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.

Next up, Joe Fauria doing ... well, this little embarrassment:

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