wc2k2, you are on a roll indeed. I laughed out loud at this one. In other news, since there's really no good place to put it, The Guardian now has a weekly football podcast football podcast. And these are just the sort of stories they revel in.

Was Fowler's the first instance of someone doing that particular celebration? I could've sworn someone did that same thing pre-99, possibly in an International match?
