Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett definitely won the award for most unique celebration after Seattle beat Green Bay in the NFC Championship on Sunday. 

Bennett grabbed a police bike and then decided to take a joyride around the stadium.  

How good was that celebratory bike ride for Bennett? 

Well, let's just say it was the best bike ride of his life. 

"When I first lost my virginity, that was a good bike ride too, but not as good as this one," Bennett told "The Jim Rome Show" on Tuesday

I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. 

Anyway, Bennett would later go on to explain how he even ended up with a police bike after the Seahawks 28-22 win

"I just saw the bike. I was like 'Man, shoot we're going to the Super Bowl again, they're not going to mind if I take the bike,'" Bennett said. "I'm not going to take his gun, but I'm going to take his bike. So I was just riding around the stadium, I didn't know it was going to get that much exposure. I was just having a good time, popping wheelies, riding around giving the fans high fives and stuff. I just thought it was a cool thing to do."

The best part?

The Seattle Police Department doesn't even want their bike back yet. They said Bennett can hold onto it for another week or so.
