Flagged down because of Praising God

A friend emailed me this news that Chris Johnson (Oakland Raiders cornerback ) was flagged down when he dropped to his knees and raised his arms in triumph after picking off a pass in the end zone. Johnson later explained that it was his instant reaction for thanking God:

A rule instituted in 2006 prohibits NFL players from celebrating in the end zone by "going to the ground to celebrate a touchdown or using the ball as a prop." The instant Johnson fell to his knees he violated the rule.

I guess, we really can not contained our hearts in Praising God! You maybe penalized for your action but surely GOD was so pleased with you.
