The Weather Channel's Jim Cantore is prominent in the weather news business. He’s even referred to as “the rock star of meteorologists” in some circles.
So, it makes sense that a rebellious teen might seek some momentary notoriety by interrupting Cantore during an on-air weather report.
But in this case, Cantore took the teen's momentum right away from him, displaying some lightning-quick reflexes and deploying a knee-to-the-groin maneuver.
At about the 11-second mark, watch as Cantore looks off-camera just before the teen bursts into Cantore’s shot, screaming a high-pitched wail. But just as quickly, he emits a short yelp and runs back off camera after taking the receiving end of Cantore’s knee.
"Well, obviously here at the College of Charleston they're already having a good time,"Cantore says, without missing a beat.
You’d think the teen would have known better than to mess with the man who did pushups on air right in the middle of Hurricane Isaac’s 80 mph winds.
