Pierre Garcon did not celebrate his touchdown with a dance or a clever joke like fellow wide recievers Chad Ochocinco or Terell Owens. He waited until after the game and then proudly displayed the Haitian flag for the sportsworld to see after his performance which included a touchdown and 151 receiving yards.
Garcon’s parents are both from Haiti and he has been trying to raise awareness for the country since the earthquake hit. After the game Garcon told reporters.
It’s just bringing awareness to that because what’s going on over there is very tough. Nobody should go through that, especially people who are less fortunate already. It’s just bringing awareness. Everybody’s been really showing their hands and helping us out, and I really do appreciate it.
