Charlie Davies Teaches the League How to Dance

New, 2 comments

More than a scoring machine, Charlie Davies sure knows how to dance. Let's take a look at some of the striker's best moves.

Between the regular season and playoffs, Charlie Davies has now scored five goals for the New England Revolution. While each tally has been important, it's often the ensuing celebrations that have left the biggest impact on fans. With a huge grin on his face, Davies has used the moments after scoring to highlight some of his best dance moves.

Let's take a look back at the moves that Davies' has introduced to the MLS community.

The Return of the Stanky Leg

On August 2, Davies scored his first goal since September 10, 2011 when he nodded in a cross from Teal Bunbury against the New York Red Bulls. With the nearly three year scoring drought over, it was only appropriate that the stanky leg would return.

Tip Toeing Against the Fire

Davies would collect a goal against the Portland Timbers two weeks after the Red Bulls game but the New Hampshire native choose to celebrate with strength and conditioning coach Nick Downing instead of dancing. The dance lessons would return, however, when Davies scored against the Chicago Fire on September 7. While it looked like he was performing "I'm a Little Teapot," Davies later revealed that his moves were inspired by So You Think You Can Dance.

Two Goals, Two Celebrations

Davies became the first Revolution player ever to score multiple goals in a playoff match on Saturday when he had a brace against the Columbus Crew. How did he celebrate? By dancing, of course.

In the 34th minute, Davies did a few "pop and lock" moves in front of his teammates.

In the 79th minute, it was Scott Caldwell who witnessed Davies' skills up close.

The Revolution will continue their participation in the 2014 MLS playoffs on Sunday, November 9 when they welcome the Crew to Gillette Stadium. One can only hope that the affair will include another Davies strike, if only because it will likely lead to another dance lesson.
