Amon-Ra St. Brown kicked off the scoring for the Detroit Lions early in their “Thursday Night Football” matchup against the Green Bay Packers but received an alcohol shower for his troubles.
After securing a 24-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Jared Goff, St. Brown ran to the stands to perform his own rendition of the famous Lambeau Leap, aiming for a group of Lions fans in the front row.
However, one of the Green Bay faithful decided to share his adult beverage with St. Brown, pouring beer over his helmet while the Lions wideout celebrated.
Some would argue that St. Brown was disrespecting tradition, but his actions seem innocent enough. St. Brown didn’t jump into a rowdy group of Packers fans. Instead, he found the sparse group of Lions fans, which can’t be an accident.
Division rivalries can often bring out the worst in players and fans alike, especially when first place is on the line. However, no matter the reasoning, there’s no excuse for poor fan behavior.
