  • Rachel Prosser,

    What is it exactly that Andrew Mehrtens is doing at the beginning?

    The first - double arms aloft thing - is that putting the bulls bullfingers back?

  • Evan Yates,

    What is it exactly that Andrew Mehrtens is doing at the beginning?

    He starts with the classic bogan "double-impedicus with arms rampant on field vert" . But then spoils his kiwi blokey image by going all dago and finishing with an "ulnar sheathed sinister with crossed dexter brachial elevated".

    How vewy euwopean of you, Andy...

  • Richard Irvine,

    Here's how you celebrate:

    'The fridge has opened'. Heh.

    I'd come out to Tomorrow Never Knows.

  • Stephen,

    ...The batsmen are easier to choreograph because they've got a prop. They could ride the bat around like a horse (a la Happy Gilmore)...

    Such a painful memory that I have to share it with the rest of you: Anyone remember Jason Gillespie riding his bat when he got a test 50 against us in...oh I dunno, 2005 or 2006? He'd previously promised his teammates that's what he'd do when he got a test 50, and lo and behold...

    Re: bowling, I always thought running around with arms outstretched like an airplane was quite funny, while simple at the same time.

  • noizyboy,

    Mehrts, classic.

    I'd come out to Tomorrow Never Knows.

    Bloody hell! So would I! Although, if Richard went out before me and we had to avoid a double-up, my fall-back position would be Only Shallow by My Bloody Valentine.

  • Dave Patrick,

    If you really want to terrorise the opposition, you should be coming out to this (or in fact anything by Wold)

    I dunno how that would sound over the PA but definitely in the running for best bloody song ever.

  • Hadyn Green,

    I've often thought that ground announcers (Dom are you listening?) should play something like "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairies" when the opposition are running out.

  • Russell Brown,

    I'd choose 'Know Your Product' by The Saints.

    Or the Flaming Lips' version of 'Seven Nation Army'.

    But the kids probably want some Pendulum, right?

  • Danielle,

    'The fridge has opened'.

    What a catch! That man gives all the squat folk of the world hope. I think I might be in love with him.

    The only two things I like about American football are a) the big brass bands and b) the touchdown celebrations. Breakdance the hell out of that endzone, boys!

  • JackElder,

    It'd have to be Gogol Bordello's classic "Think Globally, F*** Locally".

    Can't remember who it was, but I have a great respect for the cyclist who celebrated winning a stage of the Tour de France a few years ago in an unusual manner. He'd made a good break from the chasing bunch, so had time to sort it out - he sat up, pulled a baby's dummy from his back pocket, put it in his mouth, and mimed rocking a baby in his arms as he crossed the line. He was dedicating the win to his newborn son, you see.

    And of course Jacques Anquetil was famous for keeping a comb in the back pocket of his jersey, and sitting up and combing his hair as he crossed the line to win a stage.

    You know "excessive" td celebrations are a penalty right? So the number of fun dances has been cut dramatically

  • Emma Hart,

    or perhaps more if Emma's writing it

    It's hardly a reach: the entire Canterbury team went out and got publicly spanked a couple of days ago.

    Veeeeery nice call... I'd have Honey Power for the 2020s.

    Come on, people! You have to come out to Also Sprach Zarathustra/See See Rider, Elvis styles!

    Robbie Fowler celebarated his goal by pretending to snort cocaine off the white line.

    OK, I no longer see any point to this sport, sorry.

    Those are great photos from the book. The American sprinters got in so much trouble for doing that (aka, Black Panthers first).

    And the Japanese ice hockey goalie is wearing a helmet and mask! Ice hockey goalies didn't regularly wear helmets until post-WW2 (yes, ice hockey players are stupid).

  • Kyle Matthews,

    The committee decided that it would quite good to see the good old "grenade toss" brought into cricket

    One presumes that this, while entertaining, would lead to loss of match fees for all players involved. So 19th century.

  • Stuart Coats,

    'The fridge has opened'. Heh.

    It's a great catch but the whole clip is worth it for bumble's commentary. "The earth shook" is another great line, as is "you've still got to get another 9 wickets."

    Is that a Brett Favre Jets jersey in those hand signal photos? How very, very sad.

    And I'd come onto the ground with the last two minutes of Killing In The Name by Rage Against the Machine. As a very law-abiding citizen the irony would be fantastic

  • Hadyn Green,

    Yes it is, purchased proudly at the start of the season. It balances out my old Curtis Martin one nicely.

    'The fridge has opened'. Heh.

    I'm also reminded that excessive celebrations in baseball can result in the celebrant being pinged with a fastball in the next at-bat

    I've been doing some serious youtubage for Bumble clips - tomorrow's Links on Friday on my site will be a special tribute.

  • Rogan Polkinghorne,

    In the same vein as 'The Grenade', I think the '10 Pin Bowling' celebration would be good on the cricket field...

  • Richard Irvine,

    Here's a clip about the best celebration eva - for serious, this time.
