Black Cat Interrupts Monday Night Football at MetLife

Andy Berg

If you’re a football lover and cat lover and happened to be watching Monday Night Football this week, you got more than your money’s worth when a black cat wandered onto the field at MetLife Stadium.

The cat, which interrupted the game between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants, had not been caught as of Tuesday morning, as it escaped under the stands after being chased off the field.

The television broadcast of the game showed fans were delighted with the unscheduled intermission, however a superstitious Jerry Jones may have been less than enthused, as the Cowboys were down 9-3 to the Giants at the time.

"I haven't seen one glare at me that far away before," Jones told ESPN. "I know he was looking at me the whole time he was out there. But things did kind of change when that black cat came out."

MetLife officials said that once the cat is located it will be taken to a veterinarian for an examination.

In all, the game was delayed for about two minutes before play was resumed.
