Fox News’ Mike Tobin has reported from the Gaza Strip, okay? He’s a man equipped to keep his head about him in a high-stress situation, his on-camera professionalism honed in war-torn and disaster-swept areas from Lebanon to Joplin. What did you think, ladies? That he couldn’t spot potential incoming threats while doing a live shot? That he doesn’t have the peripheral vision of a parliament of freakin’ screech owls? Owls don’t sound that badass, but they are. Stealthily badass, as Tobin proves to be in this clip when he delivers the Heisman stiff arm to two chicks trying to kiss him on camera.
I realize Bostonians are in the mood to cut loose a bit post-lockdown, but thanks to Tobin for salvaging some gravitas for this report. Well done.
