On Sunday, after the San Diego Chargers gave the playoff game away to the New England Patriots, Chargers all-everything running back LaDainian Tomlinson accused the Pats of having “no class.” Their sin? Stealing the “lights out” victory dance of teammate Shawn Merriman (who, incidentally, was suspended four games during the regular season for using performance-enhancing steroids), therefore showing “disrespect.”
Here’s an idea. No more victory dances. If you want to dance, try out for the Rockettes.
