Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace said all the right things when he spoke via conference call to the media in Pittsburgh. He thinks fondly of his former teammates, he thinks Mike Tomlin is a stand up guy, all that stuff.
He did hint, with what must have been a smile through the phone, at plans for a specific celebration should Wallace reach the end zone against his former team Sunday.
Wallace mimicked Jets WR Santonio Holmes' airplane-flying thing (he's a Jet...get it?) Upon scoring against the Jets in Week 13. It's one of the few times Jets fans have seen that celebration in the last few years, but seeing specific end zone dances isn't exactly a market in which Steelers receivers have wandered.
Emmanuel Sanders scored a rare touchdown in Week 13, and he celebrated by doing former Ravens LB Ray Lewis's dance. Antonio Brown usually stalks around angrily strutting to the crowd.
There's the possibility he'll impersonate LaMarr Woodley's Boot sack celebration.
Or maybe he'll do the Mike Wallace Super Bowl XLV Celebration - stand around looking nervously back at Ben Roethlisberger with the ball near his feet.
Whatever it is, he'll do it with hand warmers tied to his waist. A snowy, blustery day is expected in Pittsburgh Sunday, which could derail both teams' passing offenses. Wallace and the Dolphins have been heating up lately as well.
It never hurts to prepare, though.
