DETROIT, MI-Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Kelley Washington missed the team's flight back to Cincinnati after yesterday's game between the Bengals and the Lions.

"I don't know what happened," replied Washington, "I finished my touchdown celebration and when I looked up the stadium was dark and the security guy was standing there waiting to lock the place up."

The stadium employee told reporters, "I don't think I've ever seen a touchdown dance drag on that long. It was truly amazing."

Stadium security drove Washington to the airport after he changed, where he took a commercial flight back to Cincinnati to re-join the team. All Washington had to say was, "I guess I got a little carried away. It's been a while since I got a chance, you know."
