As a Marine I love how the GySgt reacts and that Goodwin didn't do anything stupid after getting put in his place.

Precisely which post-touchdown place was that? I'm being sincere. I honestly don't know exactly what elicited this response...

When the Marine started yelling Goodwin walked away instead of escalating the situation. Instead of it being a potentially embarrassing situation we get this hilarious gif.

When Goodwin ran towards the Marine he had his finger against his mouth in a "shhhing" manner.

"Put in his place"? "walked away instead of escalating the situation"?

Sorry, I don't see the Marine putting Goodwin "in his place". If anything, Goodwin just ignores the guy.

As for the escalation, you do realize this took place in when Goodwin was playing college ball, right? College officials are far more rigid and strict about TD celebrations. What you saw was about the extent a college player is allowed to celebrate on the field.

Please capitalize the m in Marine, it may not seem like a big deal but it is for us who served.

Looked like Goodwin may have saluted the Marine and that the Marine was encouraging him post-play...........
Unless it wasn't a home game for Goodwin   ;)

And while his God-given athletic ability is the vehicle that transported Goodwin to the long jump pit at the London Games, and to the practice fields at St. John Fisher College, the driving force in his journey is his younger sister, Deja.

My sister means the world to me, Marquise said of Deja, who is afflicted with cerebral palsy and cannot walk.

We take for granted the little things we have in life like waking up in the morning to go to camp. When Im dreading getting out of bed, the image of my sister pops in my head every morning when Im getting up and I realize how blessed I am to do the little things that she cant do.

In my opinion Goodwin will be at least our third most productive wideout this year and will have a role from day 1. Sick athletic ability and good hands to go with a good head on his shoulders, and the work ethic of an Olympian.

i don't think anyone showed anyone up...who's to say the marine wasn't making that reaction for the player?  i see no one showboating or showing anyone up...just an enthusiastic yell from perhaps a fan.  and for the record, while it be be a nice token to capitalize the 'm', in the way it is being used in this instance(aka as a generic term) it is not necessary to capitalize, the same way you would say 'the doctor' 'the priest' 'the candlestick maker', 'the teacher'

Why does someone have to get put in their place? The Marine was clearly an Ole Miss fan and did what most of the fans in that portion of the endzone were doing. No one has to win this situation.

It is a great video, I found it hilarious and could picture my Gunny screaming at me after I did something stupid (not saying that Goodwin did something stupid).

I think Sarge was lucky that was Goodwin, who seems to be a respectful and a genuinely nice guy.  There are those who might have been more willing to put Sarge on his azzzz for getting in the way.

I believe Goodwin is saluting the Marine and the Marine is saying touch down.

When this happened there were two theories, one that Goodwin tried to salute the Marine and the Marine yelled at him because he is not in the service and should not be saluting. Option two is that Goodwin helped his finger to his lips and then got yelled at. The video is great but I think it loses its effect if you have never felt the wrath and heard the scream of a pissed of GySgt.

Looked like both were just having a little fun. I served 21 in the Corps and retired as a Gunny. Maybe Gunz was just back from a lengthy deployment and needed to unwind some. Regardless, who cares really???

Marine is a title. It may fall on either side of what is actually proper but take it from a Marine, it's capitalized and I am sure 5 million other former and current Marines would concur.
