San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Arik Armstead departed from his usual “Stay Hungry” sack routine in Seattle for another celebration. There wasn’t an explanation for it until now.

Remember that commercial that all the Faithful hate? The one with that quarterback from the divisional rival where defenders appear on skates and miss tackling him? This sack celebration of Armstead “skating” is his rebuttal to that commercial. (I’m not going to include the commercial in this article because there’s just no reason for us to get angry right now.)

Enjoy this video - he will go back to the “Stay Hungry” celebration throughout the season but against Seattle, you now know what to expect.
