Covering a Sports Illustrated photo shoot is an assignment most men only dream about. Unfortunately for Willie Geist, the segment of a lifetime aired on his wife Christina's birthday. So much for living the dream.
Thankfully, Christina has a good sense of humor about it.
In the spot, Willie rubbed shoulders with famous models like Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Petra Nemcova and learned a few lessons about strutting his stuff on the catwalk.
After the previously taped story aired, Willie, reporting from Sochi, redeemed himself a bit.
"I had no business being there," he said with a smile. "I should have been at home with my wife and children."
