Although the NFL has placed some restrictions on how a player can celebrate touchdowns, it's always fun to see what the players have in store for the fans.
Whether the celebrations entail an interesting pose, a funky dance or an outside prop, there is no doubting the entertainment value of these scoring rituals.
So, in honor of one of the best parts of the game, here are best touchdown celebrations of the 2011-12 season.
If you want to piss off people in Cleveland, all you have to do is mention LeBron James.
Or imitate him.
Maurice Jones-Drew takes it to a higher level here. After hitting the endzone, MoJo puts on his best LeBron impersonation for the Cleveland Browns fans.
Jones-Drew did a pretty nice job trying to act like LeBron. But if he wants to perfect his James impression, MoJo should stop scoring in the fourth quarter.
I don't know what to call Lance Moore's touchdown dance. All I know is that I wish I could do it.
After his score against Carolina, Chicago back Marion Barber does a back-flip.
Well, he attempts to.
Unfortunately for Barber, it probably didn't go as smoothly as he wanted it to. Nonetheless, it still makes for a nice clip.
In 2010, we had Aaron Rodgers' championship belt gesture.
In 2011, we had Cam Newton's Superman pose.
Newton reenacted the famous Superman pose every time he hit the endzone via a run. The celebration seems rather appropriate, being that Cam actually plays as if he has superpowers.
By the way, I've heard that Superman wears Cam Newton pajamas.
Just like Newton's, Victor Cruz's celebrations become a personal staple every time he scored.
Each time Cruz raked in a passing score, he showed off his impressive salsa skills.
By the looks of this celebration, Tony Scheffler may be as good at handling a sword as he is at catching a football.
And, he'll be taking his air sword straight to the postseason.
There is no doubt that Buffalo's Stevie Johnson is quite the character.
So, it should come as no surprise when he hit up the Jets for the most controversial touchdown celebration of the year.
Johnson kills two birds with one stone here. First, he makes light of Plaxico Burress' shooting incident, then pokes fun at Santonio Holmes' jet dance.
San Diego's Mike Tolbert gets to the endzone an awful lot.
I just don't know why he doesn't do this more often.
Enjoy Tolbert's hilarious dance, complete with a belly rub.
We have seen some very interesting endzone props in the past—T.O.'s Sharpie, Joe Horn's cell phone, T.O.'s pom-poms, Ochocinco's HOF jacket, T.O.'s popcorn and... well you get the point.
Here, Marshawn Lynch's favorite childhood snack is incorperatedSkittles.
All I have to say about this one is...really?!?!?
Looks like our friend Tony Scheffler is back for another go-round.
His first demonstration was quite good, but there's no doubting how great this one.
Now we know Tony can sword fight and participate in a West Side Story play.
Apparently, this dance by Antonio Brown is called the "Bennie Biggle Wiggle."
The Jets-Patriots rivalry is easily one of the best in sports.
Unfortunately for Gang Green fans, the Jets put up little to no resistance when it came to stopping New England's romp to the AFC's No. 1 seed.
Deion Branch basically sums that all up as he does his best Fireman Ed impression after hitting the endzone at the Meadowlands.
I have no idea what Brandon Jacobs is trying to do here. All I know is that it may be inappropriate for viewers under the age 18.
After David Nelson brought in a touchdown pass in Dallas, he ran all the way over to the other side of the field and handed the ball to Cowboys' cheerleader Kelsi Reich, his girlfriend.
By giving her the ball, Nelson also gave his girlfriend television time, a good 15 minutes of fame, and a keeper of a souvenir.
What have you gotten your girlfriend lately?
For out last celebration, we'll look to put a bow on things.
Here, Pierre Thomas takes a bow—out of his pants—places it on the football, and gives a fan a nice Christmas gift.
If I were the fan, I'd take the football and give back the bow.
