The Saints were up three points and looking to put away the Rams in one of the most entertaining and competitive games of the year.

It only was a matter of time before Michael Thomas reached the end zone Sunday afternoon, and the New Orleans Saints wide receiver made the most of his moment when he finally found paydirt. Thomas went to the goal post and pulled out a phone, pretending to make a phone call. He was flagged for the play.

So, who had the better cell phone touchdown celebration; Michael Thomas or Joe Horn?

Sunday was a ideal example of the power an attention-grabbing stunt can have as "Joe Horn" who last played an National Football League game in 2007 - was featured in more than 35,000 tweets less than an hour after the final whistle. And while some lamented the decision, the man responsible for the original iconic celebration gave it his stamp of approval. He was their best receiver from 2000 to 2006 and scored 50 touchdowns and racked up 7,622 yards receiving.

It was revolutionary at the time with a celebration that not only involved elaborate props but a premeditated setup contingent on in-game performance. That's an alright day.
