|Golden Palace (www.GoldenPalace.com) streaker Mark Roberts kept up his prolific record of public nudity in the cause of online gambling at Yesterdays’ Super Bowl. Upstaging the other flasher at the game, namely one miss Janet Jackson’s, Robert’s streak was in the vain of good humor rather than MTV’s sensationalism. |
The game’s second-half kickoff was delayed when Roberts, dressed as a referee, ran onto the field, kicked off all but a G-string and shoes, and began dancing at the 30-yard line.
New England linebacker Matt Chatham tackled Mark Roberts as he ran from security personnel. Roberts, bearing the Golden Palace logo on his chest, was hogtied and carried off the field by police. He was charged with criminal trespass and public intoxication.
Roberts told police he’s from Liverpool, England, and that his occupation is “international streaker”.
Meanwhile, CBS was apologizing for even more unplanned exposed flesh during the half-time show, when Justin Timberlake tore off part of Janet Jackson’s top, exposing her breast.
'CBS deeply regrets the incident,' spokeswoman LeslieAnne Wade said after the network received several calls about the show. Whether they were complaints or commendations was not noted.
Wade said CBS officials attended rehearsals of the halftime show all week, 'and there was no indication any such thing would happen. The moment did not conform to CBS’ broadcast standards and we would like to apologize to anyone who was offended.'
Congratulations to the New England Patriots, who beat the Carolina Panthers by 32-29.
