Video: Colts’ Quenton Nelson participates in keg-stand celebration on TD which was overturned
Indianapolis Colts offensive guard Quenton Nelson miraculously scored a touchdown Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and broke out the mother of all party celebrations in the end zone by doing an imaginary keg stand (via Yahoo! Sports’ Charles Robinson on Twitter).

Unfortunately for Nelson and everybody at home, the touchdown was reversed upon review, eliminating the keg stand celly from the official record books, but staying alive on the internet and in our hearts.
The 23-year-old guard scored a one-yard rush for the Colts, taking the handoff from quarterback Jacoby Brissett for the score before the officials reversed the touchdown call, dampening the mood before Brissett connected with wide receiver Marcus Johnson for the one-yard TD reception.
Nelson’s end zone behavior and participation of his teammates will sure to be replicated by fans. Despite the guard not scoring on the rush, he does get points for creativity since the NFL loosened celebration rules in recent years.
