Colts OL Quenton Nelson explains the inspiration behind his keg stand TD celebration
One of the scores came by the way of a Quenton Nelson run. Well, actually it didn’t.
The superstar guard got a carry at the goal line. Originally the call was that Nelson broke the plane and scored the touchdown. He had an absolutely epic celebration.
Nelson had some teams pose as a keg, while a few more teammates held him up by his ankles. He then proceeded to pretend he was doing a keg stand.
Of course, the call was reversed. They ruled Nelson down just before he got into the end zone. So the touchdown did not count. We still all got to see the celebration though, they can’t take that away from us.
After the game, Nelson was asked about the celebration and what his inspiration behind it was. He gave just an absolutely phenomenal answer.
This was great.@bkravitz: "What was the inspiration for the keg stand celebration?"
Quenton, completely deadpanned: "A keg stand."

What’s so great about this is how ridiculous it was. This was a clear answer. You kind of have to wonder what they were expecting Nelson to say.
There really aren’t many other explanations for this. Nelson did a keg stand because he wanted to do a keg stand. There was no secret meaning behind it other than he probably thought it was a hilarious celebration.
The good news is, he was right. This is definitely one of the funnier celebrations we’ve seen in a long time. In fact, this might already need to be considered one of the best celebrations not just of the year, but of all-time.
First of all, the execution was great. Second, it’s a big-man celebration. There are not many things in this world that bring joy like a big-man celebration.
In the words of the great John Madden in the legendary movie The Replacements,
“I love to see a fat guy score … Because first, you get a fat guy spike, then you get a fat guy dance.”
Thanks for being a legend, Nelson.
