Ouch! NFL sideline reporter takes football to the face

Pam Oliver, FOX’s NFL sideline reporter, is a pro’s pro. And if you don’t believe me, just take a look at the way she handled getting hit in the face by a football on TV Sunday night.

Oliver, doing pregame work on the sideline before Colts-Giants, was the victim of an errant (?) throw by Indianapolis backup-to-the-backup quarterback Chandler Harnish.

The result was a football to the FACE.

There’s a major difference in this situation and the one involving NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport last year. First of all, firing at “RapSheet” was intentional. Secondly, Pam didn’t flinch as much as Ian. Third, Pam actually got hit hard. And four, it’s unlikely that Rapoport got a public apology from the person who winged him.

Oliver certainly did, even if it was only on Twitter.

Chandler Harnish (@C_Harnish)   - Would like to take this time to apologize to Pam Oliver, for the bad pass to the face.. Be expecting flowers in the mail soon! #ToughLady

That’s really nice of Harnish, but he should probably start worrying about making the team if he’s going to be that inaccurate in warmups.
