Jimmy Jump. The guy who stormed the pitch and cheekily presented Thierry Henry with a Barcelona jersey during last week's Champion's League match versus Villareal has a website. Regardless of where you stand on pitch invaders, "there will be no way to remain indiferent in front of his universal cause of feeling implicated with what he does."

He's got a few videos, too.

I neglected to mention the Jimmy Jump documentary entitled "Jump! A Dreamer's Day", which also features "the world’s #1 Streaker, Mark Roberts."

One day, someone will shoot at him when he jumps onto the pitch. Then, he'll stop jumping.

If Thierry goes to Barca this summer, I will find Jimmy Jump and beat the crap out of him, because it will be his ominous action that would allow such a tragedy to occur.

Yeah, Jimmy-- try getting onto a pitch in Germany in June... see where it gets you.

Jimmy's down!

I'd love to see him try that in the U.S.

he obviously has a pre-9/11 mind set and the po-po, not to mention the players, would fix him of that good.

I thoroughly hate it when wankers think they are part of the game and can storm the pitch or run the field. And I really like it when they try it at a football game and get clotheslined and then taken off the field on a stretcher and then they get arrested.

Nothing like traction to help you remember that spectators don't take part in the game.

I met Jummy once, funnily enough, it was in Madrid. The girls were digging him for sure.

Is he the guy who ran straight into the net during the last Euro cup? That was hilarious
