A couple weeks ago, the nation saw a celebration for Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman.
In the video posted to Twitter by the Rams official account, head coach Sean McVay tells the team huddled around him that the club always is looking to celebrate the accomplishments of those in the organization. Then he announces who the club is celebrating on this particular day.
Later that night, the video would lead SportsCenter, with host Scott Van Pelt terming it the “Best thing I saw Today.”
“It surprised me. I didn’t think it would blow up like it did,” Robey-Coleman said of his celebration in a recent interview with therams.com. “At first I thought it was somebody’s birthday — because I saw balloons and all that, I was like, ‘Oh, it’s somebody’s birthday today.’ So I’m looking around like, ‘Whose birthday is it today?’ Whatever, like that. And then coach McVay was like, ‘We’re always happy when somebody has great things going on’ and all that good stuff.
“And then he said my name and I was like, ‘Oh, me? Me? I’m that guy?’” Robey-Coleman continued with a laugh. “But it really made me feel special. It made me feel good from the standpoint of, my hard work didn’t go unnoticed. My hard work didn’t go unnoticed. They actually see what’s going on.
