As the clock ticked down on the Pro Bowl on Sunday, four fans decided they were going to become a part of the game by running onto the field. Security took care of the first three, but Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe showed off his muscles by tackling the fourth and also played a part in a hook and lateral with Matt Cassel.
“It really shows that offensive guys can tackle, so give us a chance,” Bowe said, smiling.
Bowe paused, and then added: “That was a crazy game.”
Matt Cassel threw to Bowe, who lateraled to Montell Owens, who then lateraled to center Alex Mack at the NFC 40. Mack rumbled along the left sideline, dodging safety Antrel Rolle at the 5, and found the end zone for the first time since he was a San Marcos (Calif.) High student.
“That was hilarious,” Bowe said. “I always see that on TV, but to be a part of that, that’s what makes this game fun. You get to do stuff you can’t do in the regular season.”
If you watch the broadcast video of the fans running on the field, you can see Bowe celebrating his hit (at the 1:00 mark). Due to the networks refusing to show the chasing of fans, I have yet to see the actual tackle from Bowe but I have a feeling we will see it pop up on YouTube over the next few days.
As much as I like to see idiots running on the field get clobbered and Bowe enjoy himself, I’d rather not see him — or any Chiefs player for that matter — play security guard again. All we need is someone to break a finger while laying a big hit on some doofus.
