Hynoski’s “awesomely bad” TD dance

Posted by Dan Salomone on January 3, 2013 – 9:00 am

Every week Giants.com posts its production of “Sights and Sounds,” and each time we get a glimpse into life on the sidelines during an NFL game.

So you could imagine the reaction to Henry Hynoski’s first career touchdown in Week 17 when he proceeded to charge like a rhinoceros, as he has been compared to, for his end zone celebration. His teammates, like the rest of us, could only sit back and enjoy the show.

“It was awesomely bad,” center David Baas said on the sideline before congratulating the second-year fullback.

Even the salsa dancer approved.

“I liked it, I liked it,” said Victor Cruz, sitting next to Hynoski when they returned to the bench. “The crazy thing is how long he had that in the back pocket. You know he had that thing in the back pocket.”

He did.

After the game, Hynoski admitted, “I had it in the back of my head since the start of the season. I came close a couple times this year, but didn’t really get the opportunity to use it. I had it stored away in case it would happen.”

Hynoski’s celebration also made waves outside of MetLife Stadium and was dubbed “The Hy-noceros” by an NFL.com vote that asks fans to name a play on a given week.
