Arena Football League fan makes odd tackle

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

An overzealous fan decided to inject himself into the action during an Arena Football League conference title game on Monday night.

C.J. Johnson of the Georgia Force was about to return a kickoff from the Jacksonville Sharks when a paying customer grabbed him from behind and refused to let go.

Johnson understandably threw up his arms in frustration and members of the Sharks' kickoff coverage team gave the fan high-fives. The man, clearly pleased with his efforts, flexed and mugged for the cameras.

Officials awarded Georgia the ball at the 20-yard line.

And since you're probably dying to know, the Sharks held on for a 64-55 win.
