Following a thrilling comeback win for the Seattle Seahawks in Sunday's NFC championship game, defensive end Michael Bennett had to express his euphoria. So he grabbed a bike from a police officer stationed on the field and did a celebratory cruise in front of the fans.

The image was broadcast to millions: The pure joy of riding a bicycle combined with joy of victory beaming from Bennett's face and his whole demeanor.

For Bennett, it was a chance to express his love of biking. "I bike all the time," he said, according to the Seahawks. "I'm a real biker. I've got three bikes at my house, so I was just having fun.
