Michael Thomas gives details on cell phone celebration

Michael Thomas phone

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas paid tribute to Joe Horn with a touchdown celebration on Sunday, and it sounds like it took some serious planning to pull off.

After he caught a 72-yard touchdown pass to give the Saints a 44-35 lead over the Los Angeles Rams late in the fourth quarter, Thomas lifted up the pad protecting the goal post and pulled out a cell phone. He then pretended to make a call just like Horn did when he was a receiver for the Saints 15 years ago.

Thomas later told reporters that he put a lot of effort into the celebration, even tracking down an old school flip phone so it would be as close to Horn’s as possible. He also hid a phone under each goal post pad to make sure he could do his thing no matter which side of the field he scored on.

As you might expect, Horn loved the tribute and said he got emotional over it.

Thomas’ touchdown celebration may not have been the best one we saw in Week 9, but it was about as good as it gets in New Orleans.
