On Wednesday, Ken Griffey Jr. made an appearance on SportsCenter for an “interview” with Linda Cohn. I quote interview because what Griffey gave was anything but that. Less than 24 hours later and the former slugger apologized to Cohn for the way he acted.
I want to apologize to Linda for the way things went today. I was in the middle of a cough attack and felt a little ill and didn’t want to walk off the set. Linda has always been professional to me and my family . I’m sorry, Junior @espn @sportcenter @lindacohn
He also called Cohn to personally apologize, which Cohn accepted.
Just got off phone w Ken Griffey Jr. He apologized sincerely for how he came across in @SportsCenter int. I accepted his apology.

Kudos to Griffey for quickly manning up and admitting that he acted unprofessionally.
