Seattle’s wide out Doug Baldwin scored a touchdown against the Patriots in the Super Bowl thanks to running Darrelle Revis into a ref to break free for the easy score. Baldwin proceeded to celebrate by acting like he was using the bathroom, going number two with the football on the ground below him.

He was penalized 15 yards by the refs for the celebration and now has issued an apology when he joined 710 ESPN Seattle radio show “The Barber Shop,” on Monday.

“In that moment it was just a reaction,” Baldwin said. “So obviously if I could go back, I would take it back.”

He was asked who the celebration was aimed at, “that would be Darrelle Revis,” the wide out stated.

He was asked why.

“I spent a lot of time those two weeks prior to getting ready for that game just focused on my individual  matchup with him and I put a lot into it and in that moment I guess you could say it was just kind of a built-up frustration I was letting out in that sequence, you know between him and I,” Baldwin said. “Obviously there was competitive stuff going on in that game and in that moment I just let out what I felt personally.”

I guess I could see if the two guys were trash talking each other, but really his celebration should have been shaking the ref’s hand and thanking him for the pick play on Revis, because that was the only reason he was open.

He said another factor was not getting involved more in the game, “I was kind of frustrated I didn’t get more opportunities,” Baldwin said and that he viewed it as a big chance for him against Revis to make a statement.

He expressed more regret for the celebration.

“I do regret the fact that it cost my team 15 yards and to the fans, ultimately I apologize to anybody I offended in any way. It wasn’t about that. I just think it was a competitive situation. So to all the 12s, all the fans, that’s not what it’s about. So I apologize to anyone if I offended you.”

    At the end of the day, it just doesn’t matter – Pats win, and nothing the Seahawks do can change that!
