Naked Man Thrown In Crowd!
Submitted By: Paul Beck

Maybe not so strange as amazing. At age ten, my father took me to a game between the Hungarian National Team, and the Swedish National Team. During the course of the game, the Swedish team scored, and an elated fan jumped the fence heading for the field; ripping his clothes as he went.

One of the officers stationed around the field turned his dog loose on the man. He was subdued just long enough for the officer to club his head, haul him back to the edge, and throw him back in the crowd. The officer resumed his postion as if nothing had happened. To my knowledge, that same fan did not see the rest of the game. For all I know, he may not have ever seen a game again - he didn't seem to wake-up!

Talk of fanatical!
