In his first game since being sidelined in September in an unfortunate, pizza-related auto accident, Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson scored a touchdown and had a little fun afterward.

Burleson, who was trying to keep two pizzas from sliding from the seat to the floorboard of his car, had surgery to repair two broken bones in his arm after the accident.

“He had purchased two whole pizzas, and one was sitting on top of the other one, and I guess when he was driving one of them was slipping off, and he was reaching over to push it back onto the seat and overcorrected and hit the median wall,” Police Lt. Michael Shaw said at the time.

Which is totally understandable. As was his “pizza man serving up a hot, tasty pie” impression.
