The Oba show flips on. (Animated)

Not sure what to call this Obafemi Martins goal celebration...

Obafemi Martins bagged a brace and put the Seattle Sounders FC team on his back on their way to defeating DC United. Perhaps the most interesting footnote to the game itself was the fact that Oba only attempted one backflip instead of his customary one per goal.

A great through ball by Brad Evans springs Obafemi Martins directly into a 1v1 situation:

Oba's second was pure strength and determination:

His celebration after his stoppage-time goal was the highlight of the match:

Of course any animated gif post would not be complete without some ObaFlips:
