Michael Strahan Gives N.Y. Reporter Props for ‘Blocking Game’

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

WABC reporter Darla Miles went viral last week when she blocked a stranger from walking through her live shot.

She didn’t miss a beat while going live at New York City’s Penn Station when she noticed a man walking toward her from the corner of her eye. She put out her arm and simply moved him aside during her hit.

It was so smooth the internet went wild—calling her a “ninja,” “baller,” “boss” and more.


Then yesterday Miles said she got the ultimate verification from one of her favorite TV personalities. While taking her family to see the daytime talk show Michael and Sarah, Michael Strahan referenced her move in the field.

“Took the fam to see @strahanandsara & @michaelstrahan has officially verified my blocking game!! 🏈🏈💪🏽💪🏽 ”

The original video has more than 40,000 likes on Twitter.
