Big moments in sports brings out true genuine emotion, especially when great players do great things. In the 2007 NFC Championship, the New Orleans Saints faced off against the Chicago Bears.

Reggie Bush was just a couple years removed from winning the Heisman Trophy with the USC Trojans, and he was embarrassing defenders left and right. Even Hall of Fame defenders, including Brian Urlacher.

Bush was a great receiving back and nearly unstoppable in the open field. On this play, he ran a wheel route out of the backfield, quickly getting open behind the defense. After someone like Bush gets loose in the open field, just say goodnight, because this game is over.

The running back completed the 88-yard touchdown against the tough Bears defense, and he let them know that they just got embarrassed. As he was approaching the end zone, he turned around and found Chicago's captain, Urlacher, and flipped him off.

Bush finished the play with his signature flip into the end zone, then dancing in celebration. While it was a huge play, it was not enough, as the Saints lost, 39-14, to the Bears. Bush finished the game with seven receptions for 132 yards and a touchdown, while running for another 19 yards.
