Julie Fleeting demonstrated an interesting post-goal celebration technique in San Diego's 1-1 tie against New York. After scoring the tying goal, Fleeting ran over to the corner of the field, dropped to her hands and knees, and lifted her leg in the direction of the corner flag, imitating a dog urinating on a tree. As Fleeting walked away, Aly Wagner performed the same bit of comic mime. The PAX announcers refrained from making any commentary on this scene, allowing the scene to unfold in an eerie silence. I guess this is what happens when the players are banned from taking off their shirts after scoring goals (the Brandi Chastain maneuver).
