Antonio Brown got creative with his touchdown celebration

Goalpost, meet Antonio.

IT’S BEEN A while since we’ve seen an NFL player go full Steve Smith with their touchdown celebrations, but Antonio Brown couldn’t help himself.

Pittsburgh’s star wide receiver finished with two touchdowns as the Steelers beat the Indianapolis Colts 45-10 on Sunday night football.

As he celebrated his second score, Brown launched himself crotch first into the (thankfully, heavily padded) goalpost — his interpretation of Smith’s famous fireman slide, as reader Neil Sherwin pointed out.

Brown’s execution was excellent for most of the night so we’ll let him away with a little bit of sloppiness on the celebration.

And because the NFL hates fun in all of its many guises, he was given a penalty for using the goalpost as a prop.
