After scoring what appeared to be a one-yard score, Quenton Nelson and the Indianapolis Colts pull off the “Keg Stand Celebration.”
Quenton Nelson and the Indianapolis Colts executed an instant all-time classic on Sunday and it had nothing to do with play on the field.
After scoring what was initially ruled a one-yard rushing score against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the offensive guard, who rarely touches the ball, celebrated in a unique way.
The Notre Dame product and his teammates pulled off the “Keg Stand Celebration.”
He didn't get in (after further review), but Quenton Nelson just pulled off the Keg Stand Celebration, an all-time instant classic.

For those familiar with the old-time tradition, the scene takes you back to a simpler, much more enjoyable time in your life. Nelson’s legs were raised by his teammates, up onto the keg (a prop, manned down by another teammate).
After a film like Rudy, while fully realizing the stature of the institution that is Notre Dame, folks are left scratching their heads. Is this what those Fighting Irish big hogs do in college?
Of course, it is.
Nelson, a Holmdel, NJ native, is an All-Pro guard whose skills helped transform a once disastrous offensive line (something the New York Jets are accustomed to at the moment).
The Colts currently lead the Jags by a score of 17-7 as the teams play deep into the third quarter.
