    the “celebratory dance” does not have anything to do with kicking the football is it?…. maybe the link is this one??… http://www.flickr.com/photos/wentzelepsy/5746368431/in/photostream

    No, the dance had nothing to do with the football, but Lucy Van Pelt did, and in this picture she is depicted as a Blink Angel. By extension, the comment implies that she used her Blink Angel powers to move the football at high speed when Charlie Brown blinked on his approach to kick it.
