Golden Tate gives us an aesthetically pleasing dive

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer

With Golden Tate's 54-yard punt return for a touchdown nearly complete, the Seahawks were about to lead the Cardinals by three touchdowns just 17 minutes into the game, and Tate was in a celebratory mood.

Which is why, five yards before he hit paydirt, he performed the kind of charasmatic dive normally seen in old Rodney Dangerfield (and Billy Zabka!) movies. Witness it below.

Unfortunately for the aesthetically pleasing Tate, his teammate, Mike Morgan, was called for a block in the back on the play, and the touchdown was erased from the scoreboard (but not erased from our collective conscience).

Then, Arizona scored 10-straight points to get itself back into the game.

But no matter, I think we all know who won the first half. His name is Golden Tate.
