Sometimes, when it’s your birthday and you’ve had a few drinks, you start thinking a few wild thoughts. You might seriously consider getting up onstage to perform a rousing rendition of “Tubthumping” at a karaoke bar, or make your move on that hot girl with the Adam’s apple. Or, you might throw on a cape and some Batman undies and run full speed across a baseball field on opening day. Whichever.

Mark Harvey says he just wanted to make people laugh and get the crowd fired up, which he did to great effect, but officials weren’t so amused. He has now been banned for life from Camden Yards after being tackled by security guards and arrested. All charges against him were dropped, however.

“They said all the charges were dropped, which I was surprised,” Harvey said. “I asked them twice, like, are you sure?”

They’re sure, alright, but it will cost you a lifetime of Orioles games. Nice Underoos, though.

He’s not the streaker Baltimore wants, but he is the streaker that Baltimore needs. http://t.co/oi9aWu1I via @HardballTalk(image) 21 hours ago via Tweet Button ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

    They should never have banned Batman, even though he is just a Batman immitator… He did pretty well, even without the hockey pads…

    Meanwhile my Dodgers are 5-1, streaker less, and off to our best start in 13 years. I wouldn’t trade you places. Uh uh.

    First of all you need to check your Webster’s for the definition of streaking; i.e.: running naked, sans any and all clothing. Mark may not have been the ideal promotion the Orioles executive staff may have wanted, but let’s face it, they’re always right! Get over your overpaid underworked self-important narcicistic self-centered self-rightous holier-than-thou uptight stick-in-the-mud selves and appreciate that you have fans willing to pay your outrageous admission prices and show up for a game to be played!!!!!!!!
