Once Upon A Time, A Drunk Guy Wandered Into A Pit Box At The Daytona 500
February 24 / Jake O'Donnell / SportsGrid
Nothing says "I don't belong here" like a nervous guy constantly looking over his shoulder. Believe me -- I've tried sneaking my way into courtside seats at Madison Square Garden about 600 times. You've got to be cool, loose. I'm not (which is why I've never sat courtside at Madison Square Garden).
You know who is, though? Drunk people.
[Reddit] Brother got very drunk at the Daytona 500 and disappeared from our tailgate. When I texted to ask if he was OK he responded with this. Yes, he is charging his phone. No, he did not have a pit pass.
Here's what an undue sense of confidence brought about by alcohol consumption can get you: very close to very dangerous places. Awesome.
Strangely enough, the guy seen in the video actually saw this post on Reddit and remembered seeing ol' drunk James Bond.
[Reddit] Hey that's me! I remember seeing him! LOL Heavy set and he was wearing a whiteish shirt. We had people all around our pitbox all day. Friends/family so I was unaware who this guy was. All I could tell was he was struggling hearing his phone conversation which was understandable under green flag. Hilarious!
