Heaven needed a gate crasher R.I.P. Barry Bremen

  1. Fun loving guy died of cancer at 64. I thought he was older.

    I've thought about Barry Breman a few times, wondered what became of him.

    Can you imagine someone like him attempting stuff like that in this day of heightened security?

    I remember a clip of him sneaking on at an all star game and Tommy Lasorda running out to the outfield and yelling, "Get the hell out of here. Who do you think you are?"

    The one stunt I remember was when he snuck onto the sideline at Texas Stadium dressed as a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader and tried to line up and dance with them.

    Security beat the shit out of him on camera.

    EDIT: Dammit!

    No way he could pull those stunts today, right?

    I think he could.

    Adam Dunn's been impersonating a professional baseball player for half a season.

    I don't know if he could sneak up to accept an Emmy but perhaps he could. With sports ones, I think he'd still be able to. I mean, it's not like security's so tight that people can't sneak into the action these days, judging by the 1,875 youtube videos of people running onto baseball and football fields. And if he had a little accomplice among a player or two it'd be even easier.

    If two D.C. nitwits can beat the Secret Service and crash a frickin White House dinner, then I think someone with Barry's ingenuity could still get into a layup line.

    The classic story about Bremen involves the time he got onto the field during BP for the MLB All-Star Game and began shagging flies. He introduced himself to a few players, including Cleveland journeyman reliever Sid Monge, by saying, "Hi, I'm Barry Bremen. I'm an imposter." Monge's reply: "So am I."

    If he was doing this stuff today they'd give him a reality show - in addition to taser burns.
    He and Morganna would have made a good couple. Hell, Morganna herself made a good couple.

    He was a fun story at a time when the stunts he pulled wouldn't get a guy at the very least, Tasered, as is the case now.
