GMA’s Michael Strahan gets tackled at military base in new video after sparking fears with absence from morning show

Michael, who looked smart in a navy suit, tried to advance through a group of airmen on stage during the game.

One of them swiftly blocked the broadcaster and sent him flying to the other side.

His teammates laughed and cheered him on as Michael staggered back and jogged around the edge of the stage.

Taking the rebuff in his stride, the Hall Of Famer jogged back over and pointed at the airman, yelling: “He’s good!”

The video was shared on NFL on Fox’s Instagram account with the caption: “Tough o-line.”

Michael has a special connection to the armed forces, as he is a self-described “army brat.”

On Veteran’s Day, he shared a vintage-looking photo of his dad in a military uniform in front of a Christmas tree on Instagram.

The TV star captioned the Veteran’s Day tribute post saying: “My father and hero Maj. Gene W. Strahan, Sr.

“My dad served for 23 years in the army and was a proud member of the 82nd Airborne Division,” Michael added, after opening up about his past on Rachael Ray.”

Michael had a jam-packed schedule last week, heading to Qatar after filming a climate change special for GMA in Canada.

He sparked concern from viewers after filming “terrifying” scenes with polar bears in Canada on Wednesday.


He went on an expedition to see the animals during a segment on how their homes were under threat from the climate crisis.

The clip began with a shot of the broadcaster on a boat wearing a black beanie hat and what appeared to be a life jacket and goggles as he rode closer to the dangerous animals.

Fans shared their concern for Michael at the time, with one commenting: “Terrifying he will do anything just for the money shot.”

They became even more worried when he still hadn’t returned to GMA two days later.

TJ Holmes, Amy Robach and George Stephanopoulos were all in the office during GMA’s broadcast.
