There’s just something about leading the Redskins to come-from-behind wins in throwback uniforms on alumni homecoming weekend that makes Kirk Cousins want to scream.
Last October, Cousins shouted “You like that!” en route to the locker room following the largest comeback in franchise history. After erasing a six-point halftime deficit in a 26-20 win over the Vikings on Sunday, the Redskins quarterback let out an “oooooooh weeeeee!” — or was it an “oooooooooouuu!”? — for the cameras in the tunnel.
Yes, what Cousins shouted sounded more like “ooooooohhhhh weeeeee,” but according to multiple beat reporters, the celebration may have been inspired by a similar cry from Brooklyn rapper Young M.A.’s summer hit “OOOUUU.” Players have been saying it in the locker room all season. (You can watch the NSFW music video here.) After the game, Cousins credited teammate Quinton Dunbar for “inventing” whatever he shouted.
It remains to be seen whether Cousins’s latest postgame celebration, which was again captured on video and converted to Vine by CSN Mid-Atlantic, will have the same staying power or reach as “You like that!” It also remains to be seen whether it draws the ire of Stephen A. Smith, who scolded the Redskins for celebrating a win over the Eagles last month.
It will be harder to agree on the spelling for a T-shirt, anyhow.
