A fan rushed the field at Candlestick Park shortly after the lights went out for the second time during the "Monday Night Football" matchup between the 49ers and the Steelers. The encroaching fan appeared to make it all the way down the field before, we're assuming, security grabbed him.

But TV viewers didn't get to see how that man's night ended. Instead, ESPN cameras stayed on Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and his backup, Byron Leftwich, as they reacted to the situation.

While police were busy corralling the interloper, Roethlisberger shook his head and asked, "Where's James Harrison when you need him?" Leftwich then wondered aloud why fans often try running on the field even though they always get caught and end up missing the game.

Harrison, in case you forgot, was suspended for Monday night's game due to his illegal hit on Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy last week. And speaking of the Steelers enforcer, he apparently knows why the power went out.

"If I cant play then can't nobody play... Lights out!" Harrison tweeted.


James Harrison
If I cant play then can't nobody play... Lights out!
