A lot of people were thinking the same thing after Kyle Rudolph’s touchdown dance Sunday. “What the heck was that thing supposed to be?” Speculation ran rampant. Was it a lawn mower? Was he opening a Christmas gift? Did he not have any idea what the heck he was doing and that weird spastic thing was just what came out?
Well wonder no more Viking fans and general TD celebration aficionados. We have our answer now. The dance was “the ice auger.” In honor of the device used for cutting holes in ice. So it was a Minnesota thing. I bet ice fishing fans knew right away. It was just the rest of us sane people who were confused.
A nice tribute to Minnesota from Rudolph. But not a great dance. Sorry, I call them like I see them.
