If you live in the DC Metro area you most likely know about this complete tool. Pat Collins is a reporter for our local NBC affiliate NBC4. He has been around on the news here for as long as I can remember and from the first moment I saw him on TV I thought to myself, “What a complete and total douchebag.” I have no idea how he has been on the air for as long as he has because he creeps me out worse than the eyes of Sue Palka the Fox weather woman with the really freakin’ crazy eyes. And that chick really creeps me out so that is saying something.
Mr. Collins appears to believe he is Bill Shatner when he is doing any of his news reports. His overly dramatic delivery makes me want him…just once… to look dead into the camera and say “You…Klingon bastard….You….killed my son”. Or even better just one long “KHAAAAN!”. This guy really is THAT over the top on every news report he ever does.
During our Snowpocalypse earlier this year Pat was out on some street corner all freakin’ day and night with a stupid yard stick measuring every inch as it fell from the heavens. It probably wouldn’t have been so bad had the storm not made it impossible to go anywhere and every local channel showed nothing but storm coverage all day long for like 3 days. This jerk-off was grabbing people as they walked by so they could do (for the 323rd time that day) another measurement of the snowfall.
“Why yes Pat, there is about another 1/4 of an inch since you did this 5 minutes ago”
I was watching the news just a bit ago and Pat came on to give some report from somewhere about something and I swear this guy thinks the entire viewing audience is hanging on his every word. After every report this guy files they should have that Drama Chipmunk pop up on the screen.
Am I alone in my hatred of this guy?
Oh and for those of you who don’t know who he is…here is one of his “reports” that i found….you be the judge. And yeah, I know this is a really crappy quality video but I think it really illustrates just how douchey this guy can be.
