Super Bowl Streaker Darts onto Field, Gets Tackled by Security

Would it really be the Super Bowl without a player on a streak? (Yeah)

On Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs won the 2024 Super Bowl.

Many watched the game. Others watched the commercials or the halftime show. Many first-time viewers were actually there just to see Taylor Swift’s content.

There was one image that wasn’t on anyone’s Super Bowl menu: a player, or possibly more than one, running onto the field.

The Super Bowl had a streak on the field

Around 6:14 PT on Sunday, a player was thrown onto the field during Super Bowl LVII.

Allegiant Stadium is not the first sports field to have a streaker. Presumably it won’t be the last.

Immediately, social media was filled with live viewers reporting on what they were watching in real time. Some of them were journalists or celebrities, and others were simply people watching the game.

Is that a streak? Numerous Super Bowl videos show an uninvited guest on the field.

In addition to the reports, social networks were immediately filled with videos of the player.

(And with debates about whether this qualifies as a true “streak”)

Video from multiple angles shows the individual running onto the field from near the Chiefs end zone.

This is (part of) the reason why the Super Bowl has security

Of course, security immediately pursued the attacker, tackling the individual near the 10-yard mark on the field.

Naturally, security escorted the player off the field.

Some viewers believe the video showed a second streak, while others argue there was no streak.

Twitter users were quick to share multiple angles of the Super Bowl intruder.

But is this really a streak?

Social media users pointed out that the individual appeared to be wearing pants.

Running with the parts on is running.

Taking to the field in only your underwear could possibly be scratched, in a kind of PG.

But stripes with pants and without a shirt?

Is that stripesor just… run around without permission?

Going topless to a soccer game is not unusual among men who love sports. Some are even painted for the occasion.

“Oh, we have people in the field!” Tony Romo said as he commented on the streak.

“Oh my God, we do it!” Jim Nantz agreed. “We have a streak in each other, well…”

Romo described: “There’s a partial streak… Take off your shirt.”

“Partial streak, yes,” Nantz confirmed.

It was then that Romo announced, with an air of resignation and determination: “But we can’t talk about that.”

At that point, the broadcast went to commercial. Maybe that was for the best.
