'Good Morning America': Host Michael Strahan hypes up crowd at live work event, leaves colleagues and guests stunned
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: 'Good Morning America's host Michael Strahan has made headlines for his ardent behavior at a work event with his colleagues. Michael was attending an event and was a part of Monday's Fox Upfront, a presentation held at New York City's Manhattan Center. The event was all about what Fox plans to do in the next two years, including what was in store for Fox Sports, Fox News, and other Fox channels.
The opening of the show wasn't up to the mark, with Gordon Ramsey opening the event by standing on top of a bar. Michael was joined by many well-knowns at the future discussion event, like Rob Gronkowski, Erin Andrews, Derek Jeter, and Fox sportscaster Alex Rodriguez. American sports commentator, Erin Andrews was the first to try and hype the crowd up but was failing miserably. But, everything apparently went "off the rails" when she announced that soccer player Carly Lloyd was part of the Fox Sports lineup.

Michael Strahan and his friends went berserk
After Erin Andrews made the exciting announcement, the crowd went crazy as Michael Strahan, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, and Rob Gronkowski went on top of the bar Ramsey opened the event with and started throwing autographed baseballs and footballs into the crowd. That moment was enough to win the hype Erin was trying to create for far too long.

In other news, Michael Strahan has slammed Derek Jeter in a new video for "making him feel old." The video was shared on Michael's official Instagram account and is of them and a few other friends playing golf together for charity. The video starts with Derek pointing to Michael and saying, "I grew up watching Michael Strahan." Michael then asks his other friends if they did too and they said, "Of course." Michael then reacted to this sudden information and said, "You know what? You're just trying to make me feel old, man." Another, much younger friend of Michael's came out and said, "I wasn't even alive then."
Later in the video, Michael's friend Kevin starts to say something important, but Michael interrupts him and says, "Kevin, don't talk to Derek! Paige is the only one you can talk to on their team." Derek replies with a sarcastic tone, "Oh, you didn't hear what she said?" Then, Paige repeats what she said to Michael and the GMA host says, "Don't talk to Paige either! Don't talk to either one of them. They are not our friends right now." The post's caption read, "Got roasted for my age???? At least it was for a good cause, @jeterturn2. No I didn't hear you, @_paige.renee but that was COLD BLOODED!!"
