What would they do to this guy in America?

It would've been embarrassing if he scored on Theodore.

I don't think his teammates would ever let him live that down.

If this guy had gone on the court at an NBA practice session or on the field during MLB batting practice or (God forbid!) on the field during an NFL practice, he would have been smeared all over the landscape by guards - and that's if he's lucky. If any of the players had gotten ahold of this guy - can you imagine Brian Urlacher driving this guy into the ground, or Rasheed Wallace crushing this guy into the seats?

All the Canadiens did was laugh about it, and the police said it "wasn't a police matter." He'd be in jail right now in America.

Lucky guy.



What do you want them to do? The guy didn't really do anything. He took a couple "weak" shots at Theodore. So what.... and if i remember correctly there are hundreds of times people come out of the stands during MLB and NFL games and most of the time they are unharmed... and usually MAYBE spend a few hours in jail. The guy jumped on to the ice and skated around... didn't do any harm and it was during a practice...no big deal.


I agree. Depending on the team and how good he looked, he might have gotten a contract.

I think you guys are high! People come on the field hundreds of times during games? I don't recall that. I remember the guy running onto the field during the Packers/Bengals game this year:

http://msnbc.msn.com/id/9879868/

He got creamed by the guards.

I remember the father/son duo who ran on the field at the White Sox/Royals game, and then another guy did it again later (next season?). Both times they were tackled to the ground, and the father/son duo were visibly pummeled.

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=230415104

I don't get your point that this was "no big deal." How did they know this guy didn't have a gun or a knife or something? There's no way this guy gets off with nothing in the U.S.


It used to happen so often tv stations stopped showing them on the field so it wouldn't encourage more people to run on the field. This guy did it during PRACTICE. It was more in fun than anything. Don't you remember that chick that used to run on the field and give players a kiss? Should she have been gang tackled by the guards? There was obviously no real threat. Just a guy that wanted to skate with his team for a few seconds...



I still can't believe you can only remember 2 incidents of people running onto the field....even in hockey one year a guy jumped the glass and slipped on the ice. he had to be taken out on a stretcher (sp?) Philly fan getting falling in to the Penalty Box when Domi was in there??? Any of this ringing a bell? All this stuff happened in the states (ice guy might have been calgary)....were they sentenced to death? I hope not.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

Maybe there's so much coverage because Theodore actually made the saves :-?

:-o :-o

Actuallty WickedSmaat had it right - this is only getting airtime because Theodore finally stopped someone other than one of his family's loan-sharking clients...

I think you're remembering the 70s and 80s when stalkers and knife-weilding maniacs weren't preying on celebrities and sports heroes as much as today. Remember Martina Hingis and the guy who put her into retirement? That's the kind of thing that went through my mind when I read this story. Morganna was the big-boobed kisser in the 70s and early 80s - you don't see anyone attempting what she did these days.

Your references to hockey incidents may be correct, but I don't follow hockey at all so I have no frame of reference. All I'm saying is, practice or no practice, lack of harmful intent or not, this guy does this in the States today and he's going to get bashed up by guards or players.

I guess what we're finding out by this thread is that I'm more of a cynic than most of the guys here. :-D

In my mind, this guy did a very dumb and dangerous thing, and he's lucky he didn't get his nose beat in for it. I think it's great that he had no ill-will in mind and I also think it's great that the players took it so lightly, but I just don't see that as being the prevailing frame of mind in pro sports in America.

Read Brett Favre's comments about when that guy took the ball out of his hand in the Bengals game. It freaked him out.

Haha...Morgana, The "Kissing Bandit." That lady was like Dolly Parton x 3. 8-o

I saw this on the news tonight; I thought it was pretty funny. You'd wonder how he not only managed to get onto the ice but how he got through with all the equipment and stuff on. :-S

At least Theodore didn't look like an idiot by letting the guy score on him. :-b

Oh, I also remembered the time Brittany Skye came out topless (or maybe fully nude, I forget ;-D) and hugged Jim Furyk during a golf tournament. That guy looks about as dopey as me...wish I'd get that treatment from a porn star. O:-)

I think you are probably talking about Monica Seles and not Martina Hingis. I don't remember anything about Matina Hingis and a fan....but maybe i'm wrong.

And i was born in 1980, i doubt i'm remembering too much from the 70's....or even the 80's for that matter. And i do remember guys running on the field alot over the 15-18 years i do remember. And the only 2 incidents i can recall out of the hundreds of incidents where the people had bad intentions is the Gamboa incident in Chicago and the Seles incident in tennis. Most are just drunken idiots trying to get a few seconds of fame. And yes, most are beat down by the Guards. But what you have to remember about this incident is the Canadiens weren't practicing in the forum...they were practicing at a local arena with fan access. I can't imagine there were too many guards...and when he was taken off the ice he wasn't treated all that kindly by the one guard that was there.


And Mercer, the guy was apparently watching the practice from the stands in full equipment. He then picked his spot and jumped on the ice for his opportunity. The players noticed him in the stands and thought he was just waiting for the practice to be over. It was after all a public rink and he could have been playing shiny after the practice was over.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!
