Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez posterizes official during TD celebration

By Ryan Wilson | CBSSports.com

Before Tony Gonzalez was one of the best tight ends in NFL history and a sure-fire first-ballot Hall of Famer, he was a Cal basketball player (as a junior in 1996-97, he appeared in 28 games, averaged 6.8 points and 4.5 rebounds).

It's not unusual for Gonzalez to celebrate a touchdown by dunking the ball over the crossbar. Less common, however: the Falcons' tight end accidentally posterizing the official in the process.

We believe this is called getting "Greg Paulus-ed."
