Sports: This is a great punishment

The fan who ran unto the field during the Steels/Browns game will will not be able to watch the Superbowl because he was sentenced to serve his jail time during the game.
The fan who ran onto the field at Cleveland Browns Stadium during a Steelers-Browns game was sentenced Tuesday to spend Super Bowl weekend in jail.

Nathan Mallett, 24, will begin his three-day sentence on Feb. 3 and won't be allowed to watch the Feb. 5 game on television or listen to it on radio.

Municipal Court Judge Joan Synenberg ordered Mallett not to attend Browns games in Cleveland or any other city for five years as a condition of his probation. He also most perform 150 hours of community service with Browns charities. He could have been sentenced to up to 30 days in jail.

Mallett, who expressed remorse in court, was convicted earlier this month of misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct while intoxicated and criminal trespassing.

At least he isn't a Steelers fan. I think being a Browns fan would be punishment enough.

Hopefully Romeo Cornell can right that ship down in Clevland.
