Braves' Matt Diaz trips creature in red bodysuit, gives fans reason to rejoice regardless of loss

The Atlanta Braves' away game last night versus the Philadelphia Phillies was interrupted during the seventh inning when a fan wearing a red bodysuit and mask stormed the field.

UPDATE: The previous version was pulled. Let's see how long this one stays up:



Diaz told the Associated Press after the game, which the Braves lost 3-1: ""I wanted to spear him so bad, but I didn't want to hurt him or get hurt."
