Football players have their fair share of ways to celebrate victorious moments--end zone dances, butt-slaps, Tebowing, Kaepernicking... the list is endless.
But after Sunday's Super Bowl victory, Chykie Brown, a Ravens cornerback and an otherwise inconspicuous member of Baltimore's lineup, let loose in a moment of childlike glee that had America feeling the nostalgia.
Plopping down into the purple and gold confetti strewn across the field, Brown made himself a snow--er--confetti angel.
It was a brief moment of unadulterated fun, and hey, isn't that what sports should really be all about?
