Geek Goes Down on Live TV

You haven’t lived until you’ve humiliated yourself on live television. I had that unique opportunity this morning after doing my regular “LOST” commentary on KITV (the Honolulu ABC affiliate). The next segment was some fitness drills with current and former members of the UH Warriors football team, sponsored by Jamba Juice. I was enlisted to join the news team. The rest is television history.

Aafter the broadcast, of course, we all went upstairs to watch this clip, over and over and over again. In slow-motion, too. Apparently the morning deejays at KCCN even called to check if I was okay… and to laugh heartily.

Mahalo to Clayton for sending me the video to share with the world.

UPDATE: KITV has also posted the clip to its website.

    That was so a slide to safe! At least that little tumble was not without its benefits; like another jamba!

    Glad you’re okay! You were such a good sport to jump in and participate like that and then share it with all of us! How about having the football players do a geek challenge event?

    No sweat, Ryan. This kind of thing happens all the time when I hang out with Ron Menor and Jon Karamatsu.

    Then, by that standard of measure, Ryan, you, sir, are very much among the living!
    I hope you’re okay!
