Banned on the run

No wonder people in other countries scoff at us.  Here in America, we seem to have so much free time that there is always time for this Mark Harvey fellow to don some sort of wacky outfit and dart around on the playing field where athletes are trying to ply their trades.

In April, he jumped onto the baseball diamond at Oriole Park at Camden Yards and ran around in his Batman outfit, before being caught and banned from the ballpark for life.

On Sunday night, in the second quarter of the Ravens/Patriots game, he was on the football field, darting about in Batman shorts and a cape, with some sort of "Don't be a bully, be a superhero" slogan written on his chest.

He says that he did all this in the cause of stopping bullying.  That's funny.  For one thing, he is just jumping on a worthy cause espoused by Ray Rice and other people who have legitimate reason to run along the gridiron at M&T Bank Stadium.  Bullying is a nefarious trend, and should be stopped.

For another thing, you can't tell me that this clown from Anne Arundel County cares one whit about bullying.  No.  Not at all.  What he does care about is bullying a crowd of 71,000 football fans, a nationwide television audience and, most tragically, Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth, into being denied their football game while he cavorts childishly.

He's now banned for life from the football stadium as well.  I would suggest that he try running barefoot on some hockey rink next.  Unless he's afraid that he'd get cold feet.
