The St. Louis BattleHawks moved to 2-1 on the XFL season with today's 29-9 win over the New York Guardians. The victory gave the team its second opportunity for a Bud Light Seltzer post-game celebration.

After St. Louis' Week 1 win earlier this month, the team engaged in some raucous partying in the Bud Light Seltzer Lounge. This afternoon, they did the same.

BattleHawks defensive tackle Jake Payne made his presence felt in viral fashion with his unique way of opening a Bud Light Seltzer can. Instead of popping it open like a normal person or even "shotgunning" it, Payne just simply ripped the whole top off with his teeth.

Not the pop-tab, mind you. The entire top of the can was removed.

Watch and be amazed.

That's a pretty cool party trick but also a good way to rip your mouth up if you have a misstep. We're guessing Payne has had some practice at doing that.

We're also intrigued with what celebrations XFL players will come up with as the season rolls along.
