Some football dances stand the test of time: The Ickey Shuffle. Deion Sanders‘ high steps. Some don’t. Such is the legacy of former Atlanta Falcons back Jamal Anderson who popularized ‘The Dirty Bird’ during the 1998 Super Bowl season. Flash forward a decade and Anderson’s still around, but his dance is a mockery and things start to get depressing.
That’s Anderson, above, partying as is wont to happen in those classic Drunken Athlete photos. The story goes: “We ran into Jamal Anderson at a bar in Atlanta. He ended up buying us 8 rounds of shots and then passing out on the bar.” We come not to praise but to bury the Dirty Bird, after the jump.
