Danny Amendola beefs an usher with a touchdown spike, tries to make up for it later

Shutdown Corner

St. Louis Rams receiver Danny Amendola could be forgiven, we suppose, for his exuberance on this 6-yard, fourth-quarter touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings, except for two things: First, the catch put the score at 33-13, Vikings. Probably not the best idea to act all celebratory when you're getting blown out. Second, the spiked ball flew up and hit an elderly usher in the face, breaking the poor man's glasses.

Amendola tried to make amends on the Rams' next score, when he caught a successful two-point conversion from Sam Bradford after Bradford hit Lance Kendricks for another 6-yard score. Amendola handed the ball to the first usher-looking guy he saw, but it wasn't the same person.

"We kept fighting," Amendola said after the game. "We knew how much time we had so I guess we didn't run out of time, but I felt like we needed to get some points on the board early and it didn't happen. The good thing is we kept fighting and it came down to the wire for a little while. We have just got to get better."

[Also: Denver RB jumps over Ravens DB Ed Reed like a hurdle]

They say that when you score a touchdown, you should act as if you've been there before. In Danny Amendola's case, that could be hazardous to somebody's health. Scoreboard, dude.
