Snow wars: Javier Soto vs. Arnold "The Arm" Espinoza

Posted: Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Have you ever wondered what really happens when 3TV crews are in between live shots?

If you're reporter Javier Soto and photographer Arnold Espinoza covering snow up in Flagstaff, you're reverting to your childhood with an old-fashioned snowball fight.

Guys being guys, things can get a little rough -- in a good-natured way, of course. After all, it's not really a snowball fight until somebody get tackled, right? When that happens, retaliation is a must. And sometimes it all plays out on live TV.

That's exactly what happened Tuesday when we had a smack-down in the snow. Talk about good TV. It was awesome.

The smack-downs were all in good fun; no photographers and "no Javis" were harmed in any way. (Except, perhaps, for minor bruises to their prides.)

In the end, it was pretty much a draw as most snow wars are.

Now, raise your hand if you wanted to be playing in the snow with the guys Tuesday morning.

Yeah. Me, too.
