This. Is. Brilliant.
On Tuesday night in the Npower Championship Nottingham Forest claimed a 2-2 draw away at Blackpool, and the opening game of the match went to visitors courtesy of an wonderfully improvised looping effort from Billy Sharp.
Immediately after scoring Sharp raced over towards the travelling Forest fans, which in turn lead to a comic goal celebration.
After power-sliding on his knees in front of a group of ecstatic Nottingham fans, Sharp noticed that one of the supporters was jumping around whilst holding a hot dog. Next thing you know the fan handed his snack over to the footballer, who scoffed it down before returning towards the centre-circle for the restart.
Happily the whole hot dog event was recorded by an eye-witness and then uploaded onto YouTube.
