Carolina Panthers DB Penalized for Happy Gilmore Celebration

October 5, 2015

There may not have been a PGA Tour event on Sunday, but golf was still represented during a NFL game. Let’s just say Boo Weekley would have been proud.

In a game between the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Panthers defensive back Josh Norman jumped a route and intercepted a pass with only 46 yards of open field separating him from the end zoneā€¦and a Happy Gilmore celebration.

Right after he scored, Norman began galloping on his imaginary horse like Gilmore made famous in his fictional rise to the top of competitive golf.

The only problem here is that Norman technically used the football as a prop, which is a penalty in the NFL. Lucky for Boo, there is no such penalty in golf.
