ICYMI: The Return of the Ickey Shuffle


Wait, what?

Come on now, there's at least a half of a demographic who doesn't know who Ickey Woods is but he will now be introduced to them via a Geico commercial.

Yes, Woods, a former flash-in-the-pan running back for the Cincinnati Bengals back in the late 1980's, became famous for his touchdown celebration.

He didn't do a lot of them, lasting only a couple of seasons, but he did it 15-times in his best year, 1988, when he scored that many touchdowns.

For those of you too young to remember Mr. Woods, a current Cincinnati area resident and semi-pro football coach, here's said commercial.

This was the only video we could find to illustrate his history--it makes the point...
