    The Streaker at the Sun Valley Ice Show

    I hadn't seen a thread about this.

    http://www.mtexpress.com/index2.php?ID=2005137631

    My favorite part -
    The streaker has been described as a man in his mid-20s, but no one interviewed for this story could provide a description of his face.

    Haha, I'd be laughing but if I were a child I'd be mortified.

    Mid 20's, that's pretty big. Like a baby's arm holding an orange.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    I posted a shorter version of the news in Evan't news and update thread a week ago.

    The streaker surely attracted a lot more media exposure than the real star of the show. Maybe it's just like what Donald Trump said, "There's no such thing as Over Exposure".

    From what I remember about the SV rink is that he had a way to go to get to the condos! I can't believe he didn't slip on the ice in flip flops. Musta been a curler

    I had to laugh that they included a definition of the word "streaker" in the article.

    I was there. In my area, the parents were mortified, but the little girls were laughing hysterically and snapping pictures. It was funny, but not an especially pretty sight. Just glad no one fell (since there were a lot of people on the ice at that time) and that security did not chase him onto the ice.

    Boy, he must have ran pretty slow across the ice on flip flops. That means that everyone in the audience had plenty of time to see everyting. EVERYTHING.

    I think if I had been there, I would have been mildly disgusted myself. I figured people would take pictures and videos. That's why I'm a little surprised that no one has a description of his face.

    I guess no one was looking at his face. What about the pix the little girls snapped? No one got a face shot? lmao

    Sounds like the parents and children I know. PML.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    A streaker? What is this 1974???

    I could understand it as a publicity stunt if it were a major event, like Worlds. But a Sun Valley Ice show? That seems rather random.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    Although a streaker appearing in the ice show is seen as a laughing matter, it´s also very serious. It definetely shows a very lacking security in the event. And the streaker was not even caught, oh my. Yes, this time it was just a funny streaker running onto the ice, but what about if it had been somebody with a gun?

    No type of security measure could weed out potential streaker at any event. What would you be screening for? It think it's harmless anyway, provided of course the streaker doesn't directly intefere with a skater's performance. For more serious things like carrying a gun, I would hope that the big event venues have the customers go through some sort of checkpoints before entering the venues.

    Oi, I didn't realize the streaker ran out on the ice right in the middle of the group performance. One of the male skaters could've tackle him.

    The rink in Sun Valley (for shows) is outdoors. I haven't been there in years, but there was never any security when I used to go every summer. Maybe things have changed since then, and they now establish some kind of perimeter around the area through which everyone must pass, but the layout of the area isn't exactly conducive to security.

    And there is a big cluster of condos within a hundred yards of the rink.

    My old dance partner was there to judge for the tests, and was planning on going to the show. Can't wait to hear his take on it.

    There was no real security at this event, but this show attracts a mild-mannered crowd, even for figure skating. Not sure what the girls captured on film, most likely a butt (given where we were seated). Those seated on the sides of the rink got more of a frontal view, which is just not something you want to see on ice. My guess is that this guy won a bet with someone, but there is not enough alcohol or money in the world for me to subject a crowd to that kind of visual. Honestly, it reminded me of some kind of "Pee-wee Herman" sort of stunt -- startling at the time, but not anything one would feel they missed out on if they were on a coffee run at the time.

    Where is the line drawn between streaker and stalker? Remember the attack on Monica Seles? The potentials frighten me.

    Clothing.

    (Sorry, I couldn't resist. I know you were making a serious point.)
