Giant paper airplane crashes Brewers game (Video)

Big League Stew

Of all the presumed beer-fueled creativity that America's sports fans showed this past weekend, it's hard to top a Milwaukee Brewers fan doing his best impersonation of a Wright brother by flying a giant paper airplane all the way out to second base. The flight, which took place during Milwaukee's 9-6 win on Saturday night, originated from the upper deck of Miller Park and interrupted Aramis Ramirez's at-bat during the sixth inning.

The fan's ingenuity drew loud cheers from the crowd, praise from the broadcasters and even a round of applause from New York second baseman/air traffic controller Daniel Murphy. It's a little curious that such disruptive behavior would be featured in a video on MLB.com, but perhaps that's the reward of being much more entertaining than a laser pointer and a few ticks below that guy with the parachute who used to crash big sporting events.

Speaking of that parachute guy, I like to think this is how he got his start.
