American defender Oguchi Onyewu has made a strong first impression at new club Sheffield Wednesday, setting up the club's goal in a 1-1 draw against Burnley and then scoring the winner in their FA Cup fourth round win over Rochdale. You might think these contributions would be enough to get him out of doing an embarrassing team initiation, but you'd be wrong.

Onyewu belted out the Spice Girls hit Wannabe at a team meal and even threw in a bit of choreography for good measure. File this under things we never thought we'd see the 6-foot 5-inch, 216-pound defender do outside of our most fevered of dreams.
