Here’s a dipshit invading the field in Houston tonight, as is the Idiot’s way. He dodges a few tackles but finds his path blocked by the very low right field wall; it’s still too tall for his limited leaping ability (though it looks like that might be an usher playing defense on him).
I completely understand why American broadcasters generally won’t show fans who run onto the field in the middle of a game. You don’t want to reward them with attention (even though, based on nothing, I think most of them do it because they’re drunk and stupid, not because they want their friends watching at home to…
The biggest thing to happen at the IAAF World Championships this weekend was Usain Bolt taking bronze in the final 100-meter race of his career. The second biggest thing to happen was a jolly streaker running the track and having a grand ol’ time. Watch him break right through a security guard’s arm-tackle:
An idiot on the field in tonight’s Diamondbacks-Cardinals game bumped into St. Louis shortstop Paul DeJong before being swarmed by several security guards and tackled to the ground. While footage of the interaction with DeJong did not immediately seem to have been captured and shared by any intrepid fans—Fox Sports…
Today’s Giants-Brewers game was interrupted in the second inning by a fan who shed his pants somewhere in the process of getting onto the field.

There is, supposedly, tennis being played at the Miami Open today. However, all the footage I’ve seen from the tournament indicates that some sort of benevolent reptile takeover is going down.
Who could blame the kid with a matchup like Oregon Tech vs. Saint Francis in front of him!
Motagua were on the cusp of sealing a big win late into their match against rivals Olimpia in the Honduran league last week. Then, up 2-1 with just seconds remaining, the Motagua keeper was beaten by two shots that hit the back of his net almost simultaneously. One goal was the equalizer, scored by an Olimpia player.…

This weekend’s tournament at Torrey Pines brought us a lovely variation of Idiot On The Field—an Idiot On The Golf Course.

Today’s darts World Championship final between Michael van Gerwen and Gary Anderson was interrupted by an Idiot On The Field who rushed the stage and stole the trophy.
