Mets' Citi Field Gets its First Streaker


New York's brand new Citi Field was christened with its first streaker on Tuesday night. He had a personal cameraman with him, of course, who posted a mini-doc on YouTube.

Watch it (possibly nsfw), AFTER THE JUMP...

UPDATE: The streaker, Craig Coakley, faces up to a year in jail and civil penalties of up to $5,000. Queens DA: "As the defendant sadly learned yesterday, one ‘streak’ equals three strikes and you’re out — out of the ballpark and on your way to the courthouse to face arraignment on criminal charges."

  1. Run nigger Run???? I had to play it back to be sure that's what he said. And here's his excuse on youtube: "LISTEN PEOPLE--GET OVER IT!! The word "Nigga" is commonly used by MY generation as a greeting--like dude and bro.." BULLSHIT!!!

  2. Yeah, would we have posted and liked that if he said "Run Faggot, run!"??? I don't think so.

    Sad that they had to include it.

  3. Hey Jace -

    You're SO right! Ignorance breeds ignorance. And always remember, MarioFL - you can't legislate stupidity!

  5. I know this is a long quote, but I always think of it when ever I see anything about streakers:

    "The human race is an unfair and stupid competition. A lot of the runners don't even get decent sneakers or clean drinking water. Some people are born with a massive head start, every possible help along the way and still the referees seem to be on their side. It's not surprising some people have given up competing altogether and gone to sit in the grandstand, eat junk food and shout abuse. What we need in this race is a lot more streakers." - Banksy

  7. People need to seriously get over themselves. BFD that a guy chooses to run naked and make a fool out of himself.

  8. I think a $100-$1000 penalty would be about right. Jail time is a complete waste of resources.

  9. Putting someone in jail costs about $45-50k a year.

    This guy wasn't violent, he was just silly and wanted his 15 minutes. Small fine, a night in the pokey and who gives a fuck?

  11. What's wrong with sayin, "Run, nigga, run"? It wasn't racist or directed at anyone black (or white) in a negative way. Besides, when blacks stop saying nigga, then whites can.

  12. Offense is offense.

    Just because some African Americans say it doesn't give others freedom to do the same.

    It's hurtful either way.

    I assume the guy in the video didn't mean it as a racial slur. But it still hit me like one.

  13. Oh Jason shut up.

    I do have to say that people of all races say it now. We can thank Snoop, BET and all the rest for that little development.
