VIDEO: Giants' Michael Boley Throws A Football Into Bystander's Head

This is a reminder from Giants linebacker Michael Boley: If you are going to stand near an NFL football field, please pay attention.

Boley delivered a blow to the Rams when he returned a fumble to the house off a botched lateral in the first half to put New York up 14-6 in this NFL Week 2 Monday Night Football contest. How did he celebrate? Why, by throwing the football as hard as he could of course. Sorry, dude in a backpack standing in the way.

So which was the more impressive feat: the touchdown or the celebration?

Well, the 65-yard fumble return touchdown was the longest defensive touchdown by the Giants since Osi Umenyiora, 75 yard fumble return TD, on Oct. 21, 2007, according to the venerable Michael Signora, NFL Vice President of Football Communications.

The celebratory toss into a fans' head was the first in recent memory, according to me.
