Sunday's Ravens game at M&T Bank Stadium was briefly interrupted when a semi-nude man leaped onto the field dressed in tight Batman shorts and a cape. Mark Harvey, a 26-year-old truck driver from Severn, is no newbie when it comes to streaking: He made a similar sally onto the field at Camden Yards on the Orioles' Opening Day in April. Harvey made his move two minutes before the end of the second quarter, according to a police report. A video shot by Harvey's friends and posted to YouTube shows him jumping onto the field before heading to midfield and dancing around like a crab, then blowing kisses to the crowd.
