Stefon Diggs needed a change of scenery, so the Minnesota Vikings granted him his wish.
It didn’t take long before he proved to be one of the best in the game, developing instant rapport with Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills.
Diggs has now become a marquee name around wideouts in the league, and he’s well aware of it.
As a matter of fact, he’s become famous for his ‘I’m Him’ celebration on every touchdown and big play, although we didn’t know where he got the inspiration for that… Until now.
In a recent appearance on The Rich Eisen Show, the Maryland product admitted that he actually drew the inspiration from a bowling legend Pete Weber.

“It’s the best video I’ve ever seen in any sport,” Diggs said.
Pro bowler Pete Weber made the rounds on social media for screaming, “WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? I AM!” after winning a title, and Diggs loved every single second of it.

Stefon was recently criticized for reportedly leaving the locker room early after the Bills’ heartbreaking playoff loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, but he didn’t apologize.
Instead, he claimed that he was never going to be satisfied with losing and that he was not going to feel sorry for being competitive and emotional about the game.
That may not sit well with some people, but Stefon Diggs has made it clear that he doesn’t care about what anybody else thinks; he knows ‘he’s him.’
Competitiveness transcends all sports, so it doesn’t matter where you draw your inspiration from, as long as you live up to those standards.NEXT: Key Bills Player Gets Honest About His NFL Future
