Considering all the sporting events there are around the world in a given day, fans crashing the field is a statistically rare occurrence. Sure, the whole numbers game isn't exactly my "wheelhouse," as nerds would say, but just trust me on this one.
Running onto the field during a game is something that less than a fraction of one percent of fans will ever do in their lifetime. But thinking about running onto the field during a game, on the other hand, is something most sports fans have thought about at some point or another.
Seriously, I'm thinking about it right now.
But I'm not going to do it tonight. Or tomorrow. Or at any other Nationals game I attend the rest of the year. Or even the next time I'm lucky enough to attend a Steelers game. Not because it doesn't sound amazing, because it does.
It's because in reality, it is not amazing. Sure, you get attention for about 10 minutes, but all but a few field-crashers are nothing but a flash in the pan. They risk life and limb for absolutely nothing and end up in jail in their underwear more often than not.
You just shouldn't do it. And here are 20 videos proving why. But if you do do, please tweet me the video, because then at least someone will think you're amazing.
