#Deflategate may be just another NFL ploy to co-opt our attention in the two week layoff before the Super Bowl, but it just so happens to be pretty successful. After all, the hype machine that accompanies the week before the big game is in full swing, and we’re still talking about it. Given the general Patriots hate and the scientific explanations that have emerged, it’s no surprise that a Change.org petition emerged that takes aim at keeping Tom Brady and co. out of the Super Bowl. Still, you might not have expected it to come from Baltimore.
Sure, I’m a fan of planking and tebowing, but when it comes to meaningless, low-tech human spectacle, I prefer good old-fashioned streaking. Fans at the Ravens game on Sunday got a dose of a clothed, caped version of the time-honored tradition. (The Sun‘s coverage of the incident called the man “semi-nude,” but “bare-chested” is more accurate.)
