Even if you're not a fan of American football, you've got to love the showmanship. Few other sports feature celebratory dances like the NFL. Nobody is doing The Funky Chicken after a successfull outfield catch in baseball. You won't see a tennis player performing a signature shuffle after a powerful service ace. The sport in which you will find a wide variety of dances is football, especially after a touchdown! A touchdown is a big deal. It's six whole points. It helps your team win, so it makes sense that so many players who score said touchdown want to celebrate.

These celebrations are the thing of legend in the world of football, featuring everything from creative, choreographed movements, to spontaneous outbursts, to simple ball spikes and slams. We've compiled a list of our top 10 favorite NFL endzone celebrations in illustrated form. We had such a tough time ranking them, since they are all amazing in their own, special ways, that we put them in chronological order. We've even included step-by-step instructions on how to perform the dances yourself. Bust out the full length mirror and try these out in your living room, den, football stadium, bedroom, wherever!

Released in1992, 1993, and 1994 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, the Super Star Wars trilogy of games is not known for its strict adherence to the films they are based on. And in many ways, that's a good thing. Straying from the films allows players to do the unimaginable, with fun and exciting results. Did you ever dream what it would be like if Chewbacca squared up against bounty hunter Boba Fett? How about Han Solo defending Princess Leia’s honor by personally taking on Jabba the Hutt? These sort of scenarios are possible in video games. The artwork and run-and-gun style of the three Super Star Wars games for the Super Nintendo have aged surprisingly well, which is why it’s no surprise they were re-released on the Nintendo eShop in 2009. Take a trip with us through the mid-90s as we look at the ten most memorable bosses from the Super Star Wars series.
