Great moment, BAD reporter....?

by Jason Miller

When you get to a point in your life, some things that early on that didn't make you emotional, just do. What do I mean, well lets take for instance this...in this blog post is a video from FOX Sports.  The video is of a family who's Dad was off on Military duty for one year.  The little girl is his daughter and she doesn't know what's going on.  Dad comes out in catcher gear, pads and face mask, glove, the whole nine.  The little girl throws out the first pitch and then it happens....

Now watch and then please continue reading.......

\Here's where I want to go with this.  Did anyone else find the reporter to be a complete ASH?  This guy ruined every emotion I had.  I know he has a job to try to get that emotion that everyone was feeling while watching from the family but this guy blew it, in my humble opinion.  I would have asked the Dad, great moment after everything you have been through?  To the little girl, your Dad surprised you just a little bit huh?  And then to Mom, Pretty special to see that moment and then to be able to join in on that must be overwhelming as a Mom and Wife...thanks and great pitch.  But instead we had to try and draw that emotion out AGAIN.  I love the videos but I just don't love the reporter who thinks they are the story...the story was great on it's own buddy.
