Video: Orioles security is even worse than the Orioles

Jul 23, 2010, 12:44 PM EST

Last night during the Orioles-Twins game at Camden Yards in Baltimore a young fan ran onto the field and … well, basically did whatever the hell he wanted.
After taking several laps around the field the guy hopped back into the stands, went up a few steps, decided to hop back onto the field, and then ran around for another 30 seconds without being touched. In all, he went untouched by security for over two consecutive minutes. I can only assume security’s plan was to let him tire himself out, much like Muhammad Ali’s rope-a-dope strategy against George Foreman.

    See that’s not how we roll in Philly. The first time, we’d tase him. The second time, we’d boo him and throw things at him, and then our catcher would clothesline him as he tried to slide safely into home plate. The third time we’d puke on the girl he brought to the game while he was out running around the outfield.
    See? Now that I stole the thunder from anyone who wants to make fun of Philly, we can go back to our regularly scheduled making fun of the Orioles.

    Baltimore cops have more important s*** to do than mess with a runaway Orioles fan. Haven’t you ever seen The Wire?

    Perhaps the security guards were confused because they haven’t seen any action on the field in years and didn’t know how to respond?!

    Not sure what my favorite part about this was. Is it the fact the kid ran around, didn’t listen to the cops, and did what he wanted, until the umpire finally told him to stop his shenanigans…and he did? OR the fact this whole clip is the most I’ve ever enjoyed Orioles baseball.

    They should hire Chris and Snoop as security at Camden Yards. Problem. Solved.

    Well, if teams would follow the Lead of Philly, this bullshart would end quickly. Who wants to pee themselves on television? Now, who else is extremely disturbed by the thought of a Bullshart?

    This is absolutely ludicrous…where’s the national outrage that the security detail let this guy run around for 2 minutes as they walked around giving him the rope-a-dope as Craig said? This guy could have attacked any of the players, the coaches, umpires and the Orioles security detail walks around? Huh? Obviously, they are so afraid of getting ripped after all the ludicrous national outrage when Philly did it the right way, and tazed the little prick who ran on the field at CBP. Once you jump the fence, you gave up your right to be dealt with in a fair manner. The health and well-being of EVERYONE else on the field are way above yours, and if you get your ass kicked or if you shit yourself when you get tazed, then you deserve it a-hole.

    Did you see the empty seats? They didn’t want the kid to leave before the official attendance was recorded.

    It’s funny how pissy some people are about people running on the field. I think it’s hilarious. Hilariously stupid, yes, but also funny to watch. I wouldn’t get pissed unless it happened a lot, which it doesn’t.

    Seems fine to me. I would prefer the harmless two-minute delay to the gestapo taser technique. Fine him a ton of money, give him a few days in jail, and publicize the penalty. But while its going on, the Orioles seemed to handle it OK.

    You would have done well in Nazi Germany!

    We are taking up a collection in the office. Hopefully we can mail them a taser or at least a can of pepper spray. If not i got an old slip n’ slide, maybe we can send that so their streakers can do a few tricks for youtube.
