Last Sunday night, hours after Stevie Johnson regaled us with a self-inflicted-gunshot-wound-inspir
ed touchdown celebration
, Bob Costas, clad in a sports jacket and mock turtleneck, lectured the nation on the perils of impetuously shaking one's hips.

Apparently Costas' message got through to some people. Forty-Niners rookie Aldon Smith recorded two sacks Sunday against the Rams. And while his first post-sack celebration was reserved by today's standards, it still probably brought a frown to Costas' face. Smith's second sack was a different story.

The great irony was that by exaggerating the act of doing nothing Smith … drew attention to himself. Either way, it's hilarious: 


Aldon Smith's new sack dance: make the play, hop to his feet, sprint to the sidelines, promptly take a seat on the bench.

Smith, the seventh-overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, has 9.5 sacks, four passes defended, and a safety this season.
