It was a good day for the noble art of the narcissistic goal celebration.
First, in the Premier League, Southampton’s Dusan Tadic flexed his abdominals – I think the medical term is “the Balotelli muscles” – after scoring in a crucial game at Old Trafford.
Then Francesco Totti took a quick selfie in front of the Curva Sud to celebrate his equalizer against Lazio. “I thought about it during the week,” Totti told Sky Sports after the game. “There is this fashion for selfies now.”
There is this fashion for selfies now. I’m torn between admiration for Totti’s ballsiness and despair at his apparently sincere embrace of selfie culture. At least he kept his shirt on.
I wonder if the selfie celebration is going to turn into a “thing”. It happened in Liga MX last season – David Depetris celebrating an equalizer against Tigres UANL (and then his team went on to lose 5-1!)
And Sporting KC’s Dom Dwyer tried it in MLS! The referee booked him lol.
