Listen in on Kevin Harlan’s Super Bowl radio call of ‘streaker’

The veteran broadcaster doesn’t hold back on his “analysis” of a fan who ran on the field during Super Bowl 55 at Raymond James Stadium.

C’mon, admit it. One of your guilty pleasures is seeing what happens to those who run onto the field during a game, with anyone over 60 begging for a repeat of Colts linebacker Mike Curtis annihilating a fan in 1971. (Look it up, it’s worth it).

With about five minutes left in Super Bowl 55 on Sunday night, a man ran onto the field at Raymond James Stadium, racing past the Bucs and Chiefs as they lined up to run a play. He eluded security before being tackled at the goal line near the south end zone.

The man, later identified as Yuri Andrade, 31, of Boca Raton, is facing a misdemeanor trespassing charge, according to a Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office arrest report.

The CBS broadcast team told us of the delay and why, though as is usually the case, didn’t show it.

And while the fan’s antics certainly aren’t worth your attention, Kevin Harlan’s radio call is.

The veteran play-by-play announcer was working the game for Westwood One radio and gave a humorous call of the “action.”

The video, shared to Twitter by Timothy Burke via Ryan Lacey, has been viewed more than 1.5 million times.
