Vikings celebrate TD with game of 'Duck, Duck, Gray Duck'

- Touchdown celebrations have been a staple of NFL games for a while now, but Monday night the Minnesota Vikings officially raised the bar. After tight end Kyle Rudolph caught a touchdown pass in the third quarter, the team sat down for a game of "Duck, Duck, Gray Duck."

I knew somebody was going to score. I said, ‘Look, when we score here, whoever scores, you’re the ducker. Everybody else sit down in a circle and we’ll have some fun,’” Rudolph said. “Case made a great play and found me on the scramble drill. I turned around and it’s probably one of the best sights I’ve ever seen in sports. Pat Elflein and Mike Remmers, Joe Berger are just flying at me to grab a seat in the endzone. We played for a little while and of course I picked one of the linemen as the goose.”

In another tweet, CBS Sports referred to the game as "Duck, Duck, Goose." Naturally, Minnesotans corrected them. VOTE: Duck, duck, goose or Duck, duck, gray duck?

The account even issued a correction later, saying they would file the information away for future reference.

“(Rudolph) actually was the one who came up with the idea for the duck, duck , goose and we had a little fun in the endzone,” Vikings quarterback Case Keenum said. “Yeah it’s not duck, duck, gray duck. It’s goose. Where I come from in Texas, it’s goose. Kyle called it duck, duck, goose in the huddle right before the play, so obviously Kyle is a goose fan as well. I’ve never actually heard of gray duck. What exactly is a gray duck?"
