KVOA sports anchor Paul Cicala had to sprint to make the Arizona Wildcats tipoff in the Pac-12 Tournament on Friday but he didn't quite make a smooth getaway.
His fall has been picked up by the Today Show, Huffington Post, Bleacher Report, Deadspin and — according to KVOA on Twitter — the clip will be on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon tonight.
He's laughing about it on Twitter and said on Facebook that he continued to roll and ended up on his feet after the camera cut away.
He posted: "I wish the newscast didn't "move on to the next story", because I continued to roll, get up.. and kept sprinting to the MGM.. no lie. yeah.. a bit embarrassing.. but, all things considered, I'm human .. It just happened on LIVE TV!!! LOL"
@LOLTucson it looks like the "TRIP" to Las Vegas was well worth it! :) - Ahh... The things journalists do to make deadline - gotta' hustle— Paul Cicala (@PaulCicala) March 16, 2014
