Where Boy Bands And Pro Sports Collide
Pro athletes, they really are just like us. And in this instance, I mean they too spent way too much time watching music videos of the 2000s to learn dance choreography that only looks good when done as a group, preferably when your audience has a pretty good buzz on. What all that means is that over the weekend, the Seatle Seahawks celebrated Jaron Brown’s 17-yard touchdown reception with a nod to NSYNC, by doing a bit of the aughts boyband’s dance from “Bye Bye Bye.”
Bless the heart of this confounded announcer who refers to this as the team celebrating “Seattle style.”
Naturally, someone had the good sense to give this vid the soundtrack it deserved.
I really just spent 20 min trying to see if the Seahawks' Bye Bye Bye timing was right.— Grace Remington (@GraceRemiWTSP) October 13, 2019

The Seahawks instantly earned plenty of praise on Twitter, but their official account asked for a ruling from the only authority that matters.
Perfect 10s all around! 🙌😂 https://t.co/vKyRFiVcAT— Seattle Seahawks (@Seahawks) October 14, 2019
