Some fans are calling it the best moment of the game.
A New Mexico woman is getting some worldwide attention for streaking the NFL Pro Bowl game on NBC television Sunday afternoon.
But let’s get one thing clear. Katrina Torres didn’t get naked. She did her streaking in a bikini top and gym shorts and a super hero cape made out of a New Mexico state flag!
NBC cameras caught Katrina jumping down from the end zone grandstand after Jordan Cameron caught a touchdown pass. She blitzed through celebrating players, attempting a chest-bump here and there. It was a nifty piece of broken field running, until security officers chased her down and escorted her off the field.
“People are saying what I did was inspiring,” Katrina posted on her Facebook page. “I don’t think it was that much. Inspiring? Not really. Awesome? You bet your ass!”
Katrina wrote that she did it for her cousin Gary, who is unable to walk following a motorcycle accident a couple of years ago. She gives thanks to team captain and NFL Hall-of-Famer Deion Sanders, who told police he would pay her bail if they arrested her. They didn’t – and Katrina is free to fly her flag all over Hawaii.
Katrina Torres is a 2008 graduate of Cibola High School and a 2012 graduate of Hawaii Pacific University.
