At some point in the near future, sideline reporters are going to become an endangered species.
Fox Sports Ohio's Allie Clifton joined the long list of sideline reporters to get nailed in the head by a wayward ball during warmups. Thankfully, this looked more like a glancing blow to the top of the coconut and not something more serious. She's obviously got a bright future in the business because she barely blinked and kept going with her report.
And she didn't even need Rick Jeanneret's fancy helmet! Hockey players got nothing on sideline reporters.
Here it is in GIF form.
