Lost in the middle of the Patriots thrashing of Arizona on Sunday -- where snow angels were all the rage -- was the fact Patriots linebacker Junior Seau had a run-in of sorts with a fan. This encounter led to the veteran linebacker being taken to the ground by an unruly lout, who was probably under the influence of his friends Jim Beam and Jack Daniels.
I admit, during the course of a football game I've probably screamed quite a few things in the direction of players that I wouldn't have the stones to say to their faces, and, let's be honest, we've all been guilty of that at one time or another. Call it heat of the moment.
One thing I've never thought of doing, however, was running onto the field and attempting to tackle an NFL linebacker. This just goes against all laws of common sense. There are two reasons for this: 1) Doing so would result in me spending an evening in jail, not to mention losing the privilege of purchasing tickets, and 2) It would probably end with something like the video shown above.
