Anatomy of a Celebration

Edson Buddle was excited to score his first goal of the season, his teammates were excited that he scored his first goal of the season and you the fans were excited as well.


But amid all of the excitement, Buddle was sure to remember how to properly celebrate a goal.

Take a look...

After beating Kevin Hartman at the near post with a left-footed shot, Buddle began to run toward the corner flag before stopping and accepting a hug from Landon, the man who played Buddle in behind the K.C. defense...
Then he accepted some congratulations from some more of his teammates...
Next Buddle ran his way over to the bench, soaking in the cheers of the crowd...Before celebrating with the rest of the guys on the bench...It's almost like he has done this a time or two before.

The placement of Buddle's left hand upon the tuckus of Donovan is questionable. Other than that, great goal. Especially great timing.

Who is the guy in the far left of the bottom picture? That hair and body type makes him look suspiciously like Peter Vagenas!

I believe the person with the amazing cranial resemblence to "Back-Pass" Petey is Mr. Ben Yauss (the head fitness coach).
Wow - that is uncanny. Hmmm...

Awesome shot... perhaps now we can see more of Buddle and less of Gordon "the donkey". I instinctively bury my head in my hands each time the latter is presented with an open goal.
