Kevin Harlan's Play-By-Play Of A Drunk Streaker On MNF Is Legendary
If you didn't know Kevin Harlan was a genius commentator, you will now.
As a streaker invaded the field at Levi's Stadium during a Monday Night Football game between the LA Rams and the San Francisco 49ers, Harlan gave perhaps the greatest and most hilarious play-by-play call possible for such an event.
The video of his call as been shared thousands upon thousands of times on Twitter since Monday night.

Harlan actually made the call on radio, for broadcaster Westwood One. But the epic narration was later synced with actual footage of the streaker interrupting the football game.
And, just in case you were wondering how the streaker's 15 seconds of fame looked from the stands — since ESPN's cameras didn't show the whole escapade — there's video of that, too, that someone also synced the audio to.

The streaker's run was arguably the most exciting thing that happened during an otherwise uncompetitive game that saw the 49ers rout the Rams 28-0.
The fact that Kevin Harlan went out of his way to make an epic call for something so random only made it that much more exciting.
