8 Awkward Interviews That Make The Jerry Sandusky Q&A Look Comfortable

Tuesday, November 15 by
Bob Costas, in an interview that's about as far removed from sports as possible.  

Let’s see. Jerry Sandusky’s in the news again, slightly more prominently than he was yesterday, due to the fact that he was interviewed by Bob Costas. When he was asked if he was sexually attracted to young boys, it took him over 15 seconds to say “no.” Not exactly the sort of knee-jerk response that fills us with confidence.

There were lots of reasons that it was an awkward interview, not the least of which was that a grown man was on TV being asked if he f*cks kids. But his interview is a step below the truly awkward and awful.

You think we’d make that statement without backing it up? He are some Q&A’s that got the Sandusky thing beat in the awkward department.

Wow. Little Anakin Skywalker doesn’t want to be interviewed. I don’t know what his deal is, but it would appear that, off-camera, several minutes before the interview, someone went ahead and peed in his Cheerios. Unfortunate stuff. He’s big into editing now, in case you were wondering. And no, he doesn’t hang on to all those stupid collectibles.
