Johan Santana's no-hitter was, understandably, an exciting time for Mets fans. It's been 8,020 games. The Mets have been waiting for their first no-hitter for what must have felt like an eternity. And Santana finally brought one home.
It was enough to excite the fans in attendance and those watching around the world. Unfortunately, one fan took a beating when he spontaneously decided to rush the field and join the celebration. The man tried to jump into the dogpile!
He does kind of blend in here:
Well, except for the jorts, of course.
And then it all goes wrong.
It didn't work, obviously. I mean, it was a good attempt, and the fact it took two security guards to drop him says something. But it just didn't work.
Edit: On second thought, he did make it into the pile (second angle), soooo ... maybe it was a success with a painful ending.
