He breaks it out every time he scores. Totti was nicknamed 'Er Pupone' (The Big Baby) by Italian journalist Domenico Ferretti when he was just a kid, and he's adopted the thumb-sucking celebration as part of embracing it. Anytime you see this, it means the legend has hit the back of the net.

Italy won the World Cup in 2006, but they never would've made it that far if not for Totti's last-gasp penalty against Australia in the quarter-finals. Fabio Grosso earned the foul, and Totti stroked it home to send the Italians on the way.
