Ian Rapoport high-fives a fan right in the face (GIF)
Ian Rapoport is one the best NFL reporters in the business today. I’ve been a huge fan since he covered the New England Patriots for the Boston Herald, and his work with the NFL Network has been equally stellar. Let’s just hope Ian didn’t lose a fan on Friday by accidentally smacking him in the face.
Rapoport was reporting live from Times Square in New York City when his colleague Andrew Siciliano told him to turn around and high-five some of the fans that had gathered behind him. It didn’t go so well, and Rapoport ended up smacking some dude directly in the eye. He apologized on Twitter as soon as he realized.

No harm, no foul. Unless the guy lost a contact — that’s never any fun.
