Green Bay Packers Super Bowl MVP-winning quarterback Aaron Rodgers may not have been first to do the championship belt celebration, but he certainly has become the most famous athlete to use it.

And we’re the champs, beltified.” No doubt about it.
Since being awarded with the belt on the Super Bowl podium, it’s become a celebration everywhere. We’ve seen a Travis Kvapil belt celebration in NASCAR, and now we’re seeing one in college hoops. At the end of the Seton Hall-Rutgers Big East tourney game, a bench player for the Pirates busted out the belt after Jeremy Hazell drained a huge three. Here are some grainy pics:
It’s hard to be certain, but the man pulling out the belt seemed to be walkon Peter Dill from Seton Hall’s bench. Leave it to the bench mob to be the most enthusiastic guy on the court as usual.Google+
