EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - The highly entertaining Duck, Duck, Gray Duck touchdown celebration is officially a winner -- at least according to the majority vote of 151 players across the NFL.
According to a poll by ESPN of dozens of NFL players across the league, Kyle Rudolph's "Duck, Duck, Gray Duck/Goose" post-touchdown game was the favorite endzone celebration with 35 votes, or 23 percent of the total.
ESPN states on its website, "Rudolph gets creative after connecting with QB Case Keenum for a 13-yard score in the third quarter of the Vikings 20-17 win over the Bears in Week 5. Upon catching his second touchdown pass of the season, eight of Rudolph's teammates sit in a circle in the end zone as the tight end strikes up a good old-fashioned game of “duck, duck, goose.” Or, is it “duck, duck, gray duck”? Rudolph came up with the idea in the huddle during the play before the Vikings scored. “Apparently in Minnesota they call it duck, duck, gray duck,” Rudolph said. “We call it duck, duck, goose.”
The much-debated gray duck vs. goose controversy may never be resolved but at least everyone can agree it was an awesome way to bring in the new era of league-approved touchdown celebrations.
