Texas Rangers’ Fan Photobombs Reporter [VIDEO]
You've got to love a fan that acts like he's being electrocuted at a baseball game while an attractive reporter attempts to do some reporting.
Poor Shannon Hogan. She was simply trying to execute a simple report during a Rangers-Tigers game on Sunday, April 22nd. It started off like a lot of reports in the crowd do; some overzealous fans wanting to get on TV by acting crazy. No big deal, it's pretty much par for the course. However, this guy behind Shannon Hogan took "overzealous fan" to a whole new level. The fan started sticking his tongue out like Michael Jordan and shaking like he just bit a power line.
Shannon Hogan did the best she could. She was professional and essentially looked the other way. I always wonder what the conversation is like when something like this occurs and the camera is no longer rolling. I couldn't blame Shannon if she looked at the guy and said, "You're an a-hole. Seriously."
I can relate to this a little bit. When 104.5 The Team broadcasts live out at Saratoga during the horse-racing season, there are people who will say random things while trying to get on the air. It isn't nearly as crazy as what these TV people deal with, but it occurs in radio too. Radio people don't have to deal with the crazy facial expressions of people like this wacko in the video though. Sometimes, I wouldn't mind it purely for the entertainment value.
