The only change we saw was between the Rams and Saints for the No. 1 and two spot after New Orleans won that contest.

New Orleans Saints Pro Bowl wide receiver Michael Thomas filled up the stat sheet in yesterday's 45-35 win over the previously unbeaten Los Angeles Rams, finishing with 12 catches for 211 yards, one touchdown and one memorable touchdown celebration.

Thomas was penalized for the celebration and ESPN reports that he will be fined at least $13,369.

For those who don't remember, former Saints wide receiver Joe Horn orchestrated the initial cell phone touchdown celebration during a 2003 game against the New York Giants. And while some lamented the decision, the man responsible for the original iconic celebration gave it his stamp of approval.

Postal workers in Sarnia were among the latest to walk off the job as nation-wide rotating strikes continued Tuesday. Monday's strike means there will be no mail delivery in Rockwood, Elora, Fergus, Arthur, Belwood or Guelph.

Horn, now 46, told Jeff Duncan of The Times-Picayune he was working out by himself in a gym in MS when he witnessed Thomas' tribute. He said, "I watched the YouTube video before the game". Thomas hadn't talked to Horn about the celebration prior to the game. "You gotta have fun. I felt like I had an opportunity to make it happen, put the game away and make a call".

Thomas went on to reveal he had phones at both goalposts, planning for all possibilities.

"When I saw him bring out that cellphone, I teared up", Horn said. For him to do it on a national stage took a lot of courage.
