Behind the sack: DE Babin’s celebration pose result of lost bet

DE Jason Babin posted 1.5 sacks against the Broncos on Sunday.

He celebrated one of the first-quarter sacks in a fashion unseen so far this season. He stood up and struck the pose you see above.

I wrote about Babin in this space on Wednesday. Later Wednesday, in the locker room after practice, I asked him about the celebration. While hardly Gastineau-esque (look it up, youngsters), it seemed a little bit out of character.

I wondered if it were an homage to Hulk Hogan. You never know when you might run across a pro wrestling fan in an NFL locker room.

“It was a Mr. Olympia pose,” Babin told Sportsinthe615. “I lost a bet with a buddy of mine, Chris Jansen. He’s my hunting buddy. We went to school together (at Western Michigan).

“I don’t even remember what the bet was about. Something insignificant. But if I lost he got to decide on my sack celebration.”

At the rate Babin is going, Jansen may need to get a list of sack celebrations ready in case he wins future wagers.
