Best goal celebration ever?

Post by Ann » Mon Aug 09, 2010 6:06 pm

You know Iceland, don't you? An island all alone in the Atlantic Ocean, with the Mid-Atlantic Ridge right under their feet, with volcanoes going off and ash spewing out of their glaciers, filling the airspace over Europe with dangerous particles and grounding the European airplane fleet. Oh, and then Iceland was sort of a miniature hub of the financial collapse, leaving a lot of people in Great Britain and the Netherlands with no money in their bank accounts, and the Icelanders themselves pretty much going broke. Not much fun. And the Icelanders speak an obscure language which is supposedly a member of the Nordic languages, but it is incomprehensible to anyone, take it from me.

But the Icelanders can make themselves understood in other ways. They play football on this chunk of lava in the Atlantic (that's "soccer" for you not-so-knowledgeable Americans), and they have a team which, I would judge from this footage, may go by the name of "Fishermen". Here is how the "Fishermen" celebrate a goal...

It was probably the Yakety Sax sound track.
