Ten years ago today, Minnesota Vikings receiver Randy Moss took his celebration game to a whole new level.

On Jan. 9, 2005, the Green Bay Packers hosted the Vikings in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs. The rivalry game apparently made Moss want to leave his mark.

After catching a 34-yard touchdown pass from Daunte Culpepper early in the fourth quarter to give his team a 30-17 lead, Moss went over to the goal post, bent over and pretended to moon the Lambeau Field crowd.

The ensuing extra-point attempt was good, giving Minnesota a two-touchdown lead it would not relinquish.

Moss finished the game with four catches for 70 yards and two touchdowns. As it turned out, this touchdown was the last one he caught during his first stint with the Vikings. 

The NFL fined Moss $10,000 for the "mooning" celebration, which led to possibly the greatest sports quote ever.
