Video: Drunk Fan Gets Wrecked by Fenway Security

Anyone who’s been to Fenway Park knows that there’s always that guy who has a few beers and thinks he’s a hero. Sometimes they’ll talk a little garbage, sometimes they’ll throw down with another bumbling fool and then there’s the one who wants to get on the field.

I’m sure in sudden stroke of drunken brilliance someone might think, “I got this, I’m totally getting on the field, they can’t catch me!” Well, Monday night in Boston’s 9-5 win over the Angels, one of these drunken geniuses had that exact idea, but he was caught, and caught in grand style.

If the NFL does go through with the lockout and they want some replacement players, I think I know a guy Kraft can look at for the middle linebacker spot. Great hit, great form, Tedy Bruschi would be proud of that fundamentally sound tackle. Even with the new rules on dangerous hits, this one could not be flagged.

If you were watching the game, per usual, we didn’t get to see the drunken tomfoolery. We did, though, get to see some of the players react. Adrian Gonzalez at first base was grinning ear to ear. He looked over to Pedroia and you could clearly read his lips. “That was awesome!” said Gonzalez.

He was so right. To me, the best part is that the security guard comes at this guy like a missile. You see the fan basking in the glory of the moment. One second he’s jogging triumphantly with his arms in the air, more than likely thinking, “I did it! I’m king of Boston!” Then, within a matter of seconds, the bullpen shot a security guard out of a cannon and nailed the buffoon.

Classic. Purely classic.

I've been lucky enough to have done internships at Comcast SportsNet New England and WHDH 7 News in the sports department. During those internships I've been in the locker room and on the field talking to some of Boston's biggest stars. I also host my own ridiculous sports talk show on my town's local access channel called Sports Ch@t. Hope you enjoy my writing and hopefully I'll be coming through your TV someday.
