Photo Sequence of the Day: Jackwagon fan struts, runs, gets tackled

Apr 17, 2014, 9:20 AM EDT

This from the Mariners-Rangers game in Arlington last night. It’s really the strut and the thumbs-up that sets this jerk apart. I mean, he knows it’s gonna end poorly for him, so why not get your stylin’ on pre-tackle?

I’m guessing 95% of the security guards working in the state of Texas played at least high school football. It’s probably the last place you want to find yourself out on the field. You’re gonna get yourself tackled, dude.

    Interestingly, that man is Matthew Pouliot.

    If that guy wanted to avoid being tackled, he should have run out in front of the Cowboys.

      As a Cowboys fan
      I completely agree with this assessment.

    • rollinghighwayblues - Apr 17, 2014 at 9:47 AM

      I have never read a truer statement, mule. Good gravy, I cannot stand the team I root for.

    Where is the source for this estimated statistic? Did you pull it out of your ass? Do you work for Fox News?

      if you didn’t exist, craig would have to invent you. sometimes i wonder.

      did he?

  5. sabatimus - Apr 17, 2014 at 9:46 AM

    I remember a fool on the field during a Sox/Yanks game at Yankee Stadium…guy looked like he was gonna give himself up and go quietly, and New York’s Finest slammed him to the ground anyway. Not that I’m complaining.

    The real question is Why is that douche wearing a lanyard around his neck with nothing attached to it?

    • historiophiliac - Apr 17, 2014 at 10:11 AM

      Just to clarify: if there had been something on the lanyard, would you have been okay with it? 😉

      • rollinghighwayblues - Apr 17, 2014 at 10:12 AM

        No comment.

      • 18thstreet - Apr 17, 2014 at 11:19 AM

        “Can you hold onto my key card and car keys? I’m going to run onto the field.”
        “You want me to hold the whole lanyard?”
        “Nah, I’m good.”
        “Okay. You know your hat is on backwards, right? And it’s not 1992?”
        “Okay. Good luck.”

      It is Phitens newest product, designed to draw blood away from the brain and decrease circulation. Apparently, it is very effective.

      His No-Access laminate fell off in the men’s room.

      • historiophiliac - Apr 17, 2014 at 10:30 AM

        Maybe they pulled his man card.

  7. historiophiliac - Apr 17, 2014 at 9:58 AM

    Boot scootin’. Mariners are not impressed.

  8. beefytrout - Apr 17, 2014 at 10:03 AM

    I would like to assure the HBT community that 99% of Rangers fans do not wear boots to Rangers games. This is just a douche who knew what he was gonna do and wanted to make sure the internet saw him in all his “country bro” finest.

    • rollinghighwayblues - Apr 17, 2014 at 10:07 AM

      Trout, it sounds like you need to mosey on down to Chilifest next year…where the men wear jorts and boots. On. Purpose. It is more than embarrassing.

    • thebadguyswon - Apr 17, 2014 at 10:11 AM

      The backwards hat more than signaled “country bro” status.

      • rollinghighwayblues - Apr 17, 2014 at 10:23 AM

        The worst kind of status.

    • DelawarePhilliesFan - Apr 17, 2014 at 10:37 AM

      Quit ruining our fun stereotypes!

  9. hojo20 - Apr 17, 2014 at 10:41 AM

    There’s enough time between pitches nowadays, so there was likely no interruption to the game.

    Texas is one of the last places I’d want to find myself period.

    • jimeejohnson - Apr 17, 2014 at 11:58 AM

      Just about anywhere east of I-5 for that matter, especially the sphincter of the universe, New Yawk.

        That’s the weirdest spelling of Jersey I’ve ever seen…

    • buggieowens - Apr 17, 2014 at 12:27 PM

      As a former New Englander, I can tell you Texas isn’t that bad, at least in the general Austin-San Antonio area with lots of amusements parks and other good scenery. Of course, they can’t make a good grinder or pizza to save their lives here. Still, we can legally buy fireworks, and, according to the video above, you get a free gun with every liquor purchase…..what could go wrong?

      Now, Texas politicians….that’s a whole other story….

  11. daveitsgood - Apr 17, 2014 at 11:29 AM

    So, a philosophical question here. I completely acknowledge that people who run on the field are attention seeking jackwagons, but that being said, some of the more forceful take downs/tackles by security seem to constitute assault and/or battery. I say this because in most instances, the jackass gets on the field, runs around like a fool, does a little dance and either gives up, tries to run back into the stands or ends up getting speared by a security guard. I’m not completely informed on trespassing laws, but doesn’t there need to be some type of physical or implied threat to use such force on them or do castle doctrines apply to jumping onto the field? Not trying to make a point here, but rather asking a question for some of our more legally versed commentators.

    • jimeejohnson - Apr 17, 2014 at 11:59 AM

      Legally speaking. cops are bass turds.

    • doctornature - Apr 17, 2014 at 12:21 PM

      It is assumed all fans running on the field have grenades and intend to blow a player up.

      So for the guards, it is like jumping on a grenade to save the squad members, only it is saving a player instead.

      That’s why security guards make .50/hr over the minimum wage…they tackle the hard stuff nobody else wants.

    • kevinbnyc - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:30 PM

      Not sure of the legality, but watching an unsuspecting trespasser get absolutely demolished by security people is way better than seeing them peacefully escorted from the field.

  12. thehollar - Apr 17, 2014 at 11:48 AM

    That’s some Adam Jones Porn right there.

  13. moogro - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:44 PM

    That’s not a tackle. That’s how you pull down a wide receiver from behind. The security guard needed to leave his feet, get horizontal to the ground, place his shoulder into his belly, while simultaneously wrapping his arms around him. That’s how you tackle (people on the field).
