The New York Mets' costly new stadium, Citi Field, was christened with its first scantily-clad running enthusiast last night. A big night for any young ballpark.
The nearly-naked doofus dashed from the first-base seats and slid into second with "Let's Go Mets" painted on his back and wearing only a stuffed animal wrapped like a thong around the middle of his strike zone for modesty.
As security guards came after the 29-year-old Queens man and more than 39,000 fans whooped and hollered, he got up with a raspberry flourishing on his right buttock, adjusted his stuffed animal and ran into center field.
The performance ended badly when he fell and the guards dragged him away through a tunnel on the third-base side.
Under what dire set of circumstances would you streak at a professional baseball game? Avoiding a mob hit and a lifetime supply of free Taco Bell are two reasonable scenarios that immediately come to my mind.
