At BadJocks, we love streakers! They’re the unexpected spice in the otherwise bland sports stew. And, over the years, we’ve shown our share of pictures and videos of streakers, but never to the point where anything, uh, “important” is showing.
Apparently the kids at the East Carolina student newspaper (we think it’s called The Daily Regret) which decided it was best to show not one, but three pictures of a male streaker from the EC v. Southern Miss game last weekend. In each one, John Sieglinger of Raleigh (who has been charged with misdemeanor trespassing and indecent exposure) gets to show off his package. Why get so graphic? According to editor Caitlin Hale the paper felt that because the primary audience is made up of students, they should have access to the “unedited and factual photos” of the streaker. Hale went on to say that she thought that while while the images may be seen as offensive to some, “the photos were not meant to be seen as sexually suggestive or insulting, but instead an accurate account of Saturday’s events.”
Yes. Because there’s no way you could get a sense of what it was like to see a grown man streaking without seeing his junk. Our journalistic hats are off you to you East Carolina!
By now, now, most of you have seen the video of University of Arizona student Jace “Was That Wrong?” Lankow running onto the field during the UCLA/Arizona game last Friday night dressed as a referee, then stripping off his clothes and streaking the Tuscon crowd. Lankow is now telling cops he did it to pad his resume to get on the TV show Wipeout, but failed to factor in that he might not be able to participate on the show once he’s charged with the class six felony for criminal impersonation. (Of a referee, not a man, we assume.)
If convicted Lankow will get plenty of chances to be chased around the prison yard naked by burly men as the crime carries a prison sentence of a year and a half. Probably what those evil produces are Wipeout were hoping would happen.
English soccer fan/streaker Darren “It Was Cold” Walker won a $160 bet with his drunken mates in August when he ran naked onto the field during a Accrington Stanley vs Port Vale game, managed to dodge a few players and then did push-ups in front of cheering fans. He also earned a three-year ban from ALL soccer games in that country. Wait, what’s his punishment then?
