Hump Day Humor: Watch the Pint Sized Pitch Invader

When you’re supposed to be the authority on Chinese soccer, it doesn’t feel good to get pipped by the Huffington Post.  I’m sort of the Minister of Propoganda for the site and prefer to focus on the positive sides of the Chinese Super League so the first time I saw the photos on Saturday, I didn’t think much of it, these incidents aren’t that uncommon in China, definitely not worthy of a post.  When I saw video during a Chinese Super League highlights show, it was worth a chuckle watching the little fat kid chase after the referee and fail miserably.

China’s future Jimmy Jump looks to be around 12 and needs to lay off the KFC and McDonald’s if he wants to be more successful.  After failing to get at the referee and not listening to Li Weifeng, he was too slow to avoid the authorities, who violently tackled him.  What’s interesting is after he’s tackled, the players, in particular Da Tou (“Big Head”, Li Weifeng’s nickname), came over to defend the kid and protest the police’s violent tactics.

Fuck, it’s only Wednesday, we’re a long way from Sunday, hope this helps you get through the week.

Brandon Chemers aka B. Cheng aka A Modern Lei Feng – is a name which may be familiar to many in the Chinese blogosphere. He currently serves as Editor-in-Chief for Wild East Football and is one of the lonely souls writing about Chinese football in English for the last 10 years. Chemers' credentials are second to none – his former blog focused not only on the fortunes of his beloved Beijing Guoan FC, but a multitude of other aspects of Beijing life. He’s deservedly built a reputation in the Chinese blogosphere as an insightful observer of not only Chinese football, but also the wider picture of life in modern China and its many layers. For WEF, beyond writing about Guoan, he often focuses on fan culture and the business of Chinese football.
