There are all kinds of delays in sports, but this might be the first. On Wednesday night, a college basketball game was interrupted when a food delivery driver walked onto the court in the middle of the game.
Loyola Chicago and Duquesne faced off in the second half, and as the two teams battled it out, an Uber Eats delivery man walked into the corner of the court with a bag in hand.

Officials stopped play to resolve the situation while the announcers tried to figure out what on earth was going on.
“From Uber Eats delivery or something?” said one.
“He’s got some McDonald’s on him. I’m actually not kidding. I think that’s what’s going on.”
The second speaker added: “Was he delivering McDonald’s to someone on the pitch? Can we rule that out?”
“There he is!” Who does he deliver to, the judge?”
Reporters at the scene speculated that someone working at the video board had actually ordered the food, so the driver was technically in the right place.
But how they got into the arena without a ticket is an open question.
Eventually the food reached its proper destination and the game moved on. Duquesne beat Loyola Chicago 72 to 58.
Let’s hope the driver got a good tip out of it.
