Also, I'm not getting the smoking analogy. Winning is more akin to a sexual climax, where people get caught up in and enjoy the moment. It's not like the after game drinks or celebratory meal
Second of all, relay teams make noises when they run. They shout a codeword when they are ready to hand off the big stick. They breathe heavily as they work and they do plenty of pumping as it is, tightly corded muscles working in perfect harmony, sweat rolling down their brow...
But celebration is more akin to smoking the cigarette, and what this kid was doing was celebrating. I can enjoy the win without celebrating, much as I can orgasm without have to call my buddies to brag at the moment I release. Not being able to point to the sky doesn't ruin the moment of enjoyment from winning.Also, I'm not getting the smoking analogy. Winning is more akin to a sexual climax
Oh boy, here we go again, pity the poor Christian for not following the rules that were meant for everyone.

But I am of an age where we didn't carry on like a rather minor victory is the same as winning the Superbowl. One bunch laments participation trophies and another bunch can't stand watching a buncha morons, highly physically talented morons, carry on with each and every of dozens of TDs, blocks, tackles, sacks there will be each season as if celebrating it is V-J day all over again...
And sometimes those two bunches have the same members....
