Even people who don’t watch sports stopped and took notice on Friday night when LeBron James sank the catch-and-shoot buzzer-beating three-pointer to save the Cavaliers’ hopes in the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Orlando Magic. By chance, the end of that game coincided with the end of the 11 o’clock news in Cleveland, where the Channel 5 news team had resigned itself to a loss of viewers and a Cavs loss. Being consummate professionals, they handled LeBron’s shot with straight-faced gravity.
Nah, just kidding. They whooped it up and acted like they weren’t on TV, making it one of the better newscasts of the 21st century. (After the jump, watch the videos synced together.)
