Is that guy 'streaking' onto the field in a wheelchair?

News

This is part funniest-thing-I've-seen-all-week, part inspiring.

Below you will find a video of 18-year-old quadriplegic soccer fan Derry Felton. But it's not just any ol' video of Derry. No, this is a video of Derry during his best streaker impersonation after his favorite soccer team, Northampton Town in the UK, scores a goal.

But there's a vital difference: in Derry's case, there's no wild, violent tackle or police brutality. Instead, because Derry is confined to a wheelchair, it's a rather slow, methodical "storming" of the field. And he kept his clothes on. And it's awesome:

Derry described what happened to the Sun:

He said: "I said to my mate 'If they score I will go on the pitch'.

"But I didn't believe that they would. Then they did and it was a bit of a blur really.

"I didn't know what was happening and then I was in the middle of the pitch and I just thought how did I get here?

"It was just a spur of the moment thing and I never thought it would end up on You Tube or make me famous or anything.

"I don't know if I would ever do it again, because it just sort of happened."

Rightly, the team has opted not to press charges.

Here's to you, Derry Felton. Here's to you.
