Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin apologizes for Super Bowl celebration aimed at Darrelle Revis

Super Bowl FootballBaldwin told ESPN 710 Seattle yesterday that his Super (Toilet) Bowl XLIX touchdown celebration (dance?) was aimed at Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis. Baldwin caught a 3-yard touchdown pass after Revis was picked in the end zone by an official to give the Seahawks a 24-14 lead in the third quarter, so he decided to party like he was in a Porta Potty. Baldwin squatted over the brown ball, pretended to pull down his game pants and, well I guess you can say he sorta pooped out the ball.

“In that moment it was just a reaction, and if I could go back, I would take it back,” Baldwin told Seattle’s KIRO-AM on Monday. “In that moment it was a spontaneous reaction to the course of the game. That’s not typically me, but in that situation that’s just what happened … Personally I didn’t mean anything by it negatively towards anybody. I do regret the fact that it cost my team 15 yards. And to the fans, ultimately I do apologize to anybody who I offended in any way.”

The receiver also admitted that the move was directed at Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis — who shut Baldwin down aside from the three-yard touchdown catch in which the defensive back was picked by the referee.

“In that moment I guess you could say it was just kind of a built-up frustration I was letting out in that sequence, between him and I,” Baldwin said. “Because obviously there was competitive stuff going on in that game, and in that moment I just let out what I felt personally.”
