Italian footballer shown red card for celebrating goal by smashing his head through dugout wall

There have been many strange ways to celebrate a goal, but this might be the strangest. After taking advantage of the opposing goalkeeper's inability to handle a free kick, a player for Italian amateur club Riole Terme tapped in an easy goal. He then ran towards his side's bench in what seemed like a standard attempt to celebrate with his teammates, but he ran right past them and, in an insane twist, smashed his head through the dugout's plexiglass wall.

The player seemed to be unhurt, though the same couldn't be said for the shattered dugout. Without missing a beat, he jogged back onto the pitch to resume the match, at which point the referee showed him a straight red card for his destructive celebration. The player was surprised and tried to argue, but eventually relented and walked off, probably feeling a bit light headed all of the sudden.

And that's how you celebrate a goal if you're a crazy person.
