Fans and Animals on the Field

badger-on-fieldRecently during a football game between the San Francisco 49er’s and the Los Angeles Rams, a spectator decided to run out onto the field.  Game announcer Kevin Harlan treated the event like any other down and started calling the play by play as the kenspeckled fan ran wildly up and down the field with security trying to tackle him.  I thought it was hilarious, but there is real argy-bargy about the delay of a game when someone runs on a football field!

But people aren’t the only ones causing hightantrabogus interruptions of professional sports matches.   in Queensland Australia, an adorable koala ran onto the field in the middle of a soccer match! 

And a giant jack rabbit caused a major calamity when it hopped out onto the field during a Canadian Football League Labour Day Classic at McMahon Stadium in Calgary, Alberta.

But when a 4-year old took a wrong turn during a Legends charity football game and found himself on the field, without missing a beat, the players tossed the ball to the kid and let him run the length of the field for a score.
