Canadian Pro Football Player Offers Odd "Tribute" to Michael Jackson

People are paying tribute to the late Michael Jackson in their own ways, but here's one of the more unusual ones. Arland Bruce, a player in the Canadian Football League, scores a touchdown, then takes off his jersey to reveal a black undershirt, lays down on his back on the field, and folds his arms across his chest like a body in a coffin.

As you can imagine, his coach and his quarterback were not amused by the stunt.

Bruce was penalized for "objectionable behavior." Last season, Bruce was penalized for another unique post-touchdown expression: removing his helmet and briefly donning a Spiderman mask.
