Black Cat Runs Onto Field During Monday Night Football, Announcer Kevin Harlan Makes Witty Call [VIDEO]

While most times a game is stopped due to people running onto the field and eventually being escorted off by security, the delay in the game Monday night was caused by a much smaller offender: a small black cat that somehow found its way down to MetLife field.

Kevin Harlan, calling the game for Westwood One Sports, has a history of calling fans running onto the field, so naturally, a similar call with a slightly smaller field intruder would come just as naturally.

“He’s walking to the three…he’s at the two…and the cat is in the CDW Red Zone, CDW, the people who get…now a policeman, a state trooper has come on the field, and the cat runs into the end zone! That is a touchdown!”

ESPN’s commentators also weighed in on the spectacle:

“Look at his change in direction,” Booger McFarland said as the critter darted around the end zone.

“He’s got great lateral movement,” Joe Tessitore added.

Although fans are often annoyed at the interruption of a game, especially when it is at the hands of another spectator, most were in agreement that the cat incident provided some comical relief during a game that was otherwise a large blowout.

The only one who wasn’t particularly a fan of the cat was Cowboys owner Jerry Jones who said, “he was so mean, I didn’t even want to look at him,” and “I know he was looking at me the whole time he was out there.”

Saquon Barkley, the Giants’ running back, offered a similar sentiment, “What I didn’t like is, we were going good and it stopped us,” he said. “How did a black cat get on the field?”

On the other hand, the Dallas Cowboys absolutely dismantled their division-rival New York Giants, handing them a 37-18 beat-down and knocking them to 2-7 on the year.
