Sometimes you just never know what you'll see on live television. On Sunday during NESN's telecast of the Houston Astros-Boston Red Sox game, reporter Jenny Dell was in the stands to interview a family regarding "Autism Awareness Day" at Fenway Park.

As she was talking to Red Sox fan Jennifer Colbert and her son Elijah about what the day meant to them, a portly Red Sox  fan walked in front of them despite Dell's gestures to him not to. And while the interview continued, you could tell Dell was quite perturbed at him. And when the interview finished, NESN's cameras cut back to  Dell as she was lecturing the fan and his wife about walking in front of them.

Jenny later tweeted that she had made arrangements with the fan not to walk back to his seat during the interview, but apparently, his wife wanted the hot dogs he had bought and did not want to wait. While some fans thought Dell was mean to the fan, if a deal was made for him not to walk back to his seat, then clearly the guy violated that agreement. Then again, the fan is probably telling his friends about his brief encounter with Jenny Dell.
