Moss Pretended To Moon Crowd After Scoring

When I saw Randy Moss pretend to drop his pants after scoring a touchdown, my initial reaction was to laugh. Yeah, it was in bad taste, but if people want something to complain about, maybe it should be that two guys "chest-bumping" in the end zone is an excessive celebration penalty while doing the "fake moon" is apparently OK. And hey, this week Moss stayed on the field until the game was actually over, so he should get some credit for that. (Aaron adds: Also worth reading is Peter King's MMQB on Sideshow Randy.)
