CORRECTED: Doing The "John Wall Dance"

Get Microsoft Silverlight

It was very brief, but there is no denying what happened. After beating Seattle's defense and burying a header past Kasey Keller, Omar Gonzalez celebrated by sticking out his chest, flexing his right arm and doing the "The John Wall Dance".

What's the John Wall Dance? It's a dance move popularized by Washington Wizards rookie John Wall while he was at the University of Kentucky. The dance was back in the national spotlight last month when Wall incorporated the move into his rendition of "the Dougie" prior to his first NBA home game (see video below).

While we've seen Wall and others do the dance on SportsCenter and other places, this is the first time we've seen a soccer player doing it on the pitch. Our reaction: Not bad.

So, in case you missed it, check out the highlight of Omar's goal again. The University of Maryland-product busts out the dance move at the 11 second mark. (Feel free to send us videos of yourself doing the same dance movie while wearing Galaxy gear.)
