You need Aleksandar Mitrovic's celebration in your life

Seriously, though.

Maybe you watched the derby.  Maybe you didn't.  Either way, you know you need this celebration in your life.  Aleksandar Mitrovic, who has struggled to a degree in front of goal in his debut Premier League season today scored the goal that may just give us all hope that this relegation battle may have a positive end...  but that's for the coming weeks to play out.  What matters today is that this happened after he scored:

If Mitrovic has any reputation on Tyneside, that reputation is that he is a bit of a nutter.  It's probable that the reasons behind this are 50% his personality and 50% his actual love for this club.  It's 100% nailed on that his reputation as a nutter is exactly what went flashing through this pitch invader's mind as he approached Mitrovic mid-celebration and Mitro launched toward him.  In the perfectly scripted version of this celebration, the pitch invader catches Mitro in his arms, the orchestra hits a sweeping crescendo and they ride off into the sunset.  The way it worked out in real life was fine, too.
