Horn 'humbled' by Thomas' TD celebration

JL7_6674 Video: Joe Horn Says Michael Strahan Is Salty About Michael Thomas' Flip Phone Celebration Because Horn Scored Four Touchdowns On The Giants In 2003

The Saints superstar wideout put an exclamation point on New Orleans' win over the Rams by whippin' out a Joe Horn-style phone call after a 72-yard TD in the 4th quarter.

Horn, now 46, told Jeff Duncan of The Times-Picayune he was working out by himself in a gym in MS when he witnessed Thomas' tribute.

Horn said he texted Thomas and "thanked him for doing what most athletes in his position would never do".

Horn, a Saints Hall of Famer who caught 50 touchdown passes for the franchise from 2000-06, will forever be remembered for his controversial 2003 touchdown celebration, which resulted in a $30,000 fine in an era when receivers such as Terrell Owens, Chad Johnson and Horn were regularly coming up with elaborate celebrations.

Thomas said he watched the celebration before the game and had been thinking about duplicating it for a while.

A team of Pakistani officials was expected to arrive here on November 9 to finalise the details. It would be Pakistan's 13th bailout from the International Monetary Fund since the 1980s.

It's was also pretty cool that Thomas thought to do it, and even had a chance to do the celebration.

Horn, however, still lays claim to the cell phone celebration. "I loved the swagger that he brought". The hardest challenge is he's such a great player and they're such a great team, especially offensively, that they're going to get theirs.

Saints defensive end Alex Okafor, also speaking to NFL.com, added: "Outside of about four or five runs, I think we did a (heck) of a job".

Horn told ESPN the Thomas' celebration "absolutely" meant a lot to him.

Horn's end zone call, however, was even more costly, with the National Football League levying a $30,000 fine for the Saints standout's celebration.
