"What the hell is this knucklehead doing on the field?"
That, or some other type of of annoyed comment is usually the common sentiment among many whenever some presumably drunken fan takes the field (usually wearing next to nothing) to streak during the middle of a sporting event.
Sometimes, apparently, there's a little more to the story than just an overserved, overzealous and usually overweight fan trying to become the center of attention.
The Patriots and Ravens were interrupted on Sunday night by a streaker, but it was a streaker with good intentions.
Mark Harvey stormed the field on Sunday night, wearing a cape, a baseball cap and briefs, delighting the M&T Bank Stadium crowd. He was also speaking out against bullying.
The streaker, who also crashed an Orioles game this season with a similar message and similar dance moves, apparently does this to raise awareness for bullying. He even has a website devoted to spreading the message.
"Bullying is a real problem in America, and I am here to stop it," Harvey says on his website. "We all have super powers and it's time to put them to use. I'm talking about the power we have to make friends, stand-up for one another, and ultimately make 'bullying' just another word in the dictionary."
The Patriots have announced that both DT Brandon Deaderick (ankle) and CB Alfonzo Dennard (hamstring) are out for Sunday night’s game in Baltimore.
The two were downgraded after appearing on Friday’s injury report as questionable. Both were limited in practice Thursday and Friday.
Deaderick was used sparingly in the past two games to spell Vince Wilfork and Kyle Love on...
The moralizing and pontificating began as soon as Football Night In America cameras captured New England coach Bill Belichick running and grabbing a member of the officiating crew's arm in the chaotic aftermath of Sunday's Patriots-Ravens game.
Media giddily tweeted: Get ready for a FedEx envelope, Billy.
Tony Dungy lectured from his bully pulpit.
Merits of a fine and...
Sunday Night Football has brought us some crazy plays and some God awful officiating. We’ve seen Bill Belichick mouth visual expletives and also the crowd in Baltimore gave the loudest expletive chant I’ve ever heard in all of my years watching sports. The Baltimore Raven faithful are not happy with the calls that the New England Patriots are getting and they have good reason...
Torrey Smith of the Baltimore Ravens came into his match-up on Sunday night against The New England Patriots with a heavy heart after learning the night before that his brother had tragically passed away in a motorcycle accident.

The New England Patriots came into the Inner Harbor to face the Baltimore Ravens in a Sunday night matchup on national television. It was a swing game for both teams as they each stood at 1-1 and with a win they would sit a top their respective division. Plus it would give one team a head to head advantage that could be important come playoff time in the AFC.
With the Ravens...

As Brandon Spikes already phrased more eloquently than we ever could, the replacement officials were as bad as they have been all year during Sunday night’s game between the Patriots and Ravens. Their performance resulted in 70,000-plus fans reaching their boiling point toward the end of the game when John Harbaugh received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Harbaugh claims he...
