There are poor sports in just about every corner of the sporting world from Randy Moss' infamous opposing goal post butt rub to just about every British soccer riot in the history of existence. However, did the US really do anything all that bad with their victory dance?
The head coach of New Zealand's women's soccer team seems to think so, according to USA Today.
During the ladies' quarterfinal match, the US' Abby Wambauch scored a decisive first-half goal that caused an impromptu celebration dance with her and her teammates. It included cartwheels and poses that imitated the U.S. women's gymnastic team. They also did something called "the worm" in an earlier match against North Korea that ended with a US win.
New Zealand coach Tony Readings criticized their behavior saying that "we wouldn't do it" and thought it may have been "something I guess they work on in training. We try to work on scoring goals and stopping Wambach and [Alex] Morgan. We haven't got time to work on celebrations in training."
Is that so, Readings? Well then, I suggest you put in a little more practice with your team because the U.S. beat New Zealand with a score of 2-0. So if that's the case, that means you just got your butt kicked by a bunch of players who spent more time choreographing their celebratory Rockettes high kicks than their corner kicks.
