Last week I was thinking, ‘You know, it has been a while since I edited a .gif for a Photoshop Phriday post’. And then, as if on cue, all sorts of wonderful things happened in the Michigan vs. Penn State game. Devin Funchess’ crazy TD catch in the 1st quarter was a great start, but then Dennis Norfleet just took over. Norfleet is in his third year returning kickoffs and punts for Michigan (he’ll also line up at WR) and last week passed Steve Breaston for the most kickoff return yards in program history. For a few years now many Michigan fans have also loved Norfleet for his fun attitude. Waiting alone in the middle of the field for a TV timeout to end you’ll almost always see him dancing. Well this week he took it to a whole other level.
With just a few minutes left in the game and Penn State about to punt from their own endzone (they would take a safety in an attempt to get the ball back) Norfleet busted out some true moves while waiting for play to start. You can see the full video here, and I personally recommend you spent at least 15 minutes watching it. You can hear when the crowd really starts to get into it. Football is after all, a game, and it’s always great to see the players having fun out on the field, especially after everything that is going on. Perhaps that’s another reason why this really took off this week. Or, perhaps it’s because Dennis was just so excited to get his hands on some seedy salt bread.
