CFL Hot Dog Chris Williams Celebrates Way Too Early [VIDEO]
*Premature Celebration Alert* – What in the wide world of Leon Lett is going on here? Hamilton Tiger-Cats returner Chris Williams gets Don Beebe-ed.
It’s always nice to see a hot-dog move by an athlete blow up in their face. Chris Williams of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats returned a missed field goal 117 yards against the Montreal Alouettes on Saturday. However, he celebrated too early and got tackled by Montreal linebacker Brian Ridgeway at the 1-yard line. Hopefully, this will teach Williams not to be a bozo. The Tiger-Cats ended up winning the game 39-24.
This play immediately made me think of Leon Lett’s debacle in Super Bowl XXVII between the Dallas Cowboys and the Buffalo Bills. Leon Lett made a boneheaded play during the Cowboys’ 52-17 decimation of the Bills by celebrating too early before returning a fumble that should have result in a 64-yard touchdown. Instead, Lett returned the fumble 63 yards when a hustling Don Beebe knocked the ball out of his right hand at the 1-yard line. Whoops. Enjoy both videos below. By the way, I have to give props to Dick Enberg for being all over the Lett-Beebe scenario in the video at the bottom.
