe if he had some TMA training as a kid he would have acted with more respect for himself and his competition. ha ha...
there i feel better........

NEW YORK - The NFL is considering whether to discipline Saints receiver Joe Horn for making a choreographed cell phone call in the end zone to celebrate a touchdown.
League spokesman Greg Aiello said Monday that he doesn't expect a decision until later in the week. Horn could be fined or suspended.
New Orleans coach Jim Haslett said he would not discipline Horn. "The league will do that," Haslett said.
After catching the second of four touchdown passes in a 45-7 victory over the New York Giants (news), Horn was handed a phone by teammate Michael Lewis, who pulled it out from under the padding used to protect the goalpost. Horn was still wearing his helmet when he punched in numbers, put the phone to the earhole and spoke into it for a few seconds.
"Would I take it back? No, no. I knew exactly what I was doing," Horn said after the game. "And I understand — I'm quite sure that I'll be fined."
The Saints drew a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for the stunt.
"The thing that bothered me more than anything is he put himself before the football team," Haslett said. "To me that's selfish. He's selfish. He shouldn't do that."
After San Francisco's Terrell Owens pulled a pen out of his sock and autographed a football after scoring a touchdown in a game, NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue sent a memo to all teams warning that other such stunts would be punished.

He was tryin to be like Terrell Owens, and get into controversy so that he could get his name out there. If Terrell Owens wasnt such a beast with his athletic performances, u'd still know him from his sharpie and pom pom celebrations, and thats wat is motivating other players to try and promote themselves.
