D.C. Sports Bog has Sunday's Arizona immigration law protest at Nationals Park covered fairly comprehensively in words, pictures, and video already, but we felt the need to chime in and post a video shot from a different angle. Generally speaking, there's nothing funny about fans running on the field at a baseball game (unless it involves Phillies fans and tasers). But the first ~15 seconds of the above video are pretty funny if you like footage of overweight stadium security guards chasing after fans. The first Nats Park security guard in the video here has no business running -- it's funny in the same way that watching Dmitri Young run the bases used to be funny, which was both funny and sad. Then it gets annoying, right around the time the two protesters botch a running high-five -- and then you're wishing the Nationals Park security guards were packing tasers.
This isn't the first time fans with similar interests protested at Nationals Park at game pitched by Stephen Strasburg -- you'll remember that back on June 19th, with Stephen Strasburg pitching and President Obama in attendance to support his beloved White Sox, protesters unfurled a large banner in right field that was eventually yanked down after a few minutes by fans in the deck below.
Memo to the protestors: Bud Selig isn't listening: he's not moving the 2011 All-Star game.
