One Baltimore Ravens fan found a way to become “online famous” or soon will be. Well, maybe it’s more infamy than fame. Severe Thunderstorms, extremely dangerous winds, and yes, even tornado warnings rolled through Chicago and the entire state of Illinois. It delayed the Chicago Bears vs Baltimore Ravens game a couple hours. They even had to cut off beer sales during the weather delay at Soldier Field.
But not before this Ravens fan found enough liquid courage to run onto the empty playing field.
Most NFL fans at this game were evacuated to the stadium concourse. Again this was a serious, dangerous weather event as tornados hit Washington, IL hard. However, none of that deterred this Ravens fan, clad in a Terrell Suggs jersey, from running onto the field. Apparently he was talked into it by some bemused Bears fans. Good times.
Obviously, the good times didn’t last long as this Ravens fan was caught and tackled. And probably had a trip out of Soldier Field and into a meeting with Chicago’s finest. So yeah the Ravens fan got what he deserved in the end.
By the way, the Bears won the game on a field goal in overtime.
