Video of the Week

Stuart Barefoot

This week's video of the week is an oldie but a goody. By now, you've hopefully seen the video of a man named Jungle bird crashing Webb Simpson's victory speech after winning the U.S Open. Tennis has had it share of fans getting a little too close and personal with players. Who could forget the flag waving menace at the French Open in 2009? This was ultimately a harmless incident as Federer went on to win the match and the title. While this behavior is understandably frowned upon, this fan did demonstrate his athletic prowess when he dodged three security guards, sprinted across court and leaped over the net in order to evade capture before he was finally brought down. That's harder than it looks. In case you haven't seen it in a while or haven't yet, you can enjoy it here.
