Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz was not a fan of tight end Joseph Fauria’s touchdown dance in the season opener.
However, if Fauria keeps scoring, Schwartz might be the first one to hit up a “Dance Dance Revolution” machine the next time he is at a movie theater.
During Sunday's 27-20 win over Washington, Fauria hauled in a 5-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter from quarterback Matthew Stafford. The rookie then decided to celebrate his second touchdown reception this season with a rendition of 'N Sync’s dances moves from the video “Bye Bye Bye”. It's not like Justin Timberlake has ever scored an NFL touchdown, so it's hard to knock Fauria.
After Fauria celebrated in Week 1, Schwartz said he was not a fan of anything dance-related (shocker):
“I don’t really pay a whole lot attention to it during the … it’s actually on film,” Schwartz told reporters. “And I don’t know if you want that. I mean, there’s a reason I don’t dance at weddings, anywhere else, because of cameras. There are a lot of cameras in NFL games, so I’ll just probably leave it at that.”
If Fauria keeps it up, Schwartz may want his tight end to at least teach him "The Electric Slide" so he will not look awkward at weddings.
Fauria, we salute you:
