There's not much worth celebrating in Detroit these days. The town's a financially ravaged husk whose most famous son often looks as lost as a toddler in a train station. The Lions are the Lions, a team that laughingstocks point to and say, "at least we're not them."

Until Sunday. On Sunday, the Lions withstood a first-play Adrian Peterson 78-yard touchdown run to defeat Minnesota 34-24. That's impressive enough in itself, but what really made this game was the way two undrafted Lions players celebrated their touchdowns.

Have fun, Detroit. We'll let it slide for now how ridiculous you looked in celebration.
