    Gay Man Arrested For Trying To Kiss Rafael Nadal At US Open

    Looks like the US Open security staff was asleep at the switch on this one. It might be time for them to bring Eastender on board as a consultant:

    EB,

    Grant you POA to negotiate an acceptable fee for my services. Just remember, cold hard US dollars, NYC HDH hourly rates, none of these contra deals for swimming rights in a pond. You can contra your 10% commission if you wish.Now go and make Steve Boras proud.

    Not a difficult job. Just have to explain certain basics to tennis security.

    I think you meant Scott Boras. In any event this episode is a huge embarassment to the Open security staff because after all this guy could have had a knife and we could have seen a repeat of the Monica Seles incident. It was fortunate that he was only a horny, harmless fag with no intentions other than to hug and kiss Nadal. I suspect that changes will be made in security protocol. By analogy at Yankee Stadium when a fan runs out onto the field of play he is tackled, removed, ejected from the Stadium and arrested. It looks like the tackling part was missing from US Open security staff's protocol.

    Yes Scott. Nothing about player agents makes them memorable.

    Basic issue isn't the security but the law. Slap on the wrist fine is more than offset by the 15 seconds of fame, or a lifetime of renown at the local bar mooching drinks or "dates" as the guy who ran onto the court to kiss Nadal or was tackled at second base at Yankee Stadium.

    How do you know the guy was gay Beav? No where in the report is his sexual preference mentioned. It looks like Nadal enjoyed it, he actually tried to follow the gentleman as he was being hauled away.
    Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction) English, motherfu*ker, do you speak it?

    Typical Yankee fan in the Merb Sports Section!! Bwwaahh.

    I am assuming that a straight or heterosexual man would not have run onto the Court to hug and kiss Rafael Nadal. As far as Nadal enjoying it, that's not what it looked like to me. It looked like he had some words for the guy, but he seemed to laugh the incident off. He also won his match which had been postponed at that point, in dominating fashion, so the incident cannot be said to have bothered him too much.

    Eastender - the problem in not violently tackling guys like this is that the media gives them their 15 minutes of fame simply because he got to Nadal. If he is tackled, he never makes it on camera or else its a shot not worth showing on worldwide Internet media outlets.

    You of all people should no better than to assume Beav.

    Yeah, but I think the assumption is a pretty good one here. The man who kissed Nadal, an Israeli national, made statements that kissing a man in public is no big deal in his native Israel, which is known to be very tolerant towards public displays of gay affection. More here:

    Sounds like Mr. Aorta has some serious legal problems at this time. I am not sure that the "kissing a man is no big deal in Israel" defense is going to fly in Queens.

    Kissing and hugging between men is common in many countries around the world and doesn't make someone gay. And...

    "He's an Israeli citizen who lives in Fresh Meadows, is married and has one child, according to friends."

    What's more likely, that he's just an overzealousd fan who had a bit too much to drink or that he chose to come out of the closet in front of 20+ thousand people and millions of tv viewers around the world?

    If he was liquored up it could be either one! I say the latter.
