Upon returning from covering the Miami Dolphins versus the Dallas Cowboys game on Christmas Eve, Andrews recalled an interaction while at the Fort Lauderdale airport while trying to grab a quick bite to eat.

“This guy is clearly overserved,” Andrews said. “I don’t know if his flight was delayed or if he received excessive services.”

“We have 10 minutes before the bar closes. Can I get a fast burger? No cheese, fries. I don’t care what you have. Can I have something? “I haven’t eaten since 8:30 in the morning,” she continued.

Andrews said one of the workers agreed to bring him food and drink before the man decided to give him some unwanted advice.

“The guy turned to the bar and said, ‘I know who you are.’ And I said, ‘Great. Anyway, thanks a lot. Here’s some advice.’ And he says, ‘You need to smile more.’ And I said, ‘You need to smile more.’ ‘I didn’t ask,'” Andrews recalled.

Andrews said the man accused her of not being very nice before she responded with an “unkind word.”

The final week of the NFL season begins Sunday, highlighted by the game between the Dolphins and the buffalo bills for the AFC East title.
