Linda Cohn puts Ken Griffey Jr. in check after awkward interview

Linda Cohn conducted one of the most awkward interviews we’ve ever seen on Wednesday with Ken Griffey Jr. It was nearly two minutes of Cohn talking to herself, while Griffey responded with one-word answers. The segment must make Upper Deck, for whom Griffey is out promoting, really excited about their spokesman.

Following Griffey’s attempt to make Cohn look stupid on air, the SportsCenter anchor took to Twitter to talk about the “waste” of time.

Kudos to Cohn. She deserves to vent after doing an incredibly professional job of keeping the interview rolling. And for Griffey? Well, hopefully there was more behind why he was acting like that – because if I was Upper Deck, I’d be looking for a new spokesman. Who knows, maybe his cat died today.
