Nelson's girlfriend, Kelsi Reich, is a cheerleader for the Dallas Cowboys. Nelson said before the game that if he got in the end zone, he had a surprise up his sleeve.
He also came out and let it be known that it was not a proposal that he had up his sleeve, saying,
"I can honestly tell you 100 percent it will not be a proposal. Been there and done that. I want to do something that hasn't been done before, but the situation has to be right. I'm not a big celebration guy when I score, but this is a special situation and if something happens I'll be looking to enjoy the situation."
What could it possibly be? The grandest of romantic gestures? A little playful humiliation?
Nelson actually got in the end zone, scoring on a three-yard touchdown. In what could have been his shining moment, he trotted over to his girlfriend, gave her a hug, handed her the ball and headed back to his sideline.
For those who didn't have a clue that he was planning on doing something the entire time, that may seem "cute." For those of us hoping that we would see something we've never seen before, it's disappointing.
Was Nelson's gesture lame or romantic?
Nelson and the Bills are in the process of being blown away. Maybe if he would have broken out a flamboyant touchdown dance and utilized the opportunity to its full potential, that wouldn't be the case.
