There are many things you need to be prepared for when working in LIVE television. Crazy hours. Last minute breaking news. Knowing where you need to be. Taking a 58 yard field goal to the groin.
That’s exactly what happened to one unlucky camera guy during the Detroit Lions / Arizona Cardinals game yesterday. As Matt Prater booted the football….it sailed through the air and right into the most sensitive of areas.
Like a true pro….this man hardly even flinched and continued doing his job. We all flinched for you, good sir. Watch the highlight….

Prater made the field goal, by the way, and the Lions beat the Cardinals 35-23. (h/t SI)
