There’s nothing like football to put someone in the mood for love — just ask Odell Beckham Jr.! After pulling off an amazing performance during an Oct. 16 football game, the New York Giants player celebrated, danced and got romantic with an inanimate object! Really. Click to watch.
When the game between the New York Giants and Baltimore Ravens ended, Odell, 23, had racked up eight catches for 222 yards and a pair of touchdowns. That second TD would ultimately win the game for the Big Blue Wrecking Crew, 27-23, but most will remember this game for the Beckham-brand madness that went down in the end zone.
After Odell plucked an Eli Manning, 35, toss in the 3rd quarter to run in for a 75-yard touchdown, Beckham must have thought he had won a gold medal. He clearly switched sports, as he mimed going for a long jump. Perfect score! He followed that up by getting a little too frisky with the net the team uses for kicking practice. Get a room, you two!
SEVENTY-FIVE YARD TD.

However, there was plenty of game left. It would be a 66-yard pass from Eli that secured the win for the Giants. While Odell didn’t do any dancing or jumping, he did celebrate – by proposing to the kicking net! Judging by his ecstatic reaction, it seems the net said “yes!” Oh wow! Odell’s getting married! Sorry, Zendaya, 20, Khloe Kardashian, 32, Demi Lovato, 24, and all the ladies who’ve been romantically linked to the NFL star. It seems that this one’s taken!

After all, Odell and the net (“Anette?” “Netty?”) have been the cutest sports couple this side of Tom Brady, 39, and Gisele Bundchen, 36. When Odell finally got out of his slump and scored his first touchdown of the season, he went over and gave the kicking net a great big hug! Awww.
Odell’s on-field antics haven’t always been so romantic. Instead of getting intimate with NFL-sanctioned sports equipment, sometimes Odell loses his cool. Take, for example, the moment during the Giants – Minnesota Vikings game when Eli got intercepted. Odell started screaming at the official before butting his shoulder into the ref’s chest. Yikes! Thankfully, Odell has realized he makes a much better lover than a fighter. Now, when’s the wedding going to take place?
What do you think about Odell’s celebration, HollywoodLifers? Was it a little over the top or are you glad that he’s having fun playing football again?
