Ken Griffey Jr. Subjects Linda Cohn to Incredibly Awkward Interview

So, this actually happened yesterday on SportsCenter when Ken Griffey Jr. appeared to promote the 25th anniversary of Upper Deck, the company that issued Junior's coveted rookie card in 1989. Consummate professional Linda Cohn kept her composure and attempted to give Griffey -- who expressed about as much enthusiasm as a guy going through a root canal -- opportunities to give something other than a single word or a grunt. The interview actually lasted longer -- these were just "highlights" from the travesty of a conversation.

Afterwards, Cohn, who at first seemed genuinely excited to talk with Griffey, let it rip.

Later, Griffey apologized via Instagram. He also apologized to Cohn on the phone, and she accepted.

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

Chalk it up to a bad day for the Griff, who pretty much assured that he will never play in a Family Feud "Fast Money" round.
