Jim Vance, long-time anchor at NBC’s affiliate in Washington, D.C. gets hysterical alongside long-time sports reporter George Michael while reporting a rather trivial story. Thanks to Anne for making me aware of this.

Oh, my! We usually only catch the end of their newscast since we watch WJLA (just can’t get enough of Doug Hill!). But, from the moment we moved here, Jim Vance has always cracked me up with his ability to show so little emotion — I always said he could do a broadcast announcing the end of the world, and his tone wouldn’t change at all. He is always the epitome of even-keeled. (In fact, I once used him as an example during an in-service training about how teachers set the tone for their classrooms — but I digress . . .)
All that to say — THAT is priceless. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Now, they had me laughing, and I’m not in all that great of a mood tonight! That poor girl–I hope she can laugh at herself. I don’t think I could even walk in those shoes these days.
But it reminds me of a time when I was in college. My brother came to visit me on campus and we were walking down a main street in Canyon, Texas. I had on platform shoes,which were “in” back then, and I “fell off of my shoes” onto the ground. My goofy brother, who was a teenager, just about died laughing, he thought it was so funny. Well, a guy in a pick-up was driving by, and he thought my brother had pushed me down….not knowing either of us. In Texas, men take care of women, so he pulled over and was about to beat up my brother until he saw that I was laughing just as hard as he was. He asked me if I was okay and helped me up and then left. I think he figured it out.
What is so funny about a girl falling off of her shoes? That guy didn’t think it was funny, but we did! 🙂
