Sports Broadcaster Kirk Herbstreit Keeps It Together During Earthquake

by | 7th, November 2011

BEING a sports reporter looks like a great job doesn’t it? Unless of course you work for ITV and have to sit with the loathsome Andy Townsend or, worse still, Jim ‘The Stupidest Man In The Universe’ Beglin.

Still, there’s things that are worse than working with those berks. How about delivering a piece to camera while an earthquake rumbles on?

That’s exactly what analyst Kirk Herbstreit had to deal with when delivering his post-match thoughts. A 5.6 earthquake hit during his piece and while it takes place, Kirk manages to stay composed… that is, if you avoid looking into his eyes.

Seriously, watch them widen with utter fear as the aftershock slaps the stadium around.

What a champ! He’s almost certainly going to become an animated gif or meme on 4chan any second now.
