    A lot of people are making a big deal about Steve Smith's touchdown celebration against Chicago where he wrapped his legs around the goalpost and slid down. They are saying it was the "best of the year" and "made the TD celebration Hall of Fame". He copied it from Pacman!!! Pacman was trhe first to do that!!!

    Actually Chad Johnson's River Dance that I choreographed was the best of the year.

    However, only Titan fans will recognize the "fire pole" slide as originating in the Coliseum. And if you are a true Titan fan you will know that Pac bit the celebration off of Roydell.

    It was one of the rookie WR, but wasn't sure if it was Roydell, Roby, or Jones.

    Actually, Courtney Roby did it first. Then Pacman followed up and did it. If I am not mistaken, they both happened in the same game. I was puzzled because it kind of made Pacman look like a copycat.

    I had that thought too. Maybe they got together and planned it. Who knows? Steve Smith sure did not come up with it.

    No, it wasn't a rookie thing. It was done because Erron Kinney is a fireman and it was supposed to be in honor of him.

    Pac thought it was cool and did it too. Since Pac gets more attention for everything he does, he got more attention for his celebration. Steve Smith saw a clip of Pac doing it during the Monday Night "I like it, I love it" bit and stole it.

    Thanks for the insight. I had a feeling there was some meaning to it. Did it happen during Kinney's missed games or what?

    I don't remember if Kinney was out or not. I just remember during the game, they kept doing it and we all thought it had something to do with a stripper pole. After the game I found out that it was all about Kinney and the fireman's pole.

    It's funny that no one has mentioned that when Pacman did it it was called back. That's pretty damn funny in a way. It was the Raider game when he hit the left side line and was gone. What a tease.
