When Lee Valsvik was doing a live television report with some Minnesota Vikings fans, she couldn't have predicted how horribly it would go wrong.

Interviewing fans at a restaurant about the Minnesota Vikings' playoff game against the Green Bay Packers (which the Vikings lost), Valsvik eagerly encouraged the fans to partake in a pick-up game of gridiron.

Unfortunately, after the ball was thrown to the receiver and he advanced into shot, Valsvik was caught off guard, and in the way. The reporter was up-ended in a flash.

She took the embarrassing gaffe well though and was heard yelling "I'm okay" to camera while finding her feet.
