Browns streaker “caught up in the excitement”

Rams Browns Football AP

Somewhere between Brandon Weeden’s performance and the weiner dog races, Anthony Saveriano realized pants were more than he could bear.

Saveriano pleaded not guilty to criminal trespass and public indecency after he was caught streaking at last Thursday’s Browns-Lions preseason game.

“He’s a good kid,” attorney Fred Crosby told Rachel Dissell of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “He got caught up in the excitement.”

Crosby told the Plain Dealer that alcohol was not the major factor in Saveriano’s decision to drop trou and sprint across a football field, but that “there just hasn’t been that much excitement at the Browns game in a while.”

The 20-year-old streaker, who came to court with his mom, declined to comment. He will appear in court on Sept. 10 to be screened for a first offender’s program.

The good news is the rest of the Browns exhibition schedule is on the road. Otherwise, the thought of Jordan Palmer and Trent Edwards taking on his beloved Browns might have been more than he could take, and more than anyone needed to see.

    It was an exhibition game. I can see how he got confused about what that meant.

    Maybe he wanted to join in on the weiner dog race.

    “oh yes they call him the streak! Fastest thing on two feet. He’s as proud as he can be of his anatomy, he’s gonna give us a peek….”

    Streaking is one of the dumbest attention grabbing moves. That said, why aren’t there any instances of aspiring supermodels doing it?

    Now we know why Lebron “took his talents to South Beach”.

    How on earth could he plead not guilty?

    “Saveriano pleaded not guilty to criminal trespass and public indecency after he was caught streaking at last Thursday’s Browns-Lions preseason game.”

    Back in the 70’s, when people still had spirit, streaking was laughed at and wasn’t considered “criminal trespassing” and “public indecency.”

    I mean really, “criminal”?

    SMH.

    He’s now earned the nickname Skidmark following the public showing of his Browns streak.

    Upon reviewing the video evidence, it was determined that he might be a distant cousin to Brent Favre. Nothing to be proud of, that’s for sure.

    Best hit of the night was the one J. Bell made on naked runner. Two shots and dude kept running to the tunnel. Cleveland’s finest got to tune this loser up and hope it was rough.

    Hey, my friend was a row up from this guy. It is an idiotic move. I wonder what kind of criminal charges there are relating to this. It is attention whoring at its finest. Supremely dumb.

    Your 2013 Cleveland Browns, feel the excitement!

    Guy is an idiot, but this is a classic headline.

    Wow…Weeden looks good in a preseason game and their fans start streaking.

    I guess it doesn’t take much when your team has been that bad for that long.

    “The 20-year-old streaker, who came to court with his mom, declined to comment”

    A guy who comes to court with his mom should have no comment.

    I hate when fans jump on the field and I always hope they get crippled by a player. But for some reason the fact that this guy was “streaking” all 70’s style somehow makes it ok. I think that should be the new unofficial rule. No running onto the field unless you take all your clothes off first. That’d be a good deterrent!

    And he will forever be remembered for his shortcomings.

    Screened for first offender’s program He should be screened for drug abuse or mental disorder.

    I find these streakers entertaining, but these days it could land you in a world of poop. He probably won’t do any jail time, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he ended up on a sex offender list that will create many hurdles for the rest of his life.

    There was excitement at a Browns game?
