Here Are 10 of the Best Mannequin Challenges Pulled Off by Sports Teams
First it was the Harlem Shake, then it was the Running Man (see video above). Now a new challenge fad has taken over the internet– the Mannequin Challenge. The objective is to pose with a large group of people and try to remain completely still, making everyone look like a mannequin.
Several teams are doing the challenge, and we are bringing 10 of the best to you.
After the Cowboys put a 35-10 beating on the Cleveland Browns, Sunday’s flight home looked fun. The team decided to do the Mannequin Challenge to celebrate their 7-1 record.

After the Penn State football team crushed Iowa 41-14 in Happy Valley, they celebrated by doing the challenge in the locker room. The whole team is frozen until the players erupt when the beat drops.

The Jr. Blues hockey team is the first team to do the challenge on the ice. They did a great job with the poses too. Players were in the middle of getting checked and getting into fights.

This isn’t a sports team, but Tim Tebow and the SEC Network got the whole crowd in on the challenge. That many people staying completely still was very impressive.
