Josh Norman is very good at what he does.
The Washington Redskins cornerback is arguably the best at his position in the entire National Football League and regularly finds himself pulling off plays worthy of celebration.
That happened this weekend against the Cleveland Browns, but it led to a truly incredible penalty.

Norman really got into the celebration following his first interception of the season, but referee Jeff Triplette’s call of the penalty was more memorable than anything the Redskins man did.
As part of his celebration, Norman mimicked the shooting of a bow and arrow, which drew an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. And Triplette made sure everyone knew of it.
I'm not sure what part of shooting a fake bow and arrow is unsportsmanlike, but I'm thankful that we got to hear Triplette say the words out loud.
Apparently, the bow and arrow celebration isn't actually banned in the NFL rulebook. Unless the officials consider it offensive or obtuse, in the same way as mimicking shooting a gun is, then Norman didn't actually do anything wrong.
Well, they don't call it the 'No Fun League' for no reason. Sometimes it feels like the league definitely needs to lighten up and have some fun.
