Who says chivalry is dead? Chicago Bears cornerback Charles “Peanut” Tillman proved that he is quite the gentleman as he saved FOX Sports sideline reporter Laura Okmin from getting run over by a moving sideline camera during the game.
While the Bears are easily taking care of the Minnesota Vikings, Tillman decided to take some time out to play hero.
Here is a GIF of the finny moment, via CJ Fogler on Twitter:
After Tillman saved the day, he got to lock eyes with Okmin and enjoy a sweet embrace. How cute. Maybe he will take her out for dinner later.
This is just the latest incident with sideline reporters this season. Luckily for Okmin, she had Tillman there to save her or else she could have gone down harder than Pam Oliver when she took a football to the head.
Watching and reporting about the games from the sidelines has it’s perks, but it is definitely a dangerous place to be.
Be safe out there, folks.
