Moments after Tom Brady took a knee to run out of the clock to finish Super Bowl 53 to give the New England Patriots a 13-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams, CBS tried Tracy Wolfson to get a post-game interview. Immediately, the quarterback was sworn by journalists and cameramen, and it became scary quickly.
First of all, Wolfson started a walk-and-talk with Brady trying to get the interview going, but Brady wanted to share an embrace and some kind of words with Rams & Brand's Cookin. Then it was another Rams player. So Julian Edelman. So Bill Belichick. So Robert Kraft. With each new person shattered and pushed. With very few security guards detaining hordes of cameras and cameramen, 5 & 6; 6 Wolfson began to hit and push around.
"Jesus are you okay?" The security officer tells Wolfson. "Stay straight, okay?"
Twitter respected hell out of Wolfson's fasting and persistence:
Tracy Wolfson deserves a journey after this. Seriously

It is thought that mental illness @tracywolfson is in the middle of the marks (and handles so well), my skin creeps. Why can't photographers give space?!? We know that we all have a job to do, but good gentlemen.

The interview, when it was able to happen, went just fine.
