Monday night’s NFL game between the newly established Los Angelas Rams and the San Fransico 49ers was, to say the least, a boringly slow game. The clash in the bay was so slow and so pitiful that a fan running across the field, streaking, was the highlight of the game. An announcer’s play by play commentary of the streaker’s movements will go down in history as one of the funniest descriptions of a run play. You would think he was running the game-winning touchdown.

The announcer, Kevin Harlan, is now a national treasure after he describes a somewhat normal event in sporting, the infamous streaker. Harlan says the best way to handle those unplanned interruptions is to simply go with the flow. The refs stopped the game, and the announcer began to give the play by play as to what was happening on the field as the cameras panned away.
“Hey, somebody has run out on the field! Some goofball in a hat and a red shirt. Now he takes off the shirt! He’s running down the middle by the 50, he’s at the 30! He’s bare-chested and banging his chest. Now, he runs the opposite way. He runs to the 50! He runs to the 40! The guy is drunk, but there he goes! The 20 — they’re chasing him. They’re not going to get him. Waving his arms, bare-chested. Somebody stop that man! Oh, they got him, they’re coming from the left — oh and they tackle him at the 40-yard line! That was the most exciting thing to happen tonight.”
The aftermath didn’t disappoint either. “Look at the police,” Harlan said, having calmed down just a bit. “They’ve surrounded this man like he is”- as he searched for a TV friendly, non-offensive joke-“like he…like he just robbed a bank.” To further state how much of a drag the game was he ended with, “That was the most exciting thing to happen tonight.”
The semi-streaker apparently got “a full lap in” from Harlan’s accounts before he was tackled. Perhaps he too was tired of the game and didn’t want to go to work the next day anyway, so he decided to streak and go to jail for the night? We don’t know his life…
