That's unlucky. Kinda reminds me of Gus Frerotte.

Except for the obvious bit that Frerotte knocked himself out in his own celebration.

Yeah. I was just referring to the fact that he hurt his head in a celebration. I wasn't saying it was exactly the same.

hmm. I thought I'd noticed in past similar situations, the celebrant looks more annoyed than anything else when the rest of the team piles on.
