Rutgers center Mike Maietti celebrates touchdown, by punching his teammate Quarterback Art Sitkowski in face . That’s right Rutgers center Mike Maietti was so fired up about the touchdown, he punched QB Art Sitkowski right in the face. Luckily for Art, he still had his helmet on. The force of the punch rocked his whole body back though.
Some people wonder if celebrating can be dangerous. Think of when an entire team of players, jumps on one person after they make a game winner. Or when someone tries to bump someone in air, leading to a disastrous fall. Most people never think about being punched in the face to celebrate scoring.
However if you think back, this type of thing did almost happen with Vince Carter and Kevin Garnett at the Olympics. Pay attention to Vince Carter’s Celebration swing????
