It took Wolfson awhile before she was finally able to track down Tom Brady for a postgame interview after a Super Bowl win.
Super Bowl LIII proved to be quite the slugfest between the Patriots and Rams. But perhaps no one put on as gritty of a performance as CBS' Tracy Wolfson.
Following New England's victory, Wolfson–along with a cascade of media members–crowded around Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. But it took a few minutes before Wolfson, who appeared to attempt starting her interview a few times, was able to reach Brady.
Try as she might, Wolfson was able to get to Brady. Observers and peers across the nation took to Twitter to express concern for Wolfson's well-being, as well as commend her hard-fought effort.
Yo, let’s not let the sideline reporter get crushed on live TV. I’m now genuinely concerned— Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) February 4, 2019
Tracy Wolfson for MVP— Ben Reiter (@BenReiter) February 4, 2019
Whew. I was afraid Tracy Wolfson was gone forever.— Ryan McGee (@ESPNMcGee) February 4, 2019
Everybody, check the bottoms of your shoes for Tracy Wolfson, please.— Mike Casazza (@mikecasazza) February 4, 2019
Tracy Wolfson deserves a raise after this. Seriously— Jorge Sedano (@SedanoESPN) February 4, 2019
Some team might want to consider Tracy Wolfson as its short-yardage back.— Chris Burke (@ChrisBurkeNFL) February 4, 2019
Some expressed displeasure with CBS' attempt to conduct a postgame interview immediately after the game ended. And some cracked some jokes.
i dont like this Scrum Cam.— Playoff Beard Blinn (@NHLBlinn) February 4, 2019
And that's why the Final Four does it right. Makes no sense that the NFL allows cameras to crush the celebration after a win. Let the players and coaches celebrate and then let the rights holder reporter of the broadcast (@tracywolfson) do the postgame interview. Simple. https://t.co/bLJ2D2nian— Andy Katz (@TheAndyKatz) February 4, 2019
It was quite the way to cap off the NFL season. The Patriots earned their sixth championship in franchise history. And Tracy Wolfson was deemed a champion in her own right.
