Today’s Houston Texans-New York Jets game at New Meadowlands Stadium was quite the crazy one. After it appeared the Jets were going to lose after blowing a 16-point lead in the fourth quarter, Mark Sanchez led a terrific drive in the final minute that ended with a Santonio Holmes touchdown reception, and ultimately a Jets win.
Even a fan got into the crazy action on the field! With five minutes to go in the third quarter, a fully clothed(thankfully) man went sprinting across the field, and right across the CBS television broadcast. The Jets’ players and coaches got a good laugh out of it, but CBS color commentator Dan Dierdorf certainly did not.
Dierdorf sounded like Joe Buck while he went on about how much of a moron the guy is, how stupid it was, how the guy will rightfully spend the night in jail, etc. I don’t disagree with any of that; It’s EXTREMELY stupid to run on the field. It’s a guaranteed ticket to jail, and usually includes an ass-crushing tackle from security guards. BUT, I think it’s hilarious to watch, and it’s not me going to jail, so what the hell do I care?
Oh, and I’m sure the NFL is embarrassed by this and will probably end up taking it off of YouTube, so if this video doesn’t work when you get to this post, you’ll just have to believe me about all of it. Here you go:
