Wes Welker's Snow Angel Celebration Lands Him A Penalty (VIDEO)

The New England Patriots trounced the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in a game that had a final score of 47 to 7. The score was bolstered by a long catch from Patriots Wide Receiver Wes Welker, who celebrated the touchdown by falling into the snow at the Patriots' Foxborough, Mass. stadium and making a snow angel.

From the AP:

The most trouble the Patriots seemed to have with the snow came when Welker was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct for making a snow angel just beyond the end line after his touchdown as the Patriots jumped into a 28-0 lead with 1:52 left in the half.

"I just got a little bit too excited there," Welker said. "I really didn't think it would be a penalty. I wouldn't have done it if I thought it was."
