CBS Miami (WFOR) sports reporter Samantha Rivera had to straight arm an excited fan to keep him out of her live shot last night.

Rivera was doing a live recap of Game 2 of the NHL Stanley Cup finals featuring the Las Vegas Golden Knights and the Florida Panthers when a fan of the hometown team tried to show off his excitement by stepping into the shot. Rivera was having none of it.

“Listen, I don’t give a damn what team you’re rooting for – get the hell out of my face when I’m working and respect that I’m here to do my job,” Rivera tweeted, along with footage of the display. “Excited to get back home to some classy #Panthers fans for game 3!!”


Vegas beat the Panthers 7-2 in the game in Las Vegas and now has a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series, which heads to Florida.
