No collection of great fan sporting disruptions is complete without revisting the historic Chris Chamblis home run of 1976, which propelled the Yankees into the World Series. Circling the bases, Chamblis made one of greatest runs in Yankee Stadium football history. Here, he dodges an attempted tackle by a fan who goes too low on the hit. See how Chamblis is veering right, faking out the dumpy fan in the leisure suit, while other defenders measure their angles. Obviously, Chamblis had blockers - look at the size of this whole - but as he sharply cuts left, causing the man in the trench coat to surrender, while the bearded fan remains in pursuit, a defender at the bottom of the screen sizes him up a head-on hit. Of course, football always had headhunters. Check out the animal athleticism of this fan, leaping like an outfielder over the fence, trying to rob Chamblis' helmet. No security guard can stop a fan like that.
