Michael Bennett: “I took it from the cop and just rode it”

Seattle – The Seattle Seahawks had just completed their a stunning 28-22 comeback OT victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, so how did defensive lineman Michael Bennett choose to celebrate?

Why, by hopping on a Seattle policeman’s bicycle and pedaling across the field, of course.

“I took it from the cop and just rode it around the stadium,” Bennett said in the locker room following his team’s 28-22 overtime win against the Green Bay Packers that ensures the Seahawks a shot at defending last year’s Super Bowl title. “I bike all the time. I’m a real biker. I’ve got three bikes at my house, so I was just having fun.

Bennett is famous for imitating “Ravishing” Rick Rude’s pelvic dance after sacks, so we have to say this is a bit of an improvement. It’s also somewhat uniquely Seattle: We wouldn’t be surprised if that bike was made out of recycled coffee cans and repurposed Nikes.

Bennett’s bike ride led to a number of memes on Twitter, but this one ended up being our favorite.
