The Streaker Inside

In my post “An Unusual Bucket List”  I listed some things that I would like to do but never will.  I have more on my list than I wrote about in that post, so I decided to reveal another one now.

I have always marveled at the slightly overweight, slightly hairy, middle-aged man, who decides to strip down to the suit he was born in, and go sprinting across the field at a big sporting event.  He bobs, weaves, and waves to the crowd before finally being run down by an equally overweight but fully dressed security guard.

I have no idea why this sounds like fun to me.  I can only imagine the adrenalin and nerves as the anticipation builds, but I don’t think people do this for the adrenalin.  The true adrenalin junkies are busy jumping off buildings or surfing 30 foot waves.  The streaker does it for different reasons.  He is an entertainer.  He does it for the thrill of thrilling the crowd!  Sure the TV might not be able to show it, but the crowd lucky enough to be at the event, love it!  Streakers have performed at football, hockey, basketball, and soccer games.  They have brought their magic to the world of golf, tennis, and even billiards.  They have even been known to be “best in show” at dog shows!

It is too bad we have to arrest the streakers.  They are just doing their part to give the ticket holders value for their money.  Think about it.  If you were at sporting event and a naked homely man was running across the field, court, or ice, wouldn’t it bring a smile to your face?  Wouldn’t it give you a good story to share with your friends who didn’t get to go to the game?  How can these people be criminals when they are spreading so much joy?

Yes I know that sometimes streakers are female, but I don’t think they are as good because many people in the crowd actually want to see her naked.  A high quality streaker is a man who no one wants to see naked, but for some reason they can’t look away.

OK so I don’t really want to be a streaker.  I don’t have the physique or intrinsic desire to entertain at that level.  I just wanted a reason to include this picture in my blog!
