The Prince Charles Polo Match Streaker

Three streakers made waves at an Australia-England polo match attended by Prince Charles on the 26th July. BBC reports that the three emerged nude from the grandstand toward the end of the match, with one being chased by security guards and getting away.

25,000 people attended the match. Charles watched the whole thing from the royal box. England went on to win.

England team captain Luke Tomlinson later said it was not the first time he had played in a match interrupted by naked intruders.

“You are so focused on the game you hardly notice. It brings a bit of humour in and the crowd seem to enjoy it,” he said.

Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for the club said: “I think it is the hot weather and the Pimms to blame. These things happen.”

Now that’s the kind of laid back attitude from authorities that we like to see. Pimms is obviously the thing to be drinking when naked lunatics make an appearance.

Here’s a Youtube clip from the Sunrise show here in Australia, including the usual crap comments from the hosts.

Andrew Symonds Vs Streaker, One Day Cricket 4 March

When a streaker ran out onto the field at the 2nd One Day Cricket Final in Brisbane, he didn’t expect to run into Andrew Symonds, who shoulder-barged him to the ground.

I saw it happen and was quite surprised to see Channel 9 actually show this footage. Normally they refuse to give any close ups to streakers in case it encourages them.

Note… I’m trying to get the Youtube video to work on this, it’s giving me a bit of trouble.

Mascot Tackles Streaker: Full Story

This is all over the web and kinda old but I thought I’d post it here to welcome in the New Year, since I’ve been so thoroughly neglecting Streakerama lately.

The incident happened in 2002. Thestreaker, Sabaean Myers, appeared at a soccer match between Burnley Football Club and another team. The mascot is Burnley’s Bertie Bee, who went on to be interviewed on TV show They Think Its All Over about the whole thing.

According to this report, Sabaean was given 2 years probation and ordered to pay costs of 65 pounds. Burnley banned him from their games for life, a move that he disputed.

A letter writer argued that it was Bertie who should be banned for performing a dangerous high tackle.

Sabaean planned to streak for charity a few weeks later (and was involved in the Channel 4 Streakers documentary that I appeared in) but the friend he wanted to support died before his plans came to fruition.

Somerville Naked Quad Run

Yes yes, I know I haven’t posted much lately, even though there’s been heaps of streaking events happening. I’ll try to keep up… after Christmas and New Year is over, OK?

Anyway, here’s a video of a bunch of students streaking around the quad at Tufts University in Massachusetts, something they do every year. This time it was on December 10. And there’s been a bit of a kerfuffle over the student newspaper posting this video on their site. Apparently some Nigel-No-funs think that people’s privacy has been invaded by the posting of the video.

I’m thinking that they’re forgetting the streaker’s rule – once you’re out there naked, you’re out there.

Naked But For A Green Wig

Here’s a streaker at McMahon stadium in Calgary, Canada, running through a football game wearing only a green wig. He jumped two fences to get onto the field.

According to the Calgary Sun:

Despite the roar of an approving crowd, security staff failed to follow him as he travelled through the endzone, climbed a chain-link fence and then a large metal wall before disappearing into parking lot trees.

Not only did it provide, by far, the most entertaining moment of the day, it also marked a feat no one thought possible: Escaping McMahon Stadium naked without being caught.

He did, however, get arrested by three police in the parking lot.

Graduation Day Streaker

A 17 year old made waves at his school’s graduation ceremony when he streaked across the football field, causing all the graduating seniors to cheer madly.

Unfortunately he’s also ended up in juvenile detention center because of it.

KVOA reports:

The 17 year old junior at Catalina Foothills High School raced into the limelight last Thursday, stripping down to his jock strap and racing across the football field during the graduation ceremony.

Cameron put the moves on a couple of sheriff’s deputies trying to tackle him. But his athletic director caught Cameron just before he got over a fence.

The high school kid received a standing ovation from the graduating seniors and now he’s semi-famous.

Here’s the video on Youtube – unfortunately I can’t embed it.
