Video: Streaker at Phillies-Cardinals game

Sure, a fan running onto the field during a game is nothing new. But a fan pulling off a full monty dash across the field? That's usally reserved for soccer matches, right?

Sure, a fan running onto the field during a game is nothing new. But a fan pulling off a full monty dash across the field? That's usally reserved for soccer matches, right?

During Thursday night's matchup between the Phillies and the St. Louis Cardinals, one fan got into the spirit (spirits?) and decided that he wanted to show off the huge Disney-themed tattoo on his left side.

The best way to do that is to go streaking, right up the quad and into Busch Stadium.

Oddly enough, it was a game between these two teams that featured one of the most infamous fan-on-field episodes in recent memory, when a fan was tasered after running onto the field at Citizens Bank Park. And who can forget about the fan that ran right between home plate and the pitchers mound during the 2011 NLDS between the Phillies and Cardinals?

The suspect, Collin J. Grundstrom, 22, of Jefferson City, Mo., "appeared to have been drinking," according to stadium security.

So why did he do it (aside from the liquid courage)? Apparently he lost a bet.

At least he's a man of his word...

Ladies and gentlemen, what you are about to see may disturb you. Consider yourselves warned.
