Halloween was last week, but try telling that to the quick-moving black cat that appeared on the field at MetLife Stadium during the Monday Night Football game between the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys.
Theshowed up near the end of the second quarter, and play was stopped while it raced around for about two minutes. Fans erupted when the cat finally crossed into the end zone, and it eventually darted into one of the off-field tunnels.
Westwood One radio announcer Kevin Harlan gave the cat its own witty play-by-play.
Football fans on social media honored the feline visitor with plenty of memes and jokes. Black cats, of course, bring their own special superstitions. "Seven more years of bad QBs for the Giants," wrote one Twitter user.
And some were worried about the frantic feline's fear. "Call me weird, but I found absolutely nothing funny about this," wrote one Twitter user. "It was heartbreaking seeing how terrified that cat was."
And some fans just wanted to sign the cat. "Has good movement skills but could use a little more cardio work," wrote one.
And it turns out a lot of cats watch Monday Night Football too, and this may have been their favorite game ever.
