We all remember Danny Amendola throwing a tirade (and his helmet) after breaking his collarbone earlier in the season.
Now healthy, the Rams receiver has resumed launching projectiles.
During Sunday's game against the Vikings, Amendola reeled in a touchdown reception and proceeded to do his best Rob Gronkowski impression, spiking the football.
Unfortunately for one helpless usher, there was collateral damage, as the ball hit him squarely in the face, busting his glasses.
Amendola never went over to the man, who received medical attention. He did, however, learn from his mistake, later handing the ball off following a two-point conversion.
The lesson in all this? Even when the Rams do something right, it still goes wrong. Their season in a nutshell.

Danny Amendola caught a touchdown pass against the Minnesota Vikings and nailed an usher in the face with the football. The Minnesota Vikings have been dominating this game but Sam Bradford was able to lead the drive down the field for this Amendola catch and slam the ball into this nice old man’s face.
St. Louis Rams receiver Danny Amendola spiked a football into a man's face, and appeared to break the man's glasses, after scoring a touchdown in the fourth quarter of Sunday's NFL game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Amendola may want to plan his touchdown celebrations better in the future. Not only does he owe this man a new pair of glasses, but the Rams were down...
During yesterday’s Rams – Vikings game, St. Louis wide receiver Danny Amendola scored a touchdown and spiked the ball in the back of the end zone while celebrating. Unfortunately the ball hit an older gentleman in the head and apparently broke his glasses.
Hopefully the man learned that he will need to move back from the end line next time.

St. Louis Rams receiver Danny Amendola needs to work on his spike accuracy. After scoring during the fourth quarter of the Rams-Vikings game on Sunday, the receiver fired a ball into the ground, and it bounced directly into the face of an old man who was standing at the back of the end zone.
So that’s two fouls on Amendola: One for spiking a ball while down 33-13, and another for...
Pow! Right in the kisser!
Rams receiver Danny Amendola caught one of QB Sam Bradford’s three touchdown passes in St. Louis’ 36-22 home loss to the Vikings. While Amendola’s TD reception was somewhat a thing of beauty, his spikes need a bit of work, as his celebratory spike of the football bounces off the turf and nails a stadium usher right in the head.
Judging by the poor...
As we have previously noted on this fair website, if you happen to be near an NFL sideline...you have to keep your wits about you.

Danny Amendola caught a six-yard touchdown pass from Sam Bradford in the fourth quarter of the Rams and Vikings game on Sunday, but his touchdown celebration went terribly wrong. Amendola did what most folks do following a TD, he spiked the ball with great force. Unfortunately the spike bounced up and nailed an innocent old man directly in the face. Ouch!
Danny Amendola of the St Louis Rams spikes the ball 5 feet from an older gentleman and...there goes the glasses.

First, we should address the fact the Adrian Peterson went HAM again vs. the Rams on Sunday. What a fuggin’ beast this guy is… I am in awe of this dude.
Here’s the thing with the Amendola spike. I know he didn’t mean to do it. I know Gronk spikes the crap out of the ball every weekend and it never hits anyone (or does it?), but there’s just something that rubs me the wrong...

AA gets the official heads-up on this one...
The Rams were trying to come back in their game with Minnesota where:
1) Adrian Peterson was running like he had a plane to catch and,
2) Blair Walsh was getting the HQ a LOT of fantasy points
But part of the game showed just how dangerous celebrations could be...
Danny Amendola scored...
Here's an example of how touchdown celebrations can sometimes go too far in the NFL. Watch as Danny Amendola of the St. Louis Rams breaks a poor old man's glasses in the process of celebrating a touchdown. Epic fail.Amendola owes that guy a pair of new spectacles, and perhaps even a hug too.Via Big Lead Sports.
We have seen some weird things happen this year in the NFL. From controversial calls by the replacement refs (and regular refs) and the sprinklers going off during the Dolphins game. Now we have this. Danny Amendola celebrates a touchdown with a traditional spike, but it gets to close to comfort for an usher who gets nailed right in the face as the football bounces up off the ground...
Adrian Peterson and the Vikings came into St. Louis on Sunday and beat the Rams up pretty good. And while the Rams trailed 33-7 at one time, they weren’t the victim of the biggest beating at the Edward Jones Dome. After Rams received Danny Amendola scored to cut the Vikes’ lead to 33-13, he took out a little frustration on the ball, the turf and a harmless unsuspecting usher’s...
