NFL football is back! Feel free to dance.

Are you ready for some football? After more than four months of labor strife threatened the upcoming football season, forcing panicked fans to contemplate actually spending time with their own families this fall, the NFL and its players hammered out a 10-year deal that guarantees the season will start on time. It’s great news, especially for your bookie’s kid’s college fund. (If gambling were legal, of course). To celebrate the billion-dollar news, ESPN drafted Judson Laipply, the YouTube sensation who starred in “The Evolution of Dance,” to high-step his way through the history of the touchdown dance, starting with the funky chicken of one Billy “White Shoes” Johnson.

One quibble: Is that a vintage Tom Jackson jersey Laipply’s wearing? The Broncos great who scored just three career touchdowns?
