A left footed shot hits the net and an iconic celebration is born
Marco Tardelli has his mouth open in disbelief as he begins his run
Disbelief is replaced by wild-eyed passion and screams of delight
His arms shake vigorously as he continues on his joyful flight
A world cup final’s goal celebration that has lived long in memory
Marco just kept going like someone who had just committed a felony
The Germans probably still think their loss to Italy in Espana ’82 was a crime
But the rest of us can enjoy Tardelli’s unplanned explosion of joy, time after time.
