During the USA vs. Belgium FIFA World Cup game on July 1, a crazy fan ran out onto the field — and he wasn’t even streaking!
The USA vs. Belgium FIFA World Cup game on July 1 featured a little more excitement than normal — a “streaker” in a Superman jersey ran out onto the field before being dragged away (after a surprisingly long time left to run around). Fans took to Twitter to make fun of the guy for wasting all that money to get himself to the World Cup, only to waste the golden opportunity to streak naked across the field!
World Cup ‘Streaker’ Runs Onto Field With Clothes On — Soccer Fans Mock Him
Streaking through a sporting event is a noble, time-honored tradition — an opportunity which one World Cup fan squandered by running out onto the field with his clothes on. Dude — this was your moment! Soccer fans have taken to Twitter to crack wise:

That guy forgot the one key element of streaking. #worldcup

So many gorgeous women at the World Cup and the only streaker to appear is a lad who’s not even ‘streaking’.

If you’re gonna run on the field during a World Cup game the least you can do is streak, make it entertaining for us

I would feel ridiculous streaking the World Cup not in the nude

That was the weakest field streaking ever… If you’re going to do it, go all out. That dude was strolling. #WorldCup

Streaking Through A Sporting Event Can Land You On The Sex Offender Registry
The soccer fans above make a good point — that strange man paid a lot of money to get himself arrested, and to do so with his clothes on. However, while it would have upped the entertainment value for the man to be properly naked, maybe it was wise for him to remain clothed. A man who streaked onto the field at an Aston Villa home game against Manchester City in Feb. 2012 was sentenced to 18 months of community service and was put on the Sex Offenders Registry! All for a £100 bet.
So, HollywoodLifers, were you watching when that crazy person ran onto the field? Should he have gone the Full Monty, or was he wise to keep his stupidity at least partway in check? Let us know!
