Drawing the Line on Celebrations

I came across an interesting piece in USA Today about celebrations in sport. It seems players celebrating during the game are increasingly becoming a topic of discussion and concern. The way I see it, sport is entertainment. Celebrations that are spontaneous expressions of joy and excitement are very much a part of the game. However, when the celebrations are self-centered, ("Look how great I am!") or rehearsed, when they put down the opposition or contain props, they have no place in sport and should be penalized.
