After the Seahawks’ miraculous 28-22 victory over the Packers on Sunday, players were undoubtedly elated. Always jovial, Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett took his postgame celebration further than the rest, as he commandeered a Seattle Police Department bicycle and did a victory lap around CenturyLink Field while waving to fans. From the Tweets below, it seems the Seattle Police aren’t too concerned with Bennett’s antics — so long as he returns the bike.

You may also recall seeing video of Marshawn Lynch pulling a similar stunt during his college years with California. Lynch famously took the team’s injury cart for a spin on the field after a Cal victory.

While they take their craft seriously, it’s nice to see these Seahawks know how to have fun.
