We’ve seen a lot of fantastic reactions from John Brooks’ game-winning header during the USA-Ghana World Cup match, but none better than this one.
Portland news reporter Drew Carney of KGW was live on air when Brooks scored the stunning goal to give the U.S. a 2-1 lead. Carney was clearly prepped for the big day, rocking a USA shirt beneath his jacket. As he unzipped, the cameraman settled in. Carney put down the work and turned into a fan for a moment in time, which was the best possible reporting he could do.
And not to be overlooked, the person manning the camera is a consummate professional. The fact that they didn’t miss a beat filming while all of America was in pandemonium is pretty remarkable.
