Washington DE channels 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin celebration after beating 49ers

Ryan Kerrigan is clearly a student of nostalgic professional wrestling.

The Washington defense end is known for his "showstopper" sack celebration, an homage to wrestling icon "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels.

But following the Washington's Week 6 win over the 49ers, it became evident that Kerrigan had more than one finisher in his repotoire. As he exited the field following the 26-24 win, Kerrigan tapped in to his inner "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.

Steve Austin's library of quotes is as prolific as Ric Flair's penchant for stylin' and profilin', and Kerrigan chose a hefty bit to break out.

"Vodka, whiskey, beer, tequila, more beer, more vodka, more whiskey and more beer," Kerrigan recited as he walked off the field.

John Wall commits to Wizards long term with huge contract extension

The Washington Wizards' long-term future is now a lot clearer, as superstar point guard John Wall agreed to terms on a four-year contract worth $170 million. David Aldridge first reported the news.

Wall, 26, re-ups with the Wizards through the 2022-23 season. By the time it expires he will be 32 years old, meaning the Wizards have locked him up for the majority if not all of his prime.

Wall was able to earn the dollar amount he did in part because of his selection to third team All-NBA for the 2016-17 season. Under the recently installed collective bargaining agreement, honors like All-NBA and Defensive Player of the Year allow players to earn more money on contract extensions.

The Wizards drafted Wall first overall in 2010 out of the University of Kentucky. In his seven NBA seasons since, Wall has blossomed into one of the NBA's best players with career averages of 18.8 points, 9.2 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game. He has been an All-Star in each of the past four seasons and is a one-time All-Defensive team selection.

"I think its sad that a few players think that it is taking someone else's spot, but you're not in the tournament director's shoes to be able to make that decision."
