I’m not saying that we condone this sort of action over at the BSBFB — but you should totally try this at home. What’s the worst that could happen? A couple of Frenchmen might glare at you, but there’s not much they can do. I wouldn’t try this with he Russian wrestling team or the American target-shooting team because you’ll be dead before you get within 20 yards in both cases.
There’s nothing wrong with simply showing up for things. There’s a whole stadium full of spectators that showed up and didn’t have any problems. Naturally, that’s not really the same as running onto their glorified tennis court and getting friendly with the players, but a lot worse can happen. He didn’t cripple anyone on his way down, or anything like that. He probably should have, considering it would have been the most interesting thing to happen day. I don’t know if they give out medals for that, but they should.
