Real Salt Lake coach Jeff Cassar shows serious self-control in tempered goal celebration | SIDELINE

Real Salt Lake head coach Jeff Cassar was an extremely conflicted man internally on Wednesday.

After Joao Plata gave his side a 1-0 lead over the New York Red Bulls with a fantastic curling effort (WATCH HERE), Cassar wanted to go all out and break it down with his best dance moves, but he restrained himself and ended up with the extremely awkward celebration dance shuffle pose slow-motion fist pump you see above.

The internal conflict starts right about the time Cassar goes into a crouch and raises his fists into the air. The hips begin to wiggle, but he thinks better of it.

It hits him: "We're not even 20 minutes into this game. We've got a long way to go. We're on national TV. I better not show these fools what's up just yet."

And he was right to do so. Thierry Henry calmly equalized shortly after halftime (WATCH HERE) — as he does those kind of things often — and the game ended a 1-1 draw. A decent result for both sides.

We applaud you for showing such wise restraint, Mr. Cassar, but we still most definitely wish you hadn't.
