The new and improved XFL was christened this past weekend in more ways than one.
In the XFL’s first weekend of games after the first version of the league folded in 2001 after a single season, the very first streaker tried to make his way onto the field. During Sunday’s matchup at MetLife Stadium between the Tampa Bay Vipers and New York Guardians, a fan wearing just his undergarments was tackled to the ground by security guards just before he infiltrated the field.
The fan drew thunderous applause from the crowd as he was wrestled away by security.
It came a week after Instagram model Kelly Kay attempted to streak at Super Bowl 2020 between the Chiefs and 49ers in Miami. Kay was tackled quickly after charging the field with most of her clothes on. The stunt was linked to the website Vitaly Uncensored.
The Guardians went on to win their home opener 23-3, but it’s yet to be seen if they’ll go on a streak of their own.
