NOTE: No one in this compilation was seriously injured, including the Russian reporter at the very end who got a little too close to a racetrack. He was taken to a hospital and treated for a concussion, so he's pretty much the luckiest guy alive.
Clearly, sideline reporters have the most dangerous job in the world. The get beamed by every kind of ball, have their outfits insulted, get the Gatorade treatment, and even occasionally get sideswiped by a speeding car... all in the name of color commentary.
Our hats off to these American heroes, and to the folks at World Wide Interwebs who put this compilation together.
