Romney leads Obama in poll of fans who run onto field before NLDS games

It’s Oct. 10 and the Giants are still playing baseball, which means life is good for me. Life is not so good for this Mitt Romney supporter, however, who was tackled by police and taken to baseball jail after running onto the field with a Romney campaign sign at Great American Ballpark Tuesday night.

Figures that a first fully-clothed streaker would be a Romney fan.

Rives Grogan was arrested and charged with trespassing and resisting arrest, according to court documents.

It was Game 3 of the National League Divisional Series between the Giants and Reds, and Cincy starting pitcher Homer Bailey had this to say before the Grogan made his mad dash:

“I will probably be somewhat oblivious to [distractions] … unless there’s a streaker running across.”

Barry Zito goes tonight for the Giants, and we SF fans are hoping for Grogan to get bailed out before the game. Gotta keep the mojo rolling.

UPDATE: According to the Associated Press, Mr. Grogan is a minister at the New Beginnings Christian Fellowship Church in Los Angeles, and has quite a record of public demonstration with anti-abortion and anti-Obama messages. See 10th paragraph in this story.

    Romney also leads President Obama in how to fix the economic side of this country. “Hope” and “Yes we can” just doesn’t cut it.

    Looks like Governer Romneys win in the first debate had more unintended consequences than we could have imagined. After his arrest Grogan said to a reporter “huh? Streaking involves nudity?”

    Of course it’s an old white guy.
