ESPN soccer analyst (and former Arsenal defender) Martin Keown was starting to answer a question during the pregame studio show for the Leeds United FA Cup when he was hit in the head by a stray warm-up soccer ball.
The ball was apparently kicked by an unidentified Leeds player. Keown was OK and continued on with the show.
The studio show happened to be positioned on the side of the pitch. Maybe ESPN needs to put up some type of protective wall behind the studio analysts.
