Video: White Sox Lout Rushes Field, Loses Shirt, Wins Our Hearts

The 8-9 White Sox are posting a fairly respectable on-field product in these early goings of the season, even as the club is embracing the rebuild-via-tank mode. But respectability was seemingly the last thing on the mind of one fan's heroically ridiculous act of self-display on Sunday.

The video below—captured during the ninth inning of yesterday's home-game loss against the Cleveland Indians at Guaranteed Rate Field, according to Deadspin—shows a not-altogether-graceful guy named Guy hilariously rush the field. The security guard gets all of his Pauly K jersey, but like a drunken Rasputin, he just triumphs on further sans top—at least for a spell.

If that alone weren't bonkers enough, he apparently held court with the old hot-dog-in-the-hat trick shortly before hitting the field. Watch both clips below and say hello to the South Side's newest lovable (from a distance, we're thinking) folk hero.
